Anneke von der Lippe (born 22 July 1964) is a Norwegian actress. She made history as the first Norwegian actress – and Nordic - to win an International Emmy Award.[1]


She graduated from the Norwegian National Academy of Theatre in 1988, and has since acted both at Det Norske Teatret (the Norwegian Theater) and at Nationaltheatret (the National Theatre), in roles such as "Nora" in Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, "Masja" in Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, and "Gwendolen Fairfax" in Oscar Wildes The Importance of Being Earnest.[2]

She has won the Amanda – the main Norwegian film award – for best actress twice: for Krigerens hjerte in 1992, and for Over stork og stein and Pan in 1995. She was named one of European films "Shooting Stars" by European Film Promotion in 1998.[3] In 2005, she was, as the first Norwegian actor ever, nominated for an International Emmy Award for her role in the TV-drama Ved kongens bord.[2]

In 2015 Anneke won an International Emmy Award for her role in the NRK tv-drama Øyevitne.[4]
