"[A] legendary actor who needs no introduction. He may be the only guy in the world who could pull off appearing in both The Seventh Seal and Rush Hour 3."

Carl Adolf "Max" von Sydow (10 April 1929 – 9 March 2020) was a Swedish veteran character actor with a career spanning more than six decades.

After getting his break in Swedish movies, notably in Ingmar Bergman's works such as The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries and Through a Glass Darkly, he began working internationally in the mid-'60s. Through the decades, he played (among many others) Jesus, a fairly badass servant of Jesus, Satan, Blofeld, Ming the Merciless, Liet-Kynes, and Robin Hood's dad, and all in half a dozen different languages. While he never won an Academy Award, he was nominated twice, for Pelle the Conqueror in 1987 and for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close in 2012. He also received two Golden Globe Award nominations and two Primetime Emmy Award nominations during his career.

Von Sydow spent his final years in France and held dual Swedish and French citizenship. Despite appearances he was, by his own admission, an awful chess player.
