“Cannes [award for the role in ‘The Hunt’] was a very, very big experience for me. I can’t overestimate how much it meant for me in the sense that I can’t really measure it in terms of career. But while we didn’t make the film for awards, I would be a liar to say that we don’t cherish it when we get a nice pat on the back. I was really happy that day [in Cannes] and so, so proud of the film.”

- Mads Mikkelsen about his Best Actor award

He won the Best Actor Award in Cannes in 2012. But does he think that it necessarily helps him in his career?
“I don’t sure that it’s like ‘because I won the Palme I get the role’. It is good if someone had not heard of me, and find me interesting because I won the award, and begin to watch my films. But for myself it helps. There are many rainy days in our job, both physically and mentally. And then it’s nice to be able to look back and say: 'At least I’m not fuck up this!’” - says Mads Mikkelsen.
