About David Dencik

David Dencik (born in Stockholm on October 31, 1974) is an award-winning actor.

His family moved to Denmark when he was very young. As a teenager, he spent his youth studying in Brazil, where he discovered Capoeira, the Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. The dance aspect of Capoeira made him take an interest in theatre. He later moved back to Sweden and attended Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. His wife Sofie is a lawyer who works in Copenhagen. He uses Denmark as his base, but since his work takes him to Sweden they also have an apartment in Stockholm.

After having had minor roles in different films, David Dencik became an established actor in Sweden for his role as the killer John Ausonius in the three-part TV mini-series Lasermannen in 2005.

In 2006, he starred in the comedy Everything About My Bush opposite Ola Rapace. In 2007, he appeared in the Danish feature film Daisy Diamond directed by Simon Staho.

He portrayed Fred Åkerström in the biographical film Cornelis starring Hank von Hell as Cornelis Vreeswijk. In 2011, he appeared in the Hollywood-adaption of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig and played Toby Esterhase in the film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2010) directed by Tomas Alfredsson. He also starred in the gay-themed Brotherhood (2009) and the Dimension Films thriller Regression (2015) opposite Ethan Hawke.

In 2017 he played brothel owner Alexander "Puss" Braun, in Jane Campion's acclaimed tv series Top of the Lake.
