Biography

An accomplished actress and director, Paprika Steen is renowned for her extensive Danish film and television work. Blonde, beautiful and remarkably prolific, Steen kicked off her screen career in earnest during the mid-1990s, finding recurring TV roles in her homeland. Later in the decade, she became aligned with the naturalistic Dogme 95 film movement, most notably turning up in a featured role in Thomas Vinterberg's barbed drama "The Celebration" (1998). In 2002, Steen solidified her status as a significant Danish screen presence with the dramas "Okay" and "Open Hearts," and, two years later, she made her directorial debut with the lauded tragedy "Aftermath" (2004). She returned to helming duties with the dark comedy "With Your Permission" (2007), and remained busy, notably appearing in the romantic comedy "Love Is All You Need" (2012). Consistently acclaimed for her performances, Steen has garnered the reputation of being the Danish counterpart to Meryl Streep.
