Thor Kristjansson, birth name Þorvaldur Davíð Kristjánsson, is an Icelandic actor. Kristjansson was born in Reykjavík, and first found fame as the voice of Simba in the Icelandic language version of Disney’s Lion King. Subsequent voiceovers include appearances in Toy Story and Happy Feet. Kristjansson has performed in many of Iceland's most theaters, including The Icelandic National Theater and Reykjavik City Theater. He moved to New York in 2007 to pursue a BFA in The Juilliard School’s Drama Division, where he graduated in 2011 as a member of Group 40. His education was fully funded by scholarships and through the personal assistance of the Academy Award winner and former Juilliard alumni Robin Williams. Kristjansson had his first leading role, in the feature film Black's Game, a year after his graduation from The Juilliard School. When Black's Game opened in Iceland it became the biggest box office hit in 2012 and the 2nd-highest-grossing Icelandic movie in history. Kristjansson is based in Reykjavik and Los Angeles and is currently represented by Creative Artists Agency and Untitled Entertainment.
