80-year-old Lone Hertz: - I need still to make money

She had barely begun to speak before she began to sing, and she was not more than four-five years old when she started performing.

Since she was quite small, the theatre and spectacle has been a part of her dna and is a favorite playtime in a sometimes rough everyday life. 23. april fills Lone Hertz 80 years.

She is one of the living Danish actresses that has had the longest career in the performing arts. As a youngster, she played together with the big heavyweights like Dirch Passer, Clara Pontoppidan and Lily Broberg.

- Many young people come today and ask me: 'Is it true that you have taken the and the? And can't you tell a little bit about them?' Then you become a bit of a walking encyclopedia, a kind of theatre history, says Lone Hertz and smiles.

When she as a child on his grandmother's call was absorbed at The Royal Danish Theatre ballet school, it was the beginning of a lifelong love for the performing arts.

- I went there between all the gold at The Royal Theatre with velourtæpper and scents and all the great artists, she remembers.

however, It was not the ballet, but the spectacle that was the Lone Hertz' fate.

As a 10-year-old, she was selected to play in the Kaj Munk's "the Word". At The Royal Theatre had found out that Lone Hertz could something that was rarely seen in such young children - she couldn't just act but also say lines.

It was a very big and important barnerolle, and I played along with Poul Reumert and Ebbe Rode. It was Lily Broberg debut. It was amazing to be on stage with these big stars, she remembers.

Poul Reumert played Lone Hertz' the grandfather in the piece.

One evening, as I sat on the lap of him, he said 'Little Lone, you must be an actor, when you become big', tells Lone Hertz.

- He was the king, he was emperor, he was God, and there was much authority, so I sat there and nodded, 'Yes, mr. Reumert, it must I'.

And so it was. Lone Hertz played both the theatre and in children's films, and the spectacle became a bigger and bigger part of her life.

She was in the middle of high school when she got the offer of a contract with the legendary ABC Theatre, as blix had made to the city's leading comedy and revue.

Both her father and the rector cried when she volunteered out of high school to pursue his career. But Lone Hertz was confident in its case.

After five years at the ABC Theatre, where she along the way had one son, Steen Stig Pockets with the theatre director, she was ready for new challenges.

My expertise is not new, but the more dramatic performances, says Lone Hertz, who really got his break on the teaterscenen with its role of Hedvig in Henrik Ibsen's 'the wild duck'and Nora in 'A dolls house'.

Although many will remember her from her role as Miss Nitouche in the film of the same name, where she played together with Dirch Passer, is it not a role, she even likes to highlight.

- I am grateful for the role, but it was a ungpigerolle, as any actor should be able to play. It meant something to me, for it made me a household name, and it is also the, I'm going to survive.

- Some survive as the Matador, I survive as Mlle Nitouche. It meant something as a stepping stone, but it was not of any great artistic task, she says.

Life came, however, to change dramatically for Lone Hertz, when she in 1966 became a mother for the second time. The son, Tomas, who she had with actor Axel Strøbye, received namely a brain injury in his first year of life because of a vaccine.

My life was turned around. Life as an actress and life as a mother to a disabled person were two incompatible worlds. I felt like I was living a double life.

In the beginning was the theatre a space for Lone Hertz, but after some years it was a strain to try to get privacy to go up with skuespillergerningen.

I lived a completely different life than my colleagues, when I was not on the scene. I had the big problems I had to solve because of my disabled son, and I was in a permanent sorgtilstand, she explains.

At last she pulled herself from the scene and was, together with actress Malene Schwartz director of first Bristol, the Theatre and afterwards Aveny Teatret, where she also served as an instructor, before she from 1984 and for six years held the post of rector of the national theatre School.

in Parallel made Lone Hertz movie 'Tomas - a child you can't reach' of his son. The she got a Bodilpris.

When she resigned as rector, she spent two years writing a book about being a family for a disabled person.

It is not only the disabled, suffering. It has Lone Hertz, who in addition to his two sons also have daughters Micaëla Strøbye and Maria Lindhardt, learned.

- All lose something. It is the whole family that will be affected, she says.

the Book was to provide a springboard for the service, which for many years has paid Lone Hertz' bills and living expenses.

Here she talks about both social policy, handicaplivet, faith and his own life and work as actress.

A work she again came in time, when she in 2007 was offered a role in the play 'Doubt'.

- It was a marvel to be allowed to play the theatre again. I have always been an actor, and it felt amazing to stand on stage again, tells Lone Hertz.

At the moment is the actress on tour with the show 'Meet me on Cassiopeia', for although she has reached an age where no one would blame her to slow down, so is the love to the theatre something of it that keeps her going.

Theatre is my passion. Otherwise I would not be able to lug myself into it night after night, she says.

When one day she must curtsy for the last time on the stage, however, there is a large project that is waiting for her.

- I have experienced so many things, and I would like to write a book about it at a time. But I know that it will take me some years, and right now I need still to make money. I intend to be old, " she says, and smiles.

Actually there is a lot she still needs to achieve.

Immediately, I must say that I do not have the time to let go of this here land, there are too many tasks that are unresolved and still require something of me.

- Therefore, I can not allow myself to die. I have too much, I can't leave, says Lone Hertz.
