Biography

Thure Frank Lindhardt was born in Copenhagen on December 24, 1974. At the age of twelve, he already appeared in  Danish feature films, and following his high school graduation he attended an acting school in Odense until 1998. He then performed in numerous Danish stage, TV and film productions. He received rave reviews and a nomination for the Danish film award Bodil for his portrayal of a man suffering from autism in the drama "Her i nærheden" (DK 2000).

In 2004, he was featured in two memorable German film releases: Michael Klier's "Farland" and Achim von Borries' "Was nützt die Liebe in Gedanken" ("Love in Thoughts"), in which he played the lover of suicidal Günther Scheller (August Diehl). Since then, he has regularly appeared in German productions apart from his work in Denmark.

Lindhardt was again nominated for the Bodil Award for his performance in the Danish crime drama "Nordkraft" (2005). He received yet another Bodil nomination – as well as a nomination for the 2008 European Film Award – for his portrayal of a Danish WWII resistance fighter in "Tage des Zorns" ("Flame & Citron", DK/DE).

After appearing as a Swiss Guardsman in the Hollywood production "Illuminati" (2009), he played a homosexual director whose relationship with a drug-addled lawyer comes to a tragic end in Ira Sachs' autobiographical romance "Keep the Lights On" (2012). This performance garnered Lindhardt several nominations and acclaim from critics. He went on to star in "Formentera", which premiered in the Forum section of the 2012 Berlin IFF.

Lindhardt was cast in the role of kidnapper Wolfgang Priklopil for the screen adaptation of Natascha Kampuschs autobiographical account "3096 Tage". The film was released in Germany in February 2013.
