Ralf Moeller in 2016
|Years active||Bodybuilding (1976–91)|
Ralf Rudolf Moeller (born 12 January 1959) is a German actor and former competitive bodybuilder. He is known for his roles of Brick Bardo in Cyborg, Kjartan in The Viking Sagas, the title character in the television show Conan the Adventurer, Hagen in Gladiator, Thorak in The Scorpion King and Ulfar in Pathfinder.
He began bodybuilding at age 17 and was the German Champion by 1984. He competed in the 1988 Mr. Olympia alongside Lee Haney, Shawn Ray and others. He is one of the tallest bodybuilding champions to date standing at 1.96 m (6 ft 5 in), weighing 131 kilos (288 lbs) in 1988.
Möller entered his movie career in 1989 with the film Cyborg. In 1992, he appeared in Universal Soldier with Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme. In 1993 he played the villain Brakus opposite Phillip Rhee and Eric Roberts in Best of the Best 2. Around this time he took a major neck injury in Las Vagas and had to undergo months of physiotherapy and was lucky to survive. The injury came as a result of engaging in martial arts competitions where he held his title for many years until his defeat and neck injury. After this the competitions ceased and Ralf moved from the area retiring from all martial arts as he felt lucky to have survived. His two biggest mainstream film roles to date are Ridley Scott's Gladiator, and 2002's The Scorpion King. Besides these two movies, he has played the leading character in The Viking Sagas, and Conan the Barbarian in the TV-series Conan. The show aired in 1997–1998 with the premise that Conan, and his three sidekicks, were chosen by the god Crom to fight and vanquish the evil Hissah Zul and become king.
