Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A chameleonic powerhouse, actor Thure Lindhardt first reached international audiences with a small role in the Oscar-winning "Pelle erobreren" ("Pelle the Conqueror") (1987). Determined to reach his full potential as a serious actor, Lindhardt continuously chose challenging roles, including an autistic young man suspected of murder in "Her I nærheden" ("A Place Nearby") (2000). Winning several international awards, he went on to notch high-profile roles in "Nordkraft" (2005), "Flame and Citron" (2008), "Broderskab" ("Brotherhood") (2009) and "The Island" (2011) as well as supporting turns in mainstream American projects like "Into the Wild" (2007) and "Angels & Demons" (2009). He wowed critics around the world for his unforgettable turn as a gay filmmaker enmeshed in a searing, addiction-plagued romance with a closeted lawyer (Zachary Booth) in the powerful independent film "Keep the Lights On" (2012), which earned him considerable acclaim. Considered by many to be one of the greatest Danish actors of his generation, Thure Lindhardt brought an impressive intensity to any role which he chose to inhabit.
