VIGGO MORTENSEN

VIGGO MORTENSEN

Actor & director, USA

Présentation

Viggo Mortensen’s breakthrough role was as a young Amish man in WITNESS by Peter Weir, but he became a major international star thanks to his performance as Aragorn in the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy by Peter Jackson. He has starred in some 40 critically acclaimed movies, three of them with David Cronenberg (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, EASTERN PROMISES, A DANGEROUS METHOD). He moves effortlessly from demanding auteur works (PSYCHO by Gus Van Sant, JAUJA by Lisandro Alonso) to action roles, like that of a soldier in the Spanish Golden Age (CAPTAIN ALATRISTE by Agustin Diaz Yanes), or grimly challenging roles like the father trying to protect his son in a post-apocalyptic world, in THE ROAD by John Hillcoat.
