Personal Quote:

[on Thor (2011)] I have blood from Dutch and Norwegian. So, I feel like it was necessity that I could join the film. Because I feel "Thor" is the beginning of finding my roots, and I found that I have family in America, I want to take my time and put effort on my future work so that foreign people get to know me better, and I also want to enjoy that process itself!

Trivia:

His mother is an American with native lineage. See more »
