    Max von Sydow

    Max Von Sydow, best remembered as the quintessential handsome actor with looks that could simply flabbergast your senses will always be loved and respected for his acting abilities. He is Swedish and began his career as a theater artist but soon gained recognition in Hollywood.

    Some of his remarkable movies, like, Hawaii and Flash Gordon remain classics and have been watched time and again. Sydow always took upon roles that showed him in different avatars and allowed him to explore new avenues as an actor. Such was his charisma that he was the first choice when deciding on the lead actor to play the stylish agent James Bond in the 1962 original movie Dr. No.

    Famous for playing complicated characters onscreen, Sydow was a man of few words. Much of his acting was done by the use of his powerful body language and an impressive tone.  

    Max Von Sydow retired in 2012 and has not appeared on screen since then.
