There’s an icy charm to Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen that marks him out on screen. Playing the eponymous anti-hero of NBC drama Hannibal or cold-hearted killer Le Chiffre in the Bond film Casino Royale, he’s all hauteur and high cheekbones, with a dash of psychopath for good measure. So far, so thrilling, but there’s more to the classically trained actor than that. His portrayal of Hannibal Lecter is laced with dark humour; his role as a man falsely accused of child abuse in The Hunt is heartbreaking; he is touching in the drama After the Wedding. Off screen, he’s a family man (he’s married with two children), although he’s likely to talk shop with his brother Lars Mikkelsen, also an acclaimed actor – the brothers have both been knighted by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. Mikkelsen is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the charity Refugees United. His guilty pleasure? Riding his 1937 Danish Nimbus motorbike (‘I love the freedom and it doesn’t go quite as fast as a modern bike, which pleases my wife,’ he says. Cool, talented, charming… Mads Mikkelsen has all the qualities to join our Style Set.



I had probably the best dream of my LIFE last night because it was all about me and Mads Mikkelsen being best friends and living on a boat together.

It wasn’t even a sexy dream which is kind of disappointing? But mostly okay because Mads Mikkelsen.

I have now been inspired to share with you…
