HOLLYWOOD heartthrob Mads Mikkelsen has bought a luxury pad in the heart of Palma, the Olive Press can reveal.
The Star Wars and Casino Royale star Mikkelsen is believed to have recently snapped up the apartment in hipster Santa Catalina.
Locals told the Olive Press award-winning actor Mikkelsen, 51, and his wife Hanne Jacobsen, 56, have been spotted dining out in the area’s trendy restaurants near the market.
“He bought an apartment here recently,” revealed a fellow Danish expat, who lives nearby. “I’m told its an amazing place.”
He has also been spotted relaxing around beauty spots Andratx and Santa Ponsa.
The Danish dynamo has been a long-time fan of Mallorca, and spent holidays on the island with his family in 2013 and 2014.
Recently, Mikkelsen won critical acclaim for his role as Hannibal Lecter in the TV series Hannibal, reprising Anthony Hopkins’ role as the demonic doctor.
Mikkelsen has carved out a niche for himself as a Hollywood ‘go-to’ bad guy, starring as James Bond villain Le Chiffre in 2006 blockbuster Casino Royale.
This year, he returned to his native Denmark to shoot a Carlsberg advert in Copenhagen.
Three-bedroom apartments in up-and-coming Santa Catalina are on the market for a cool €580,000.
