Connie Nielsen Bio
Connie Inge-Lise Nielsen was born 1965 in a little town in Jutland, Denmark. She moved to a small, seaside village named Elling with her family when she was 10. She was raised in a tiny fishing community. She had her first acting experience in a cabaret, written by her mother when she was 15 years old. At the age of 18, she headed to Paris to pursue her acting career, which led to further work and study in Rome, Milan, South Africa and New York.
Her American film debut was in the 1993 watery thriller Voyage, opposite Rutger Hauer and Eric Roberts.

The film sunk under bad reviews, but critics took note of Connie's thespian abilities, and gave her a hardy thumbs-up. After her move from Europe to New York, Connie landed a string of diverse roles, such as the demoness who seduces Keanu Reeves in The Devil's Advocate; Ben Stiller's junkie friend in Permanent Midnight, and Tim Robbin's stong-willed wife in Mission To Mars. But it was her part of the troubled Lucilla in the blockbuster hit, Gladiator, opposite Russell Crowe, that brought her to the attention of international audiences.
In addition to her acting, Nielsen is also a trained singer and dancer and is fluent in English, German, Danish, Swedish, French and Italian.
Connie currently lives in New York with her son Sebastian.
