Mads Mikkelsen Explained How He Prepared for His Villain Role in Indiana Jones 5

MOVIE NEWS – Mads Mikkelsen, the Danish actor, who has starred in many popular film franchises, recently detailed how he did his research for his role as the main villain in the new Indiana Jones movie. In the Dial of Destiny podcast, Mikkelsen revealed that his character is a former Nazi scientist who is taken over by the US government to work for NASA.


Mikkelsen also said that he based his character on a real person: Wernher von Braun, who was the leader of Hitler’s rocket program and later became a key figure in the Apollo program. The actor said that von Braun had interesting contradictions that inspired him.

“He was one of the greatest geniuses in rocket technology, but at the same time he was a Nazi. Then he went to America and continued his work there. I don’t know how much he regretted his past, or how proud he was of it. But these are things that are interesting from a character’s point of view,” Mikkelsen said.

Mikkelsen also expressed his enthusiasm for the Indiana Jones series, which he has been a fan of since his childhood. He praised the script, the director James Mangold and Harrison Ford, who he plays with along with Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The actor said Ford still delivers a fantastic performance as the iconic archaeologist.

“I love the Indiana Jones movies. They are like a fairy tale book. They are full of wonderful locations, exciting adventures and humor. And of course Harrison Ford, who is simply brilliant in this role. It’s great to work with him. He is very kind and funny. And very professional too. He is always ready to try something new,” Mikkelsen told.

Indiana Jones 5 is expected to hit theaters on July 29, 2022. The movie’s plot is still kept secret, but hopefully, it will offer a lot of thrilling adventures and mysteries for the iconic archaeologist and his companions.
