Lundgren in 2018

Hans Lundgren, better known as Dolph Lundgren (born 3 November 1957), is a Swedish actor, filmmaker, and martial artist. Lundgren's breakthrough came in 1985, when he starred in Rocky IV as Ivan Drago. Since then, he has starred in more than 40 films, almost all of them in the action genre.


  • I walked in to a Westwood movie theater [at the Rocky IV premiere] as Grace Jones' boyfriend and walked out ninety minutes later as the movie star Dolph Lundgren. I was shell-shocked for years from the mind-boggling and daunting experience of being a student-athlete from tiny Sweden suddenly having to live up a new action-star persona. […] Karate and physical fitness have kept me reasonably sane in a very tough and sometimes insane business.
