Pilou Asbæk as Cyrus with Sylvester Stallone in Samaritan

Pilou Asbæk (born on March 2, 1982) is 40 years old Danish actor whom people recognize as Euron Greyjoy from “Game of Thrones.” He recently appeared alongside Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Sophia Taylor Ali, Antonio Banderas, and Tati Gabrielle in Ruben Fleischer-directed adventurous film “Uncharted.”

In 2022, this 6-footer actor played the role of a villain named Cyrus in the Julius Avery-directed movie “Samaritan.” Here Sylvester Stallone played the role of a hero named Samaritan, who everybody thought left the world, 20-years ago after an epic battle. If you want, you can watch it on Prime Video.

Currently, Pilou is working on multiple projects, simultaneously including “Snafu,” “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” “I.S.,” and “Befrielsen.”

Thrown Outside the Balcony By Siblings?

Pilou Asbæk (age 40) was born in Copenhagen on March 2, 1982. Many people do not know that his full name is Johan Phillip Asbæk, but his loved ones call him Pilou – which means ‘little Philip.’ The actor grew up in a wealthy upper-class home as the son of two Copenhagen-based gallery owners, Patricia (mother) and Jacob Asbæk (father).

In his childhood, he was surrounded by people from the Danish art scene and the creative industry – but also by two older brothers, Thomas and Martin, who loved to tease the family’s latecomer. Pilou’s elder siblings were harsh towards him, and one day they threw him off a balcony, but luckily he landed on a big sofa.

In the late 1990s, Pilou Asbæk was enrolled at Herlufsholm boarding school, and it was here that he first started acting in theatre. Later he attended the Danish National School of Performing Arts to fulfill his dream of becoming an actor.

Success as an Actor

At 20, Asbæk got to play a minor role named “Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself.” The part he played in this project was nothing special but gave him the motivation to continue trying. Unfortunately, he had to wait 6 years for his second acting job, which came in 2008 when he got picked for a movie named “Worlds Apart.” That year he also debuted as a T.V. actor with Soren Fauli’s “Deroute.”

In 2009, Pilou got picked for a political drama, “Borgen,” to play the role of Kasper Juul. After this series, the career of this Danish actor took off. Later he got to be part of some more fantastic productions like “1864,” “R,” “A Hijacking,” and “Speed Walking.”

Things got perfect for him after he appeared alongside Scarlett Johansson in “Lucy.” During an interview, he described the experience of working with Johansson as a “dream come true.”

Although there are a lot more impressive projects that Pilou has worked on, nothing comes closer to the fame that “Game of Thrones” helped him earn. In an interview with NME, he accepted that “Game of Thrones” changed his life.

Who is Pilou Asbæk Married To?

Asbæk is a happily married man, and his wife, Anna Bro, is a playwriter. The Danish couple also has a daughter named Agnes Bro Asbæk. Philip has traveled a great deal with his work, which sometimes caused problems when he returned home to his small family. The contrast between outside and at home can be difficult.

Therefore, at one point, his wife Anna began to write down some rules for how Pilou gets home from a trip. His wife made him agree that he has to indulge entirely in the atmosphere at home; also, he cannot come home as some colonial master and try to convert the original population.
