Lise Aagaard Knudsen

I have acted since I was a little girl, and after studying in Copenhagen, Bergen and New York, I moved to London to complete my training at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Here I graduated as Master of Arts in Acting in 2014.

I am fluent in English, Danish and Norwegian and perform in these three languages with ease. I also speak French on a household basis. I have performed internationally – among other places in the UK, Sweden, USA, Norway, Cuba, Italy, and Belarus. Now I mainly work in Scandinavia and England.


MA in Acting, Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, United-Kingdom: 2013-2014.


MA in Theatre & Performance Studies, University of Copenhagen, Denmark/United-Kingdom: 2012-2015.

BA in Theatre Studies, University of Copenhagen & University of Bergen, Denmark/Norway: 2009-2012.
