Mads Mikkelsen is having a big 2016. The Danish acting professional, maybe best known for Casino Royale or, if you are so inclined, Hannibal, has wound up in 2 enormous movie businesses, Marvel & Star Wars. In the just-released Doctor Strange, Mikkelsen performs Kaecilius, a highly powerful sorcerer & leader of the Zealots. In the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, he performs Galen Erso, a amazing researcher kidnapped by the Empire to help build their Death Star.
While discussing with Mikkelsen, a question asked to him who would win in a battle, Kaecilius or Galen?
“I think he is very hard to beat, Kaecilius, in a way that he has something real people do not have — he has magic abilities, he is a sorcerer,” Mikkelsen responded. “I find it a hard time seeing any gun or any blade giving him actual trouble.”
What about friendship? asked to him if he had want to get drinks with either Kaecilius or Galen. “I mean, if Kaecilius … maybe a several years before we meet him,” Mikkelsen said, obviously wary of getting drinks with a bad guy. “Galen … I am not sure he is a drinking man. Yes, I would. I would have to have a word with him & tell him how to do [things] different.”
