Lars Dittmann Mikkelsen (born May 6, 1964 in Gladsaxe, Denmark) is an actor from Denmark. He is the older brother of Mads Mikkelsen.

In 2018, he won an International Emmy Award for his role in Danish television drama Herrens Veje (English title: Ride Upon the Storm).



Tropes appearing in his works:

  • Ink-Suit Actor: Grand Admiral Thrawn's physical appearance in Rebels is based off of Mikkelsen's, hence why his physical features seem to be different from Legends.
  • Omniglot: Like his brother. He not only knows Danish, but also Swedish, German, and English, as well as having mastered many different accents. In House of Cards, he plays as a Russian politician that at one point sings the Russian folk song, Korobushka, though it's not known if he's actually fluent in the language or not.
  • Villainous Cheekbones Like his brother, his sharp features help when he's cast in villainous roles (and help exaggerate the resemblance Viktor Petrov has to Vladimir Putin.)


How well does it match the trope?
