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 2010 she starred as Lara in "In Therapie", the Dutch version of "In Treatment", and in two Dutch book adaptions. "De Eetclub", directed by Robert Jan Westdijk and "Isabelle" by director Ben Sombogaart. In the summer of 2011 Halina is added to the cast of "Goltzius & The Pelican Company", directed by Peter Greenaway. In 2013 she plays the title role in the weekly TV series "Charlie", a Dutch remake of Showtime's "Nurse Jackie". In 2014 she could be seen in box office hit "Pak van mijn hart", a romantic comedy for the holiday season.
In 2016/2017 she can be seen in the musical film "De Zevende Hemel" and on stage in the play "Obsession" next to Jude Law, this play is a coproduction between Toneelgroep Amsterdam and the Barbican Centre London.
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.
