    More about Trine Wiggen

    Trine Wiggen was employed at The National Stage and at Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) before she came to The National Theatre of Norway in 1998. Among other roles she has interpreted Fanny Wilton in Sebastian Hartmann's version of John Gabriel Borkman and Barbro in his Growth of the Soil. She played the title role in Jon Fosse's free translation of Racine's Phèdre at the Swedish Riksteatern.

    For her interpretation of Una in Blackbird she was nominated for the Hedda Award 2006 in the best actress category, and she was awarded the Gabler Prize from the newspaper Morgenbladet. She has acted in a number of movies, including An Enemy of the People, Varg Veum - Bitter Flowers, Kissed by Winter and The Man Who Loved Yngve.

    Trine Wiggen won The Hedda Award 2010 in the category of best leading actress for the title role in Valerie Solanas skal bli president i Amerika* (Valerie Jean Solanas is going to be the President of America) by Sara Stridsberg, The National Theatre of Norway, The Torshov Theatre. The jury reasoned as follows:

    "No matter if the role is a so-called 'leading character', or what is rather imprecisely referred to as a 'supporting character', it demands as much from the actor. The winner of the year knows all about this: At the theatre for which she has worked the past twelve years she has played the childhood friend of Hedda Gabler, a mouse in the forest, a woman who desperately seeks the explanation why she was betrayed and a bird mother, among many other roles, with the same conviction.

    She receives the award for her interpretation of a lonely and unhappy woman, a child of her time, in a desperately revolutionary riot against the overwhelming power of men, a role ranging from the violent and brutal breakups to near, vulnerable confidences.

    The award goes to Trine Wiggen for her unsentimental, but captivating presentation of the title role of Valerie Solanas skal bli president i Amerika* (Valerie Jean Solanas is going to be the President of America) at The Torshov Theatre, The National Theatre."

    She translated and directed Sam Shepherd's Fool for love for The National Theatre, with its premiere in 2011. The same year she performed the role of Emilia in Othello.

    A complete list of all of Trine Wiggen's roles at The National Theatre can be found in the theatre's database (Norwegian only).
