It's so weird to look at those Mizumono gifs after seeing so much of Mads at cons/Q&As etc. How is this the same man, his face is so utterly controlled but he makes it look like his natural state which it so isn't. It's really a crime how little Mads has been accoladed. He appears so natural that people just assume he must be similar in real life.
I don’t think Mads gets enough credit for what he brings to the role.
Some people will say oh he’s doing nothing but sitting in a chair and looking cold.
is playing this dude:
same freaking dude. and look at the ripple of different emotions that comes off his face in that second gif. the way his eyes narrow, the tensing of his jaw, his eyebrows. IN ONE BLINK.
Mads’s acting game is unfreakingbelievable. It takes a rare actor to pull Hannibal Lecter off in the subtle way he plays him and Mads can do it effortlessly to the point where people forget that this is even a role.
