Sidse Babett Knudsen is a Danish actress. She studied for six years at the Jacques Lecoq International School of Theatre and Mime and at the School of the Shadow Theatre in Paris. Back in Denmark, she went on stage in the play Peer Gynt, created by one of her friends. She did several plays before finally landing her first film role in the movie Let's Get Lost in 1997.
Recognized by the critics, this improv comedy won her the Robert Award and the Bodil Award (equivalent of the Césars) for Best Actress. Her fame crosses borders in 2006 when she participates in the film After the Wedding, but the consecration comes only in 2010 when she lands the lead role in the series Borgen which has a wide critical and public success internationally. This success and her fluency in French and English opened the doors of British and French cinema.
