Actor Mikael Persbrandt has been sentenced to five months in jail for buying cocaine.
The Swedish star, who played Beorn in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, was charged alongside 10 others after his details were found in a drug dealer’s phone last year.
At the District Court of Stockholm on Tuesday, he was found guilty of buying 12 grams of cocaine and handed a five-month custodial sentence.
The 50 year old had denied the allegations, with his lawyer arguing that someone else had used his phone at a party.
Persbrandt is waiting to hear if he has the right to appeal.
