More about Preben Hodneland

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the best supporting actor award to Preben Hodneland:

"A supporting role can be decisive for the whole of a production. It can expand the picture and create contrasts to its main features. Such a role often affects the flow and the rhythm of the performance. It can make moods shift, and it can increase the understanding of the environment as well as the challenges the main characters meet. In the production for which the award is given, the award winner does all of this. The role he interprets is not big in size, but he has found room for diverse flourish and nuanced character depiction. He has combined merriment and solemnity at a swishing fast pace, and his entertainer talent reaches full score. He also sings and dances, and this with great confidence.

This year, the best supporting actor award goes to Preben Hodneland for The Book of Mormon."

Preben Hodneland was nominated for The Hedda Award 2020 in the best leading actor category for the title role in Raskolnikov, The Norwegian Theatre and Det Vestnorske Teateret (2019).
