ANGELS & DEMONS

Despite his relatively young age, NIKOLAJ LIE KAAS (Assassin/Mr. Gray) already ranks as one of the most critically-acclaimed actors to emerge from Scandinavia. Since the early 1990s, he has carved out a remarkable career on both screen and stage. Kaas made his feature debut at the age of 17 in Søren Kragh-Jacobsen's The Boys from St. Petri, a role for which he was awarded the Robert (Danish Academy Award) and Bodil (Danish Film Critics' Award) for Best Supporting Role in 1992. Immediately upon graduating from the National Theatre School in 1998, Kaas starred in Lars Von Trier's controversial black comedy, The Idiots. As one of several intelligent young adults who pretend to be mentally and/or physically disabled in order to provoke a social response, Kaas earned a second Bodil for Best Supporting Role in 1999. 

Over the years, Kaas has played a variety of different roles—often imbuing his adult characters with the unsentimental innocence and vulnerability of a child. Kaas earned his second Robert—this time for Best Leading Role—for his performance in Truly Human, a modern fable in which Kaas plays an invisible man who gets the chance to become a real human being. Susanne Bier's Open Hearts (2002) featured Kaas as a vibrant young man who must adjust to his new life as a quadriplegic. The critically-acclaimed film garnered Kaas his third Robert and third Bodil for Best Supporting Role as well as a Shooting Star Award at the Berlin Film Festival in 2003. Constantly playing against type, Kaas starred as the romantic lead in Reconstruction which won the Camera D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003. Other film credits include Ole Bornedal's Just Another Love Story (2007 Toronto and 2008 Sundance Film Festivals), Susanne Bier's Brothers with Connie Nielsen, Anders Thomas Jensen's Adam's Apples, In China They Eat Dogs, and Flickering Lights. Kaas made his English-language debut as a Russian gangster in Picturehouse/HBO's PU-239 opposite Paddy Considine and Radha Mitchell. Most recently, he starred in Kasper Barfoed's thriller, The Candidate. He stars next in Tomas Villum Jensen's film, At World's End. 

In addition to his extensive filmography, Kaas is no stranger to the stage and has starred in numerous productions at the Royal Danish Theatre alone—including classics like "Peer Gynt” (2001), for which he received a Reumert Award for Best Leading Role, as well as "Ivanhoe” (2003). Most recently, he starred in a revival of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” (2008).

Kaas resides in Copenhagen. He is represented by Industry Entertainment (US) and Lindberg Management.
