Aksel Hennie (born 29 October 1975) is a Norwegian actor, director, and screenwriter. He is best known for his leading role in the Norwegian film Headhunters (2011), and as Tydeus in Hercules. He also had a supporting role in Ridley Scott's The Martian (2015).
Hennie was born and raised in Lambertseter, Oslo. In his late teens, he was arrested for graffiti, and became an outcast in the community for confessing to the police. His "writes" or signatures were "Ceel" and "Mikro" and can still be seen around Oslo to this day. Most of them are crossed out / lined over because of his confession. This personal story contributed much of the background for the film Uno. The conviction against Hennie was one of the first such cases in Norway.
