Bente Danielsson has a long history of acting, directing, producing and doing stand-up. As a writer, she has worked for numerous production companies, both as writer and script consultant, as well as developing her own original ideas. She also runs script workshops at Stockholm University and Biskops Arnö.

Bente studied film and TV scriptwriting at Stockholm University of the Arts, and was trained as an actress at the Academy of Music and Drama. She has appeared as an actress in numerous film and television productions, as well as onstage for Sweden’s National Touring Theatre and at several of Sweden’s City Theatres. In addition to this, she has performed as a singer, as a playwright, and as a director and producer. She has worked as a columnist and a features writer, and has performed stand-up comedy, including her own critically-acclaimed show Fake it ’til You Make it.

As a writer, Bente has worked with many prestigous production companies – including Jarowskij, FLX, Warner/Eyeworks and Filmlance. Additionally, she has worked as a script consultant, on shows like Limboland, which was nominated for Best European Fiction Series, Prix Europa 2020.

With a background in acting, Bente creates characters that feel real and nuanced, while working in sympathy with story and motivation; she really enjoys writing organic, vibrant dialogue.

Bente has three children, one of which has extensive special needs. This experience – and the Kafkaesque craziness of it – has fed into her writing. While often drawn in the direction of comedy-drama, Bente, like the passionate storytelling nerd she is, loves writing in all genres.
