Viggo Mortensen - The Alfred Dunhill BAFTA Life in Pictures

Saturday, 17 October

18:30 Reception
19:00 Event Commences

Join BAFTA and Alfred Dunhill as we celebrate the life in pictures of Viggo Mortensen.

Mortensen has made a slow, steady climb up the ranks to become one of Hollywood's most reliable and in-demand talents. After several years of experience in live theater, Mortensen made his first film appearance playing an Amish farmer in Peter Weir's Witness. During the 1990s, Mortensen appeared in supporting roles in a variety of films, including Jane Campion's The Portrait of a Lady, Young Guns II, Prison, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Sean Penn's The Indian Runner, Carlito's Way, Crimson Tide, G.I. Jane plus many, many more.

However Mortensen is probably most well known for his role as Aragorn in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy (released in 2001, 2002 and 2003). Though he had little trouble finding work, Mortensen took his time searching for that one breakthrough that would catapult his career onto the global stage. The Lord of Rings trilogy was that catalyst and led to a wealth of opportunities, including the critically acclaimed and award-nominated History of Violence (2005) directed by David Cronenberg. This was followed in 2006, by the role of Captain Diego Alatriste in Alatriste, the most expensive Spanish-language film ever made. In 2007 he collaborated with Cronenburg again in the movie Eastern Promises, when he played the role of a scheming Russian gangster in London. Viggo's role earned him a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor.

Exceedingly humble about success and uncharacteristically un-Hollywood, Mortensen managed to stay somewhat reclusive and focused on other interests outside of acting - namely painting and writing poetry - despite becoming one of the most recognizable stars in the world.

Mortenson will next appear in an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Award winning novel, The Road, directed by John Hillcoat and releasing in January 2010.
