Grabol

The Killing actress traded the TV screen for the theatre stage this year as she made her English language stage debut in the critical acclaimed James Plays at the Edinburgh International Festival from playwright Rona Munro. The trilogy of plays focused on the three James kings of Scotland, in which Gråbøl played Queen Margaret of Denmark, the wife of James III in James III; The True Mirror.

Although she was starring alongside Games Of Thrones star Jamie Sives, Gråbøl was the name on everyone’s lips as she stunned audiences and critics alike with her resolute and confident performance as the highly intelligent Margaret. As well as the James Plays, Gråbøl also appeared in the gripping psychological thriller The Hour of The Lynx and she also managed to swear live on BBC Radio 2! A true detective.
