Birgitte Hjort Sørensen's quotes

  • For me, art is like a big support group, where you go and meet people who think the same way, and you go, 'Okay, I'm not nuts.'
  • When I approach any script, I always try to find what I would relate to most in it.
  • I was a good student - a geek, really - editor of the school paper, thought I was going to go to university.
  • Any director or writer or artist has the right to do what they want to do - freedom of expression is something I celebrate.
  • I ride my bike past the Danish Parliament, and it's very accessible - there's really no security!
  • I'd love to play a villain in BBC drama 'Sherlock' - some sort of evil, slinky blonde would be right up my street.
  • Singing and dancing are the greatest emotional outlets you can have.
  • After 'Pitch Perfect' premiered, I've got so many sweet expressions from people who enjoyed 'Pitch Perfect' and now the episode of 'Game of Thrones.'
  • The thing with drama is you're allowed to invent people who are maybe slightly better than real people.
  • It's the prerogative of the writer to rewrite the world into one he would like to exist.
  • I've done so much travelling in the past few years, and when you travel, you realise that we do actually have a cool, clean look in Scandinavia - it's not just Denmark - which I think brings peace if you have it in your home.
  • I used to watch a lot of American and British television as a child, which helped teach me the language and accents; it was partly that which landed me the part of Roxy in a London production of 'Chicago' when I was 25.
  • At some point, they must do a 'Borgen' tour in Copenhagen. Like the 'Sex and the City' tour, but on bicycles.
  • I've tried to pitch 'Borgen - the Musical,' but they just won't listen to me!
  • Don't worry about not fitting in. The things that make people think you're weird are what makes you you, and therefore your greatest strength.
  • In the U.K., journalists are a little bit more ruthless than in Denmark. I have a feeling the tabloid press in the U.K. is pretty harsh.
  • Whenever I have a few hours to dive into a book, I am happy.
  • Acting and singing were just a hobby, but getting into drama school made me realise I could actually do it for a living.
  • In film or TV work, you can have this amazingly dramatic pause, and they'll just edit it out.
  • 'Coriolanus' deals with the birth of democracy. And that has been fascinating because I've been talking about politics so much because of 'Borgen.' It's a nice bridge.
  • I adore Copenhagen, where I live, but I'm really drawn to New York.
  • I think one of the reasons 'Borgen' has such a following is because the characters are quite positive people.
  • Strong female leads make more of an impact in the U.K. than in Denmark.
  • I've been told that no one knows what happens in the future on 'Game of Thrones.' To my knowledge, I've shot one episode. So I'm as excited as anyone else to find out what happens.
  • Quite a lot of British women stop working when they have children, and that is rarely the case in Denmark. We have a very flat, structured way of approaching everything. Nobody's the boss. In a sense, we're all equal.
  • If you go for an audition, you have a character description, and for the women, it's always about being beautiful, sexy. And for the men it's more about the character than how he appears physically. That annoys me.
  • When I was starring as Roxie Hart in 'Chicago,' I got my stiletto heel caught in my fishnet tights and fell flat on my face. It was incredibly painful and not something you can cover up.
  • When I was a kid, my sisters and I used to get a little present in our stocking each day of December, usually an ornament, some sweets, or a little toy.
  • In many senses, 'Borgen' was a very democratic show. I was always invited to hear the writers' thoughts for the next episodes and allowed to comment on them.
  • In Copenhagen, we all ride bicycles everywhere, partly because it is impossible to park a car, but also because you can cross the city in 20 minutes on a bike.
