Viggo’s father is from Denmark. His mom is a New Yorker. He has two brothers Charles and Walter. The movie hunk has had many odd jobs, from dock worker to flower seller. He married in 1982 and they lived in New York. He waited tables and worked as a bartender to make ends meet.  He started taking acting classes and eventually landed a small role Witness.

Viggo almost turned down “Lord of the Rings” because it would mean time away from his son. But his son, Henry talked him into taking the role.
