Quote
1 I try not to carry any character back home because that would be extremely frustrating for my family. It stays with you, of course, if for 14 hours a day you’re being accused of something you haven’t done and you can’t get your frustration out anywhere. Whereas with a character like Hannibal, he’s probably the happiest man I’ve ever played, even though he’s doing horrendous things. He’s a happy duckling and life is beautiful.
2 [his version of Hannibal Lecter] He loves fine art. He is a three-piece- suit man. He loves classical music. He hates everything that is banal. And he loves the beauty of everything that’s refined. He’s trying to make friends with people, so I can’t play that one card of being evil. It has to be hidden.
3 I ask a million questions, and I insist on having answers. I think that is what we have to do. I have to know what the director wants. Some are very much in their head, and I need to force it out of them. I just can’t play around for eight hours and see if something happens.
4 I take my work enormously seriously. When I do something it has to feel right. Everything has to be right. I’m not ambitious about my career, but I am ambitious with each job. I can be fairly annoying to work with. No compromises. Let’s put it this way: compromises are from hell.
5 On his 1937 Danish Nimbus motorcycle: It is like something Steve McQueen would ride. I love the freedom and it doesn’t go quite as fast as a modern bike, which pleases my wife.
6 I’m a beer man. I tried to drink whiskey and Scotch but I don’t get it. It smells like a girl who didn’t shower and just splashed a lot of perfume on.
7 On the fact that he is voted “the sexiest man in Denmark” over and over: “I’d rather be voted ‘the sexiest man in Denmark’ than ‘the ugliest man in Denmark’.”
Fact
1 Member of the ‘Official Competition’ jury at the 69th Cannes International Film Festival in 2016.
2 He has played the accountant in the music video “Bitch Better Have My Money” from the singer Rihanna.
3 Has appeared in three Danish films that were submitted for the Oscar in the Best Foreign Language Film category: Efter brylluppet (2006), A Royal Affair (2012) and Jagten (2012).
4 Was a guest at Kristian Luuk show (Godnatt Sverige) [May 2005]
5 Shooting the Danish movie Adam’s Apples (2005). [August 2004]
6 USA: Playing lead role of Dr. Hannibal Lecter in NBC thriller Hannibal, based on the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris [April 2013]
7 The first Danish actor to play Hannibal Lecter. He is also the tallest of the four actors to play Lecter to date.
8 Received an award at the Cannes Film Festival from Li Gong. Mikkelsen plays Hannibal Lecter in the NBC series Hannibal (2013), Li played Lady Murasaki (Lecter’s aunt and lover) in Hannibal Rising (2007).
9 Plays Le Chifre, the villain of Ian Fleming’s first James Bond novel, Casino Royale (2006). Fleming’s final Bond novel was The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), the villain and title character of which was played by Fleming’s cousin, Christopher Lee. Mikkelsen and Lee have also both played Count Rochefort in The Three Musketeers (1973)/The Three Musketeers (2011).
10 Knighted on April 16th 2010 by Her Majesty Margrethe 2nd, Queen of Denmark.
11 Wasn’t a James Bond fan before starring in Casino Royale (2006).
12 Mads is a form of Matthew; meaning “Gift of God”.
13 A keen motorcyclist owning a rare 1937 Danish Nimbus.
14 Learned Swedish during his 1-year-long dance training in Göteborg because he grew tired of Swedes only smiling and nodding at him when he spoke to them in Danish.
15 Speaks Swedish fluently and has lived in Gothenburg for many years.
16 Mads is pronounced like ‘mas’ in Christmas. Mikkelsen is ‘mikkel’ as you would pronounce the metal ‘nickel’ and ‘sen’ is pronounced ‘zen’ – Mickelzen.
