‘The Killing’ Star Sofie Gråbøl To Lead Canneseries Jury

The Killing star Sofie Gråbøl is leading the Canneseries jury.

Gråbøl will be joined by Olivier Abbou, Amine Bouhafa, Alice Braga, Macarena García and Alix Poisson in the six-strong jury judging a strong competition lineup that includes the likes of Denmark’s Dark Horse, Euro co-pro This is Not Sweden and Beta Film’s Operation Sabre.

Multi-award-winner Gråbøl is best known as the star of Scandi noir smash The Killing, in which she played the role of police inspector Sarah Lund, which brought her international fame. Past credits include breakout Early Spring, Taxa and Nikolaj og Julie.

She is joined by Abbou, the director and producer of a number of series and movies including Madame Hollywood, Territories and Get In, along with Braga, the Brazilian actress who has starred in internationally-acclaimed City of God and Hollywood movies such as The Suicide Squad.

García, meanwhile, made her film debut with Pablo Berger in Blancanieves a movie for which she received the Silver Shell for Best Actress at the San Sebastián Film Festival, as well as the Goya Award for Best New Actress. Later on, she starred in titles such as El arte de volver directed by Pedro Collantes. Poisson has worked with Jean-Xavier de Lestrade on several movies and series. Bouhafa is a musician whose credits have included The Adventures of Paddington and Oscar-nominee Four Daughters.

Canneseries kicks off this Friday with Dark Horse, This is Not Sweden and Operation Sabre in competition alongside Living on a Razor’s Edge from Brazil, Dumbsday, Moresnet, The Zweiflers and To The Wonder.

Big shows out of competition premiering include Disney+’s Becoming Karl Lagerfeld, Michael Douglas-starrer Franklin for Apple TV+ and Jonathan Nolan’s Fallout for Amazon.
