PILOU ASBAEK

Danish actor Pilou Asbæk is quickly amassing an impressive resume of diverse roles, fearlessly evolving his body of work with each new project and proving to be one of Hollywood’s most sought after talents in film and television.

Asbæk will next be seen in Paramount/Bad Robot’s OVERLORD with Wyatt Russell and Bokeem Woodbine. The film, directed by Julius Avery, is scheduled for release on December 6th, 2018.

He just wrapped production for the eighth and final season of the HBO blockbuster series GAME OF THRONES. He made his debut in Season 6 as the newly elected Lord of the Iron Islands, ‘Euron Greyjoy’.

In 2017, Asbæk could be seen in Rupert Sander’s live-action adaptation of the anime classic GHOST IN A SHELL opposite Scarlett Johansson. He starred in the leading male role of ‘Batou’, a heavy-duty cyborg and second in command. In 2017, Asbæk was also seen in Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s directorial debut WOODSHOCK opposite Kirsten Dunst, which released by A24.

In 2016, Asbæk starred as ‘Pontius Pilate’ in Timur Bekmambetov’s remake of BEN-HUR opposite Jack Huston and Morgan Freeman. This follows his recurrent collaborations with Danish writer-director Tobias Lindholm, including APRIL 9TH, HIJACKING, and the latest A WAR, which received a 2015 Academy Award nomination for “Best Foreign Film”. Asbæk also co-starred in Luc Besson’s smash hit LUCY opposite Scarlett Johansson, which grossed over $460 million worldwide for Universal and Summit.

On the small screen, he is well known for his role as the villainous spin-doctor ‘Kasper Juul’ in the critically acclaimed Danish political drama BORGEN, created by Adam Price. Asbæk also starred in the third and final season of Showtime’s medieval drama THE BORGIAS. This was followed by a leading role in BBC Four’s Scandi-drama miniseries 1864.
Prior, Asbæk starred in severable notable Danish films including: Mikkel Nørgaard’s crime thriller THE ABSENT ONE, Bille August’s powerful family drama SILENT HEART, Niels Arden Oplev’s coming-of-age dramedy SPEED WALKING, Christoffer Boe’s biographical drama SEX, DRUGS & TAXATION, Tobias Lindholm and Michael Noer’s prison drama R and Pernille Fischer Christensen’s drama A FAMILY.
