Biography

Thure Lindhardt is one of the most critically acclaimed Danish actors of his generation. He possesses a rare ability to combine his innocent and delicate appearance with a dangerous and sinister psyche. He began his career at the age of 12, where he played the role of a classmate in Bille August’s film, ‘Pelle the Conqueror’, which won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ in 1987. Thure continued his training at the Odense Theatre School and in 1998 was named recipient of the ‘Reumert Award’ for ‘Best New Talent’ for his professional debut in ‘Shopping and Fucking’ at Café Teatret that same year. Thure was a supporting role in DR1’s ‘Edderkoppen’, and in the Lars von Trier-produced family saga, Morten Korch’s ‘Ved Stillebækken’.

Lindhardt garnered international acclaim, including a ‘Best Actor’ nomination at both the ‘Bodil’ Awards and the ‘Robert’ Festival for his lead role as ‘Brian’, an autistic boy suspected of murder, in ‘A Place Nearby’, which was featured in the official selection at the 50th Berlin Film Festival, where Thure was also named ‘Shooting Star’.

Thure has since appeared in such films as ‘Angels in Fast Motion’ for which he won the ‘Robert’ award, and ‘Flame & Citron’ for which he received nominations ‘Best Actor in a Lead Role’ both at the ‘Robert’ awards and the ‘European Film Awards’ together with Mads Mikkelsen. Thure had his first American role in Sean Penn’s ‘Into the Wild’, and soon after in Ron Howard’s ‘Angels & Demons’. At the Berlin Film Festival in 2012, the American indie film ‘Keep The Lights On’ won the ‘Teddy’ Award. The film had its world premiere at Sundance this year, and both Thure and the film received tremendous reviews in America. Thure was the lead role opposite American actor Zach Booth. The film was directed by Ira Sachs, and was also selected for festivals such as: Tribeca, San Francisco, Torino and CphPix, where Thure’s lead role in Eddie – the sleepwalking cannibal- also screened. On the 21st of May, the TV series ‘The Spiral’ had its world premiere. Thure was one of the six lead roles. A co-production between Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Holland and Belgium, and each country has their actor represented in a leading role. ‘The Artist’ was the TV series’ working title. The shootings took place in Brussels and Copenhagen, during which Thure also worked in Dublin in a major supporting role in the Oscar-winning director Neil Jordan’s upcoming vampire film ‘Byzantium’. Thure also worked in Germany, starring in the highly talked about feature film ‘3096’, which is the film version of Natasha Kampbush’s biography of her kidnapping and captivity in a cellar for exactly 3,096 days before she managed to escape. Thure starred against British actress Antonia Campbell-Hughes.
