Caspar Phillipson is a Danish actor whose work has been largely in his native Denmark. His acting career started in the 1990s though he only became more active the following decade. He has had performances in the Danish films The Escape, Itsi Bitsi, and Sommeren ’92. After a couple more roles in Danish projects, he gained recognition for his portrayal of John F. Kennedy in the 2016 biographical drama film Jackie. The movie starred Natalie Portman in the lead role with Phillipson only having a screen time of about 10 minutes. Despite this, his uncanny resemblance to JFK led him to gain further attention in Hollywood.
