She will be one of the big ones. A one of a kind who can bring out a special poetry in front of the camera. But also a person who places huge demands on herself. A scene has to be replayed so many times and twisted in so many directions that there is hardly any time to get the film done in time. If you ask about an interview at the PR company, the answer is that “it will probably be a ‘no thank you’, because she is not much for talking to the press”. Not even if Frederikke Dahl Hansen, after many years as the underground’s most promising star at the age of 28, finally has her first leading role in a major feature film. She portrays the best-selling author Leonora Christina Skov in Puk Grastens ‘Den, der lever stille’.

“This Retailer’s Lifeblood Was Cheap Plastic Toys. Now It Wants to Switch to Wood. Variety-store chain Flying Tiger Copenhagen has grown rapidly across Europe by offering an eclectic mix of cheap toys, gadgets and household items that are often made of plastic. Typical items include a remote-controlled dinosaur for roughly $19, a set of six stick-on mustaches for $4 or a pair of fluffy unicorn slippers for $13. This Christmas season, shoppers in the Danish capital could see the change in approach, with new wooden versions of chess, backgammon and four-in-a-row on sale in stores alongside older plastic versions of the same games. The two versions won’t coexist for long. “There’s no scenario where this product is in the stores in about a year,” said Martin Jermiin, Flying Tiger Copenhagen’s chief executive, referring to the plastic edition of four-in-a-row.”

“Once I am done as managing director, I have this dream of becoming a team manager for the first team. It will be great to wash and hang up the uniforms and generally make sure the boys are comfortable. I would love to have a spare time job like that in my older days.”

“Over 200 significant Danes contribute to a new publication that celebrates the Danish language.
What happens when you ask a large number of Denmark’s most interesting voices to interpret a word that means something special to them? That question is the starting point for ORD, and the result is a wild and experimental collection of texts and artworks that are as diverse as the actors themselves.”
You don’t need to squint at far-flung galaxies to be blown away by otherworldly beauty – it’s actually all around us, if you know where to look.
