A PERFECT MURDER
Since his debut as Alexander Godunov's brother in 1985's "Witness,"
VIGGO MORTENSEN (David Shaw) has enjoyed a career marked
by several standout performances. From his role in "Crimson
Tide" to his work in Sean Penn's "The Indian Runner,"
his talents have continuously been recognized by critics.
Most recently, Mortensen starred opposite Demi Moore in Ridley
Scott's "G.I. Jane." He was also seen in the Universal
thriller "Daylight" with Sylvester Stallone, opposite
Nicole Kidman in Jane Campion's "The Portrait of a Lady,"
and in Kevin Spacey's directorial debut, "Albino Alligator."
He recently finished filming "Over the Moon" opposite
Diane Lane and Oscar-winner Anna Paquin.
Born in New York to a Danish father and American mother, Mortensen
spent the early part of his childhood in Manhattan. His family
traveled a great deal and he spent several years living in Argentina,
Venezuela and Denmark. He began acting in 1982 after studying
at Warren Robertson's Theatre Workshop in New York, appearing
in several plays and eventually moving to Los Angeles, where his
performance in "Bent" at the Coast Playhouse earned
him a Dramalogue Critics Award.
Mortensen's additional film credits include "Carlito's Way,"
"Young Americans," "The Prophecy," "Boiling
Point" and "Fresh Horses." Possessed with an inherent
skill for mastering foreign languages, he also starred opposite
Angela Molina in the Spanish film "Gimlet" and in "My
Brother's Gun," directed by Ray Loriga.
A book of Mortensen's poetry entitled Ten Last Night was
recently published through Illuminati Press. Mortensen is also
an accomplished photographer.
