    More about Kirsti Stubø

    When Kirsti Stubø won The Hedda Award 2009, The Hedda jury reasoned as follows:

    "After completing her education at The National Academy of Theatre, this year's winner has, in two important theatres, given stage life to very different female characters, and she has also found the time to become a prize-awarded movie actress.

    She gets the award for her interpretation of a basically self-assured and aggressive young woman, who is, during a few fateful meetings, brought to the verge of a nervous breakdown. Brilliantly the award winner creates a live, credible psychological portrait of a passionate young woman in despair, the very eye of the storm in an otherwise downplayed and cool performance.

    The best supporting actress award goes to Kirsti Stubø for the role of Hermione in Andromache at The Norwegian Theatre the spring of 2009."

    In 2010 and 2011 she has been working for Stockholm City Theatre where she has, among other things, interpreted the role of Electra in Orestes and the title role of Emilia Galotti. She also has taken parts in movies, and during the international film festival in Moscow in 2007 she got the prestigious Best actress award for her effort in the film Opium.

    Kirsti Stubø was nominated for The Hedda Award 2012 in the category of best leading actress for the role of Lavinia Mannon in Mourning Becomes Electra, directed by Eirik Stubø,The Norwegian Theatre.

    Kirsti Stubø is married to director Eirik Stubø. Her maiden name was Refseth.
