Yorick van Wageningen (born 16 April 1964) is a Dutch actor who has performed in Dutch and American films, including The Chronicles of Riddick.


Van Wageningen was born in Baarn. After acting in several Dutch plays, movies, and television series, van Wageningen was asked to come to Hollywood to appear in Steven Spielberg's Minority Report. Due to problems with his visa, he was unable to work on that movie, but thereafter acted in a number of American movies, achieving a breakthrough with his role in The Chronicles of Riddick.

Back in the Netherlands, he starred in Winter in Wartime, based on a Dutch novel about World War II.

In 2011 he appeared in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo along with Daniel Craig, in the role of Nils Bjurman, the sexually abusive guardian of Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara). He garnered praise in the Dutch press for his portrayal of Ronnie, an Amsterdam gangster who experiences a spiritual resurrection after miraculously surviving an assassination attempt, in the 2013 film De wederopstanding van een klootzak.

Ronnie is a violent criminal from Amsterdam who miraculously survives an attempt on his life, and goes to Friesland with his bodyguard Janus to track down his would-be assassin. His quest is blended with that of Eduardo, an asylum seeker from Angola, who becomes acquainted with the life of Saint Boniface. In the account of the saint's chopping down of the Donar Oak he recognizes the connection between Frisian trees and his own belief in magic imported from Africa; both hail from a pre-Christian tradition and a world in which nature is worshiped.
