Let’s get to know: Thure Lindhart

Many actors do indeed surface more and more each day, however, I don’t think it’s a particularly difficult task to pick up on someone’s talent. Good performances in cinema are like wine: You may not be an expert on it, but if it’s bad…YOU’LL KNOW!

However, a push in an interesting direction is always needed. So let’s get to know : Thure Lindhart, a young actor from Danemark! I won’t reveal too much about him and will let you do your research if you’re interested.I will simply state my 3 reasons as to why Lindhart is an interesting artist to watch more closely:

1- His works with Danish director Ole Christian Madsen will give you an insight as to contemporary Danish cinema through “Nordkraft”(2005) & “Flame & Citron”(2008).

2- Despite of his talent, he didn’t sell out to the Hollywood money-making machine (yet) and the only American film he starred in briefly was “Into the Wild” (2007).

3- He is capable of changing his looks dramatically from one role to another & the shift is brilliant on screen. Take the photo below for example. In this shot, Lindhart gets his make-up done for “Nordkraft”, in which he painfully plays a junkie.

He lost around 19 lbs for that role and delivered the character with great intensity. Oh and by the way, it is actually the very first film to be shot in Christiania in Danemark,  a town known for drug trafficking, just because the pushers wanted some “good publicity”. Oh, and the film also has a great soundtrack, The Raveonettes included with their “Beat City” !

NB- For another great Danish actor, check out these cool photos of Mads Mikkelsen, declaring his love for The Ramones here & a film in which Mikkelsen starred, directed by Ole Christian Madsen named “Prag” here.
