      Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

      Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

      Highest Rated: 98% Flee (2021)

      Lowest Rated: 14% The Baker (2007)

      Birthday: Jul 27, 1970

      Birthplace: Rudkøbing, Denmark

      Having established himself in a number of Danish films, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau made himself a known presence in America and abroad with both supporting and leading roles in high-profile projects. After getting his feet wet in international waters with the British-made World War II drama "Bent" (1997), Coster-Waldau was cast by Ridley Scott to participate in the director's acclaimed war thriller "Black Hawk Down" (2001). He subsequently had turns in the action thriller "My Name is Modesty" (2004) and the romantic comedy "Wimbledon" (2004), before reuniting with Scott for the less well-received medieval adventure "Kingdom of Heaven" (2005). Coster-Waldau made a brief, but memorable splash playing a cop trapped on Earth as an immortal on the short-lived series "New Amsterdam" (Fox, 2008), before joining the acclaimed cast of the epic medieval drama, "Game of Thrones" (HBO, 2011- ), which allowed him to display his considerable talents to a wider audience. Supporting roles in mainstream films like the Jessica Chastain-starring horror hit "Mama" (2013) and Tom Cruise's "Oblivion" (2013) increased his international profile even further.
