German actor Louis Hofmann is currently starring in Netflix original German series Dark, but has also just dropped trou while on a Ralph Fiennes project, The White Crow. Which, also being a ballet thriller, we imagine is Black Swan’s better-behaved sister.

The true story drama from Fiennes (best known for his role as Fred Waterford in Handmaid’s Tale), sees a  young Rudolf Nureyev become a top ballet dancer in Russia, but after a life-changing visit to Paris, he soon seeks asylum in France.

Hofmann plays one of Rudolf’s lovers, Teja Kremke, who he reportedly dated in 1959. If – by chance – you’re actually interested in seeing the film, check out the trailer:
