Trine Dyrholm is one of Denmark's most famous and successful actresses as well as an accomplished singer-songwriter. Dyrholm spent her youth performing with a local Danish orchestra and became a household name in 1987 when her group, Trine & The Moonlighters, took third place in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. The annual competition, which determines Denmark's entry into the long-running "Eurovision Song Contest," launched Dyrholm's career as an entertainer and ignited her interest in acting. She won praise for her film debut in the romantic drama "Springflod" as Pauline, an innocent country girl who falls in love with a reckless city boy, after which she enrolled in the Danish National School of Theater. In 1998 she landed a breakout role as a bewildered hotel maid in the caustic family drama "The Celebration," the first film created under the strict rules of Dogme 95; and won acclaim for her role as a tortured miracle worker in "In Your Hands," which commemorated the tenth anniversary of the influential Danish film movement. Since then she's lent her voice to several episodes of the animated TV series "The Fairytaler," based on author Hans Christian Anderson's classic children's stories; portrayed a spiteful beauty shop owner in the melodramatic love story "En Soap"; and broken through to international audiences with her role as a bitter wife and mother in the Oscar-winning drama "In a Better World."
