More about Sigmund Sæverud

Sigmund Sæverud won The Hedda Award 2014 in the best supporting actor category for the role of Lucky in Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett, directed by Bjørn Sundquist, produced by The Norwegian Touring Theatre and The Norwegian Theatre.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"This year's supporting actor is a very experienced actor who has been part of most of it. In its time he took part in establishing one of our regional theatres, and the experiences he there made in creating theatre that is understandable for others than those in-the-know, he has brought with him to the full in this performance.

To make characters from the theatre of the absurd clear and intelligible is a great challenge, one that this year's award winner masters extremely well. His performance of the monologue in which the withheld is suddenly visible, and in which the silent person who is apparently without substance all of a sudden seems a whole person, is a whole little production in itself.

This year's best supporting actor award goes to Sigmund Sæverud."
