N°92 Renate ReinsveNú Ninja Helga Mjöll
Born in Norway, Renate Reinsve is an actress best known for her roles in Oslo, August 31st, and The Worst Person in the World. Reinsve started her acting career at a young age acting at a local theatre in Solbergelva. She used theatre as a form of escape because of her traumatic childhood. Since she was 16 she has suffered with PTSD for undisclosed reasons. It was around that time too that Reinsve stopped going to school and left her hometown. She moved to Edinburgh where she stayed in a hostel and got a job working at a bar.
Later, Reinsve returned to Norway where she studied at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. It was soon after that she got her film debut in Oslo, August 31st directed by fellow Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier. She only had two lines in the film but impressed Trier immensely that he invited her to star in his 2021 film The Worst Person in the World as Julie. Before that however, Reinsve found success in Norway’s theatre scene as she felt tired of her film and television roles.
In addition to her acting career, Reinsve found a great interest in handy work and house renovations after buying a house in Oslo. She even took it as far to enrol into a carpentry program. Before that could happen though, Trier called to offer her the main role in his new film. She agreed and the film has become a global success. The film got Reinsve a Cannes Film Festival award for Best Actress and a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
The Worst Person in the World premiered in theatres in Spain last friday (March 11th). Highly recommended!
