Mads Mikkelsen Talks A Royal Affair
'I'm not the big romantic'

submit to reddit

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen makes no bones about a career spent at least partly over the Atlantic. "I'm engaged to Hollywood," he jokes. "If there's something I find I have to do, I'll do it. Otherwise I'll just stay home and have a vacation." Sure enough, his popcorn flicks (Clash Of The Titans, The Three Musketeers) have been mixed with arthouse films (Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, Valhalla Rising) in recent times. His latest, acclaimed historical drama A Royal Affair, is made in his homeland of Denmark, where it's a romantic tale familiar to all schoolchildren. Mikkelsen plays royal physician Johann Struensee, a man whose eyes for the queen lead him into dangerous territory. We looked up the Danish for "love doctor" and went to meet him.
