|Height||6 ft 2 in|
|Date of Birth||August 27, 1953|
Peter Stormare is a Swedish actor who is known for his acting in some highly successful movies, including The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Prison Break (2005). When he joined Stockholm at the Royal National Theatre of Sweden, he found another boy with the same name, Peter Storm, so he changed his surname to ‘Stormare’ to be unique.
In his initial search for roles in American projects, his strategy was to accept all the parts where his role was a foreigner, since, he didn’t think he could compete with the big names of that time, Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise, and Nicolas Cage.
