Stine Olsen Hair up main - The Team

Stine Olsen attained a BA (Hons.) degree in Drama and Theatre Studies at the University of Kent at Canterbury and went out to gain some “real life” experience before taking a postgraduate diploma in Acting and Musical Theatre at Mountview Theatre School in London (now the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts).  She has appeared on stage at the National Theatre in Stephen Daldry’s production of An Inspector Calls and has done voice-over work in both Danish and English.  She works regularly with groups of independent short-film makers to refine her camera acting skills and has taken lead roles as well as interesting small roles, including a leading role played in German, which was a fresh challenge.  Another passion is for dance, especially Egyptian Raqs Sharki, which she practices and performs on a skilled, but mostly amateur basis.  Scheduled will be her first film performance acting in her native Danish.  A selection of her performances can be seen on her website:
