Mads Mikkelsen is a Danish actor and cast member of Death Stranding. He portrays the unidentified soldier, a character confirmed to be an antagonistic rival figure in the game. However, Mikkelsen has pointed out that, "The characters are very dualistic in [Kojima's] games: There is no such thing as a bad guy or a good guy in his games."
In an interview with Birth.Movies.Death., Mikkelsen revealed that though he understands some of Death Stranding's intended message, much of what Hideo Kojima has told him regarding the game still puzzles him. He has described Death Stranding as a "labyrinthine game" of which he has seen nothing like before, with a story "completely out of this world".
