Max Rhyser (born July 11, 1982) is a Danish-American-Israeli model, stage, television and film actor.
Rhyser was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands to a Danish father and American-Israeli mother. Throughout his boyhood he moved often with his family around Europe because of his father prone to following the new career paths every few years. When he was 10 his family moved to Paris and when he was 15 they moved to Denmark. Every time his family moved Rhyser would join the local school theatre company. He is fluent and conversational in English, Dutch, French and Danish.
Rhyser's older brother, also an actor but primarily in the European market, paved the way for him. His professional career began at the age of 18 as a stage actor in Amsterdam. Rhyser started his television and film career in 2005 when he signed with Q Management as a model. His first acting role was as a guest-star in BBC sitcom My Hero. In 2007 he appeared in a film A Four Letter Word. He also starred in a short films Heads and Tails, Requited and The Teacher. Rhyser breakthrough film was Homeland, where he played Kobi Zucker an Israeli looking to start fresh in New York City who falls in love with a young Palestinian woman. He also appeared in 2010 Violet Tendencies. His next movie is The Genesis of Lincoln. Rhyser also works as a stage actor.
2009-2011 found Mr. Rhyser's career populated with several short films: Heads And Tails, Dawn, The Teacher, A Fallen Glass, Scotch, The Walk Home, Requited, The Lair, and Decent Men. 2010's Violent Tendencies was a feature-length opportunity for a resurrection of his character "Long John" from A Four Letter Word. In Between Men (2010–2011) is a web series in which Rhyser played a lead character in a group of gay friends in New York. The series' ten-minute format and millennial mentality has been nonetheless compared to gay LGBTQ high-water mark Queer as Folk, and has so far received lackluster notoriety and critical reception. The series is available for free on YouTube and has garnered a substantial cult following. May 2012 saw the release of The Genesis of Lincoln, and yet another feature-length film, Chaser, is currently filming and entering production. Rhyser also works as a stage actor. 2014 starred along Robert MacNaughton and Ashton Leigh in the Damien Leone Indie Horrorfilm Frankenstein vs. The Mummy.
