He graduated in 2004 and made his Hollywood debut in 2011 with the science fiction horror film The Thing.
Growing up, Hivju read a lot of Icelandic Viking sagas while his friends were reading comics. His fascination with the Vikings may have influenced his style (smiley), he totally looks like a Viking!
In March 2020, Hivju announced he had tested positive for COVID-19 but luckily a month later he had made a full recovery.
