"COPENHAGEN. She was already Danish films queen."
"With the ”queen of Hearts” confirms Trine Dyrholm, 47, his position. The Danish-Swedish erotically charged familjedramat is lauded as the few movies in recent years. And after three weeks of great success in Denmark."
" the Movie is about power, familjehemligheter, sex, longing, existential loneliness. Simply all of these great substances that is life, " she says."
"We meet at Café Gavlen in Nørrebro, the city's hippest neighborhood, a little bit of Copenhagen's counterpart to the district of Södermalm in Stockholm. Trine Dyrholm is a regular at fiketu002Fbaren. "
"the Family apartment is located a block from there. When she is photographed outside, it is obvious that many people recognize her. But she doesn't seem to care. She is accustomed. Trine has been a superstar in Denmark since she was a teenager. More about it soon."
"For now, it is about ”queen of Hearts”. A Danish-Swedish film that has already won awards, both the movie itself and the Trine as an actress, at the film festivals in Sundance and Gothenburg. Trine and Magnus Krepper plays a married successful couple. "
"a 200,000 danes have seen the movie"
"He's a doctor, she a lawyer. When his 17-year-old son (Gustav Lindh) from a previous relationship moves in with them, ushering his wife to a relationship with him. One of the film's very realistic sex scenes between them, have attracted a lot of attention."
"the Trine tells us proudly that the film received the highest rating of almost all reviewers. To the been called ”a masterpiece of the Danish history of film”. But she was still a little worried."
"– You want to reach a large audience also. Now has over 200 000 had seen it. It feels like ”everyone” is talking about it. Every day I get letters from people; men, women, old, young, who seems very affected by the story. It asks questions about human nature, but gives no answers, it is very open for interpretation."
"When Trine was asked about the film, had the director May el-Toukhy and screenwriter Maren Louise Käehne just an idea for a film about a middle-aged woman who seduces her stepson, and the impact it will have. Trine said yes straight away, then she has been working with the duo in the past and think they are inspiring."
" We have seen ”The reader” with Kate Winslet. Bo Widerberg-film ”Lust and beauty great”. ”The manhood test”. But this was something new, we could tell from the woman's point of view and try to understand her."
"the Trine if talked about sexscenen"
"the Trine knew she would get a lot of questions about sexscenen."
"– It's there for an important reason, not to be speculative. It is brutal, perhaps too much, but becomes important as a subtext to what happens later in the story. Therefore, I wanted to be brave and do it."
"– Danish journalists also asked about the scene, though it is of course actually there are more shocking things in the film. For me it is a bit like making a stuntscen. It is drawn on a storyboard. You go from A to Z. Then do you put emotions in the midst of all of it. It is a crazy job sometimes, to be an actor..."
" People wonder if I have done something so wild and crazy in the past. In ”Daisy diamond” (2007), I wore a strap-on and pretended to have sex with Noomi Rapace. My role was just that, sexscenen, and to humiliate her in a monologue. A small but interesting job (laughter)."
"broke through as a 14-year-old"
"the lead role of Anne in ”queen of Hearts” really had all that Trine Dyrholm find challenging in a rollgestaltning."
"– I always look for the cracks in them I play. To open up and invite the audience into a person's inner chaos. Anne is a successful and idealistic lawyer who on paper has ”everything”. But she lacks something. And she is a person who betrays his own high ideals, you could say, without revealing too much."
"It is a role that is so far from the Trine Dyrholm, who became superstar in Denmark only 14 years old."
"She grew up in Odense, the country's third largest city. Both parents were teachers but also ran sångkörer that they toured with. The father was also a football star at the high level, just below the A-national team."
"the Third in the Danish eurovision song contest"
"the Trine grew up with music. Sang and played as a child. In the summers she participated in the HC Andersen plays at the city theatre. Played Charles Dickens 'A christmas carol' as 11-year-old. A year later she became a reporter for a children's programme in the radio. A song she wrote and performed for a friend, an adopted black girl who was, gained a lot of attention. "
"Kompositörenu002Fmusikern Frans Bak got in touch and offered her to sing in the Danish equivalent to the Eurovision song contest. She came third and gained a huge breakthrough. The song ”Danse of the måneskin” included in the Danish cultural canon."
