Herman Bernhoft won The Hedda Award in the category of best supporting actor in 2011, for the role of Osvald in Ibsen s Ghosts. The reason from the jury went as follows:
"This year's winner completed his education the spring of 2010, and the same autumn he made his debut in a rampant comedy. Thus he can be said to belong to the category 'until now relatively unknown young actor'.
The more exciting it is that he already has managed to provide a new and consistent interpretation of one of the most familiar characters of our classical repertoire, an original, physical interpretation clearly conveying why Ibsen chose to call his play Ghosts.
In tight and fateful interaction with Vivi Sunde's Mrs. Alving in Teatret Vårt (Our Theatre) in Molde, the winner of the year has created a modern, hungry for life, temperamental and extrovert, but also desperate and condemned Osvald.
The award for best supporting actor goes to Herman Bernhoft."
