Viggo Mortensen joins Òmnium Cultural, Catalunya pro-vote organisation
11 May 2018 @ 18:14

LORD of the Rings actor Viggo Mortensen has joined the Catalunya culture, language and civil rights society Òmnium Cultural, whose leader, Jordi Cuixart, is one of a number of the region's top-ranking politicians in jail over the disputed independence referendum.

Mortensen, 59, born in New York to a Danish father and half-Canadian, half-US mother, is the latest and among the most famous of Òmnium Cultural's 115,000 members.

The actor, who played Aragorn in the epic fantasy series based upon Tolkien's bestselling series of novels, also signed up a year ago to the manifesto Let catalanes vote.

Òmnium Cultural fights to preserve the unique language and social culture of Catalunya, but goes a step further in pushing for its right to vote on whether or not to become an independent nation, something it strongly supports.
