Dolph Lundgren (born Hans Lundgren; 3 November 1957) is a Swedish actor, director, screenwriter, film producer, martial artist, and chemical engineer. He belongs to a generation of film actors who epitomise the action hero stereotype, alongside Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Steven Seagal, and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

He received a degree in chemistry from Washington State University, a degree in chemical engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm in the early 1980s, then a master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia in 1982. Lundgren holds a rank of 3rd dan black belt in Kyokushin Karate and was European champion in 1980 and 1981. While in Sydney, he became a bodyguard for Jamaican singer Grace Jones and began a relationship with her. They moved together to New York City, where after a short stint as a model and bouncer at the Manhattan nightclub The Limelight, Jones got him a small debut role in the James Bond film A View to a Kill as a KGB henchman.

Lundgren's breakthrough came when he starred in Rocky IV in 1985 as the imposing Russian boxer Ivan Drago. Since then, he has starred in more than 40 movies, almost all of them in the action genre. He portrayed He-Man in the 1987 science fantasy film Masters of the Universe, and Frank Castle in the 1989 film The Punisher. In the early 1990s, he also appeared in films such as Dark Angel (1990); Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991), alongside Brandon Lee; Universal Soldier (1992) opposite Jean-Claude Van Damme; Joshua Tree (1993), opposite Kristian Alfonso and George Segal; Johnny Mnemonic (1995), opposite Keanu Reeves; and Blackjack (1998), directed by John Woo. In 2004, Lundgren directed his first picture, The Defender, and subsequently helmed The Mechanik (2005), Missionary Man (2007), Command Performance (2009), and Icarus (2010), in which he also starred. After a long spell performing in direct-to-video films since 1995, 2010 marked his return to theaters with The Expendables, an on-screen reunion with Stallone, alongside an all-action star cast which included, among others, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Mickey Rourke. He reprised his role as Gunner Jensen in The Expendables 2 (2012) and The Expendables 3 (2014). The same year as The Expendables 3, Lundgren co-starred with Tony Jaa in Skin Trade, an action thriller about human trafficking that also starred Michael Jai White, Ron Perlman, and Peter Weller. The film marks his third collaboration with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa; the previous being Bridge of Dragons (1999); which, in turn, was preceded by Showdown in Little Tokyo. He is due to reprise his role as Gunner Jensen in The Expendables 4 (2017).

Biography

Lundgren speaks Swedish, English, some Spanish, some German, some French, some Japanese, and some Italian, but is not fluent in five languages as has often been reported.

During the 1980s, Lundgren had relationships with Jamaican singer Grace Jones and model Paula Barbieri. In 1994 he married Anette Qviberg, a jewellery designer and fashion stylist in Marbella. The couple decided they liked the place so much that over the years they rented out accommodation there before eventually buying a family home. They have two daughters: Ida Sigrid Lundgren (born 29 April 1996) and Greta Eveline Lundgren (born November 2001), both born in Stockholm. Lundgren and Qviberg have cited the reason for living away from Hollywood is that they want to give their children as normal a childhood as possible. In early May 2009, Lundgren's Marbella home was reportedly broken into by three masked burglars who tied up and threatened Qviberg, but fled when they spotted a family photo and realized that the house was owned by Lundgren. Dolph later stated that he believed the intruders to be from Eastern Europe and had contacts in Bulgaria investigating them, but to no avail; the intruders are still at large. After the incident, Lundgren's daughter, Ida, suffered from post traumatic stress disorder. His wife was the "most traumatized", and as of 2011, they are divorced. Dolph has since moved back to Los Angeles with his new girlfriend, Jenny Sandersson.
