mynewsdesk.com – Actor Joel Kinnaman is no stranger to the fight against the child sex industry. His successful career, particularly his role as Detective Stephen Holder in the acclaimed AMC/Netflix series The Killing, has given him insight to the harsh realities of the child sex industry.

“There are few things that I find more horrifying and devastating, than kids being bought and sold for sexual purposes. If I can contribute to children’s rights in this way, I will do my very best,” says Kinnaman.

He previously worked with ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) on a global campaign against child trafficking and is now stepping up as the organization’s Goodwill Ambassador.

His first appearance will be on August 1, 2014 at an event in Visby, Sweden. This small, bucolic island recently started the largest trial in its history – two suspects are charged with abusing numerous girls in a large scale sex case.

“Joel comes highly suited for this role. He will amplify the message that commercial sexual exploitation of children is a global problem and that no community, regardless of geography, or culture, is immune to its abuse of children’s rights. I’m very happy for his strong commitment to make a difference,” says ECPAT Sweden’s Executive Director Anders L. Pettersson.

About ECPAT: ECPAT International is a global network of organisations working together for the elimination of child prostitution, child pornography and the trafficking of children for sexual purposes. It seeks to ensure that children everywhere enjoy their fundamental rights free and secure from all forms of commercial sexual exploitation.

Joel Kinnaman was 10 years old the day he soured on fame. He was the goalkeeper on his youth soccer team in Sweden and had just allowed the opposing team to score. “I was so pissed at myself,” he recalls. The whole stadium started chanting a name, but it was not his—not exactly. It was his television alter ego’s. Kinnaman spent the previous year acting on a Swedish soap, and in a country with only two television channels, he’d become something of a star. “I was so embarrassed,” he says. “And I felt, this is wrong.”

After that, Kinnaman took a long break from acting. He spent his twenties working jobs in construction, insurance, a bar in the French Alps and a factory in Norway. He’d work double night shifts for months in order to take off and travel for four or five months at a time—alone. As one of six children—and the only boy—Kinnaman says he’d always had trouble being by himself and saw that “as a weakness” (though he admits he’d occasionally give in and “find a girl” to travel with). “For a long time, I had a life aside from acting,” he says. “I lived my life. I had my heart broken and loved again before any of this happened.” (His new love is actress Olivia Munn, by the way.)

But traveling the world is a younger man’s sport, and in 2005 Kinnaman returned to Sweden to study acting at the Swedish Academic School of Drama. Following a number of high-profile roles back home, Kinnaman, now 32, has become a fan favorite in the States for his portrayal of badass cop Stephen Holder on AMC’s The Killing, and for small but memorable parts in thrillers The Darkest Hour and Safe House.

Next he re-creates an iconic ’80s cyborg in the highly anticipated remake of RoboCop, alongside Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson. To keep himself grounded, so to speak, with the Hollywood of it all, he’s taken up the local pastime: surfing. “When I catch that wave, I feel like, I’m doing it!” he says. “Nothing is more powerful than the ocean.” Not even fame.