"– In the two years I went to school in Odense in the weeks and toured with Frans Bak band during the weekends. Did the two discs. Then I did two movies. Won the award for one of them and the tv movie ”Cecilia” got a lot of attention. So when I, as a 19-year-old started at Statens teaterskole, I had in the audience's eyes have already become someone other than ”schlagersångerskan”."
"Had many great roles."
"Then followed by the group of Dr. Dante, where the other future and peers, the stars Sofie Gråbøl, Mads Mikkelsen, Kim Bodnia, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, Ulrich Thomsen and Paprika Steen also found. There searched filmskolans new directors, Thomas Vinterberg and Per Fly, to find new faces to be in front of the camera."
"After the Dogma movie ”the Celebration” and the tv series ”Taxi” at the end of the 1990s, it has rolled on, with one big role after another. ”A soap”, ”the Revenge”, ”A Royal affair”, ”Wedding in Italy”, ”A song from the heart”, ”Collective”, the tv series ”the Heirs”, ”Young Astrid” and ”X&Y” to name a few of the 60 roles."
"– There are still a few who remember me as the little teenage girl who sings, but... I've had many faces since that time."
"Along the way, she met her husband, tv-, film - and theater director Niclas Bendixen, 47, thirteen years ago."
"– He was a dancer before, since the choreographer, it was so we met, in the context of a musical theatre performance I and two other (Louise Mieritz, Tammi Øst) set up together."
"the Hippo is bigger than the queen"
"the Couple has a son, Axel, 10, together. He has not seen so many of my mother's movies, most of them have been x-rated."
"– It might feel strange to have a mom that your friends can see on movie posters or in the trailers. But Axel is more interested in becoming a scientist, someone who invents things. His parents were invited to kulturparty at the castle with the queen thought he was not so remarkable. However, I dubbed flodhästens voice in ”Madagascar”films, it was great."
" I have done two German and one Danish tv-series that will eventually. Hoping for a big film project in August. And after having done a couple of episodes behind the camera on ”the Heirs”, I want sometime to direct a movie, I have some ideas."
"Age: 47.nFamilj: Husband, Niclas Bendixen, 47, his son Axel, 10.nBor: Apartment in Copenhagen, summer house just outside.nAktuell: in the cinema in ”queen of Hearts”."
"... Magnus Krepper, who plays her husband in ”queen of Hearts”:n– His character is multilayered, not just the boring spouse. I love him as an actor. He is brave and he always looks to his characters as well as carry on a secret."
"... Gustav Lindh, styvsonen which Trines character has a relationship with:n– When May el-Toukhy found Gustav, we knew that it would work. He has such a vulnerability and such a depth. Very professional, brave and generous to work with. And so, he looks great in a little special way, he certainly has ”star quality”."
"... how much she listens to music now-a-days:n– I used to buy ten cds at a time. With Spotify, I have become more confused. Listen most to the radio when I'm driving. Florence & the Machine, Anna von Hausswolff, and Jenny Wilson are some of the favorites."
"... to play Mikael Persbrandts alter ego in Anna Odells ”X&Y”:n– A fun and a bit chaotic projects. I have always longed to play a man. Sofie Gråbøl recommended me to Anna Odell. After having done two films earlier with Persbrandt, it was easy to ”steal” his body language (she gets up, bröstar up and demonstrate very accurate Persbrandts style)."
"... to play against Michael Nyqvist (1960-2017), in one of his last roles in ”You disappear”:n– It was a year before he died, he was not sick then, so it came as a shock when he passed away. I am so grateful that I got to meet him. A great actor, a great man. We had a crazy sex scene and laughed all the time when we did it."
"... why she has worked with Lars von Trier:n– I was offered a role in the comedy ”Director for the hele”, but it crashed unfortunately when I played the ”Cat on a hot tin roof” at the theatre. He has been important for Danish film. Art is not just about that we should like things, he is good at confronting us. I am a big fan of all, ”Melancholia”, ”Dogville”, ”the Nymphomaniac” and the tv series ”Empire”."
