Halina Reijn (born 10 November 1975) is a Dutch actress and writer.
Halina Reijn was professionally trained at the Maastricht Academy of Dramatic Arts. While still a student, she was asked to join the ensemble at the Theatercompagnie where she had leading roles in plays such as Hamlet (as Ophelia) and Shopping and Fucking (as Lulu) for which she received the prestigious Dutch theater prize, the Colombina, as "Best Supporting Actress" in 1998. In 2003 she joined the ensemble at Toneelgroep Amsterdam. With Toneelgroep Amsterdam, Halina Reijn has performed main roles in The Taming of the Shrew, Hedda Gabler, Oresteia and Mourning Becomes Electra, for which she was nominated for a Theo d'Or for “Best Female Actress”.
In 2006 she starred in A Thousand Kisses directed by Willem van de Sande Bakhuijzen, Black Book directed by Paul Verhoeven (the Dutch entry for the Academy Awards as Best Foreign Language Film) and Blind by Tamar van den Dop. In 2008, she portrayed Margarethe von Oven in Valkyrie starring Tom Cruise.
In 2013 the two published a book together called Anti Glamour, a (mock) style guide and a celebration of their friendship, as well as a candid look into the unglamourous back-stage side of their lives. Although the two occasionally kiss on camera, and have joked about being lesbians, there is no actual romantic involvement.
