It’s five in the afternoon and it’s pitch black in Copenhagen when I start my call with Danish actress Maria Erwolter, and even though she looks snug in her hygge spot, she’s not a lover of winter:

Some people are okay with the dark here but I can’t stand it – give me the sunshine!”

We spoke about two series that she has recently worked on that have been released on Netflix – 1899 and Copenhagen Cowboy.

Here she has got to work with two masters when it comes to direction, with 1899 being helmed by Baran bo Odar, the director behind Dark, and the great Danish director Nicholas Winding Refn creating the other.

1899 is so dark and Copenhagen Cowboy is so colourful and twisted.”
