With his Game of Thrones character Tormund Giantsbane, Kristofer Hivju became an instant worldwide fan favourite, which he remained from season 3 all the way to the finale.
His talents didn’t go unnoticed in Hollywood, as he got the chance to perform in The Fate of the Furious (aka Fast & Furious 8) as Rhodes, the main henchman of Charlize Theron’s character. He also convincingly portrayed the Security Chief in M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth, in which he delivered impressive dialogue and monologue scenes.
He may have reached global praise for his Game of Thrones performance, but Kristofer Hivju was already quite the celebrity in the Nordic region. With lead roles in the movies Operation North Pole, Turist & the soon to be released TWIN, as well as in the fantastic crime series Beck, we know we haven’t seen the last of this actor yet.
Kristofer Hivju is the first guest actor of FACTS Fall 2019, on October 19-20, in Flanders Expo Ghent! He will be available for photoshoots, autographs and panels on Saturday and Sunday.
