Actress. A longtime star of the Danish stage and screen, she is remembered as Anne Petersdotter, a pastor's wife accused of divination in Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1943 classic "Day of Wrath". Raised in Odense, she originally trained as a laboratory technician then in 1939 was accepted into the Royal Theatre School; admitted to the Theatre's company upon her 1941 graduation she began appearing on stage and taking some small parts on the silver screen. In 1943 she landed the role of Anne which was to essentially define her career then in 1945 married director Lau Lauritzen (1910-1977) and that same year starred in her new husband's war drama "Red Meadows". Lisbeth later joined the Det Ny Teater then in 1950 began freelancing, over the rest of her time before the public alternating work with intermittant retirements to raise her three children. She had a hit at the Det Ny in 1953 as Anne Boleyn in Kaj Munk's "Cant", was elected as a Conservative to the Horsholm City Council in 1960, and thru the 1960s gradually took on co-directing assignments with Lauritzen. Lisbeth earned praise onstage in Noel Coward's "Waiting in the Wings" and Edward Albee's "A Delicate Balance" and continued her film work, her assignments evolving with the passage of time. Last seen onscreen as a widow in 1987's "Babette's Feast", she lived out her days in Hillerod where she died of the effects of advanced age. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
