"Born on January 17th, 1902, in Copenhagen, Nils Asther is Swedish and was brought up in Malmo, Sweden. His parents were welathy and wanted him to enter the diplomatic service, but he preferred the stage and made his debut in Copenhagen. Here he attracted the attention of the late Mauritz Stiller, who gave him the leading role in one of his films. He won much popularity in Continental pictures before going to Hollywood in 1926. His latest talkies include Madame Spy, Behold We Love and The Right to Romance. His first British picture is Abdul Hamid for B.I.P."
