Viggo Mortensen is an actor. He was born in New York in 1958, but spent much of his childhood in Argentina and some in Denmark. He speaks Spanish and Danish fluently. In April, 2010, he was knighted by the Queen of Denmark. For more information see Wikipedia and IMDB.
Viggo has a large and active fan base, offering him gifts and coming together to donate for causes such as tsunami relief.
Some worry about their Viggo obsession:
- When I see Viggo's fearlessness I admire it in him and crave it for myself. The next step is to find a way to cultivate it in myself, because expressing creativity vicariously through adoring or emulating Viggo or anyone else is ultimately not satisfying..
