27 August 1953
(m. 1989; div. 2006)
Stormare was born in Kumla in Örebro County, Sweden. Soon after, his family moved to Arbrå, Gävleborg County. He changed his surname when he discovered he shared it with a senior student at an acting academy. Like "storm" (which has the same meaning in Swedish and English), stormare is a Swedish word meaning "stormer". Before settling on Stormare, he briefly contemplated changing his name to Retep Mrots, which is "Peter Storm" backwards.
Stormare voiced Mattias Nilsson in the video games Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction and Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, Isair in the computer game Icewind Dale 2, and Johann Strauss in Quake 4. In February 2006, he starred as Wolfgang in Volkswagen's VDub series of television commercials. He played the main character in the film Svartvattnet, which was filmed in Sweden and Norway in 2007. He was offered a role in the ABC television series Lost for a period of one year, which he declined. In the 2007 film Premonition, he played Dr. Roth. In April 2007, he appeared in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode "Ending Happy".
In 2015, Stormare voiced and motion-captured the character Dr. Alan Hill in the video game Until Dawn. In 2016, he played Rutger Burlin in the Swedish television series Midnattssol; he also co-created, and starred as Ingmar in, the web television series Swedish Dicks, which was renewed for a second season in October 2016. In 2017, he played a minor role in John Wick: Chapter 2 and the part of Czernobog on the Starz series American Gods. He played the vampire Godbrand in the Netflix animated series Castlevania. In 2019 he appeared in the music video of the song "Graven" by the U.S. death metal band Possessed.
After Bono of U2 heard some of Stormare's music, he encouraged Stormare to make an album. In 2002, Stormare released his first album, Dallerpölsa och småfåglar. He plays in a band called Blonde from Fargo and runs a record label called StormVox.
Stormare divides his time between the United States and Sweden. He married actress Karen Sillas in 1989; they divorced in 2006. He married Toshimi, a native of Japan, in 2008. Their daughter Kaiya Bella Luna Stormare was born on May 9, 2009. Stormare currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter.
Stormare is a Christian and has said that he has had contact with God. When he was young, he participated in Baptist meetings in Arbrå. He has a strong spiritual side, inherited from his mother, who he has said was a medium, and who supposedly inherited that ability from her own father.
