by Annika Pham
The Norwegian Film Institute and Swedish Film Institute have announced the names of their 2006 Shooting Stars which will attend the upcoming Berlin Film Festival as part of the Shooting Star event organised by the MEDIA Programme’s European Film Promotion between February 11 and 3, 2006.
30 year old Ane Dahl Torp seen in Torun Lian’s The Colour of Milk and Alexander Eik’s The Woman In My Life is the Norwegian candidate. She is considered one of the most promising young talents on Norwegian theatre stages today as well as one of Norway’s new stars on screen. In 2006, she will appear in Hans Petter Moland’s High School Teacher, in Stefan Faldbakken’s Restless and in the Swedish film by Håkan Bjerking Rotlös (Rootless).
The Swedish Shooting Star candidate is the 32-year-old Eva Röse who is the lead actress in the highly anticipated Swedish film Storm by the duo Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein which was a hot title on Trust Film Sales line-up at the last AFM. Just like Ane Dahl Torp, Eva splits her acting career between the stage and small and big screen. In 1998, after graduating from Stockholm’s Theatre High School she spent a few years at the Dramaten Theatre and joined Stockholm’s Stadteater in 2002 where she performed in Uncle Vanja and A Cat On a Hot Tin Roof.
For the cinema, Eva has played in a dozen films including Josef Fares’ Kopps, Thomas Vinterberg’s first Danish language film The Greatest Heroes, the Finnish film by Lenka Hellstedt Me and Morrison and the Norwegian film by Pål Øie Villmark. She also had a small part in Steven Spielberg’s Munich and is currently busy filming the Norwegian film Mirakel by Thomas Redan.
During Berlin’s Shooting Star event, both actresses will be able to meet casting agents and the international press, and they will receive the ‘Studio Hamburg’s Shooting Star Award’ from the director of the Berlin Film Festival Dieter Kosslick.
