Bill Skarsgård

Bill Skarsgård was born in 1990 in Sweden; he is the son of My Skarsgård and the famous actor Stellan Skarsgård. Naturally, the young man turned to acting, along with his brothers Alexander and Gustaf Skarsgård. After small roles on Swedish television, Bill distinguished himself in cinema in Simple Simon by Andreas Ohman (2010). In this film, the actor plays Simon, a young man suffering from Asperger’s syndrome. The work caused a sensation, scarcely representing Sweden at the Oscar for best foreign film.
 
The following year, he shared the poster with his compatriot Alicia Vikander, the future winner of the Oscar for Best Actress for The Danish Girl, in Kronjuvelerna, a pretty tender and poetic story. The young man then leaves the borders of his country to shoot Anna Karenine alongside Keira Knightley and Jude Law. In this project of international scope, he camped Captain Makhotin. Bill’s career took off in 2013 with a leading role in the horror series Hemlock Grove. He plays the role of Roman Godfrey for 3 seasons alongside Famke Janssen.
 
The Swede took his first steps in Hollywood in 2015 by landing the role of Matthew in the action blockbuster for teenagers Divergente 3. We learn the following year that he will lend his build (he measures 1m92) and his angel face to the clown Influenza-Sou in Ca, a new adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel in which a mischievous scoundrel terrorizes the city of Derry, Maine. He replaces Will Poulter, cast in the first place but ultimately unable to assume the role because of a scheduling conflict.
Bill then shares the poster with Adrien Brody in Emperor, an action-adventure film set in the 16th century, and with Ryan Reynolds in the crazy (and lucrative) Deadpool 2. The success of Ca ($700 million in global revenue!) logically leads the actor to replace for his sequel, Ca Chapter 2, which is 27 years after the events of the first part.
