Ida Elise Broch
Ida Elise Broch will star in the latest Norwegian Viaplay Original “Fenris,” an intense and atmospheric drama series centered around mysterious disappearances in a remote, wolf-inhabited forest on the Swedish border. Created and directed by award-winning Simen Alsvik, and with a supporting cast of top Norwegian screen talents, “Fenris” will premiere exclusively on Viaplay in 2022.
When a young boy from a small Norwegian town vanishes, rumours that wolves are responsible immediately swirl. Visiting biologist Emma Salomonsen (Ida Elise Broch) discovers the boy’s bloody jacket in the home of her father Marius, a controversial wolf researcher – and when Marius too disappears, Emma is forced to rely on her own instincts and understanding of wolves to uncover the dark truth.
“I was totally engrossed when I first read the script. It was so exciting that I just couldn’t put it down. Emma is an enigma and reminds me a little of Ibsen’s ‘Hedda Gabler,’ whom I’ve played on stage: unapproachable and extremely complex,” Ida Elise Broch commented.
Filippa Wallestam, Chief Content Officer of NENT Group, added: “In this memorable series, the beautiful Nordic forests become a nightmarish labyrinth as soon as night falls. Likewise, there’s a hidden side to each of the characters. Figuring out who to trust and exactly what happened in ‘Fenris’ will keep Viaplay viewers around the world guessing all the way, and will make the show an intriguing addition to our fast-growing Norwegian slate”.
The six-part series also stars Cengiz Al, Helena Ødven, Jan Gunnar Røise, Viljar Knutsen Bjaadal, Ingjerd Egeberg, and John Emil Jørgensrud. “Fenris” is written by Simen Alsvik, Maren Skolem and Nikolaj Scherfig, and produced by Sigurd Mikal Karoliussen, with Sveinung Golimo and Tanya Nanette Badendyck as executive producers for Nordisk Film Production and Viaplay respectively.
