The movie Rocky IV turned Dolph Lundgren aka Soviet boxer Ivan Drago into a Hollywood star. Exactly 30 years later the Fulbrighter Dolph Lundgren shares his personal fight worth fighting with a live audience at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. “If you heal yourself you can heal others” is the message of this surprising TEDxFulbright talk about a fighter who became a social activist.
Best known for his performance in Rocky IV as Ivan Drago, Dolph has starred in over 50 films. He was awarded a Fulbright to MIT after graduating at the head of his class in chemical engineering at the Royal Inst. of Technology in Stockholm. He also completed an exchange program with the University of Sydney.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
The journey Dolph is on is great, he has been given a perspective that compels him to attempt to help other. I can only pray that Jesus is in his life and if not soon will be. For those who read this who are Christians Please send a pray towards Dolph. All praise and glory is to God our Father and our Kinsmen redeemer and lord and King Christ Jesus.
Most people have no idea how smart Lundgren is, which is understandable if you've just seen him in movies :P He was a great student at a esteemed Swedish university, and if not for the Rockymovies, he would most likely be a doctor (phd) in one of the sciences.
Amazing!!! Thank you Mr. Lundgren for sharing and I too have had a very similar past and as well similar present on how I have learned through therapy and Tony Robbins, Brene' Brown to realize my past pains lies within them my life's greatest gifts. Soon we will meet, I'm sure of it! :)
Wow...I don't judge people because I haven't walk in their shoes. Thank you for sharing your story. Beauty comes from everywhere and everything. To take your life and make the best of all you've had to deal with is a testament to the will of the human experience and the strength we possess inside.
Nice to see this transformation in you, Dolph. I knew you back in those days in the 80s. You stayed at the St James's on Sunset and I always got the order to take your BMW around and get things serviced on it. You were such an imposing dude that I found it hard to talk with you. I just thought you were super focused on training and doing this part or that part. I had no idea you were stuck in this dark secret place. I ran across this YouTube of you doing this TED talk and the story of abuse in your life as a kid. It explained a lot to me why you always came off as distant person. We worked with many celebs and I was always able to find the regular person in which I could talk with, but with you, it was tough. Dude, I'm so sorry you went through this stuff. I had no idea of your life story, the good and bad. To see you in this healed space and time; in asking and granting forgiveness to yourself and from those whom you love, ... and the wholeness of reconciliation, I have to tell you how pleased I am for you. Blessing to you and the new work that you do. All the best!. ---- Jon , Yosemite, CA
He says "girl", and we should know the whole deal. And, folks, he said "girl" NOW. So has he really healed, or is he just jumping on the TED paywagon? You know. He says "kids" about his children/family. No healing implicit here; profit.
What an amazing and humble person. I am happy I watched this video, I remember reading that Dolph Lundgren is very intelligent and studied at MIT however I was not familiar with his personal life and home life and that he has made significant efforts to end human trafficking. I would be honored to sit and have a beer with him.
I always tease my younger daughter that her "Real" father is Dolph Lundgren. She is blonde, attractive & very tall- I am neither tall nor blonde, attractive is subjective...it is always good for a laugh- but the flip side is she is very, very intelligent, witty and has a magnetic personality. Maybe, just maybe, they are related, lol!
Honestly, I remember seeing Dolph Lundgren in magazines, and TV entertainment shows in the 80's as a teen, and from that, I was aware that he dated Grade Jones & acted in the action-type movies I've never really had any interest in. However, from his TEDx Talk here, I am so very impressed with this gentleman, and I had no idea of what an accomplished scholar he was. While saddened to hear of the painful, abusive childhood he suffered at the hands of his father, he certainly did clearly rise above it to become a seemingly strong, yet sensitive, thoughtful & kind, good man. I'm now interested in checking out some of his movies. Either way, I'm definitely a new fan!
This guy is highly educated what an amazing honest bloke, always liked his movies however the movies are movies most of his good ones not much talking lots of people being blown up, interesting he studied in Sydney something else interesting as I am an Aussie, this guy I never really knew though how smart he was , you can actually see the brain power aura emanating from him
My mom would beat me so bad. I'd stand still and she would beat until I moved or if I moved at the start she would beat until I could moving and gave her a target to get her anger issues settled. I couldn't win.
What a great guy. I never knew that he was an abused child. I can't imagine going through that. So glad he has healed and forgiven (it would be very hard for me to forgive that!) and is now helping others.
bravo sir!! I respect you and admire you for your courage and your heart. You fought battles that no one else can fight and for that you made me realize that i was fighting a hopeless battle with myself. thank you
Something stood out about Dolph's abuse. He mentions that he was picked on by his dad, but not his siblings. 1:14. That, I think, would be most dificult for me, to know that I'm abused but my siblings do not. Why would he (and his mom) be picked on?
