Alexander Rybak, who performed the role of the fiddler, won The Hedda Award 2007 in the debut of the year category.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"Despite his young age - he recently celebrated his 21th birthday - the debut of the year winner already has won competitions, received awards, participated at festivals and toured in Norway and abroad. He still enters within the debut category, because he, until now, had not performed at theatre stages. That happened for the first time this winter, in a role in which he in addition to excelling musically also impressed and charmed his audience with his spontaneous joy in acting, and his incredible stage presence.

The debut of the year winner is Alexander Rybak, for his efforts as the Fiddler in Fiddler on the Roof at Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre), the spring of 2007."
