Mikkelsen is known for his performances as the main antagonist, Le Chiffre, in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale; his 2012 Cannes Film Festival Best Actor Award-winning performance as Lucas, a high school teacher accused of sexual assault of a minor in the Danish drama film The Hunt; and as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a cannibalistic serial killer / forensic psychologist on NBC's Hannibal.         

Before he became a world-renowned film and television actor,  Mikkelsen was a gymnast and a professional dancer trained at the illustrious Swedish ballet academy, Balettakademien in Gothenburg.

During this time, he met and fell in love with Hanne, who was a dance choreographer. They started dating in 1987 and tied the knot some thirteen years later, on December 2, 2000.
