Pilou Asbæk

Graduated from The Danish National School of Theatre in 2008 and made his debut in Niels Arden Oplev’s film WORLD’S APART (2008).

In just a few years Pilou has become one of Danish cinema’s biggest talents after his leading role in Tobias Lindholm and Michael Noer’s R (2010); Pernille Fischer Christensen’s A FAMILY (2010); and above all in two TV series: THE LEFT WING GANG (2009) and the international hit BORGEN (2010) where he played the spin doctor Kasper Juul to great acclaim.

He was selected as a ‘Shooting Star’ at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival and in the same year he received a Robert and a Bodil Award for Best Male in a Leading Role in R (2010).
