Alex Høgh Andersen (born May 20, 1994) is a Danish actor. He is mainly known for the role of Ivar the Boneless in the historical drama television series Vikings.
Born and raised in a small town south-west of Copenhagen, Andersen discovered his love for acting while studying drama at school. It was there he learned the basics of acting, including the discipline, focus, and teamwork needed to succeed in the business. Andersen participated in many musical oriented plays and was fortunate to gain a lot of experience with many big roles. Like his peers, he began auditioning for film roles. At age 17, Andersen realised the difference between live performances and acting in front of a camera. This encouraged him to pursue Film and Media Studies at the University of Copenhagen.
When he is not acting, Andersen enjoys spending much of his time focusing on photography. Considering himself a visually-minded person, he continues to learn more and more about cameras due to his experience shooting and directing short films. In addition, he learned dancing, singing, sports, fencing and stunts.
