Lise Aagaard Knudsen

I have always loved theatre, 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 also hold a degree as Master of Arts in Theatre and Performance Studies from University of Copenhagen.

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.
