New Theatre Director Fires Ten Actors

New theatre director, Tinna Gunnlaugsdóttir, has called for a meeting at the National Theatre today where she will announce the termination of contract for ten of the theatre’s youngest actors.

According to Fréttabladid, among the actors fired are Edith Piaf star Brynhildur Gudjónsdóttir and her actor husband Atli Rafn Sigurdarson, actresses Thórunn Lárusdóttir, Nanna Kristín Magnúsdóttir and Sólveig Arnarsdóttir, and Rúnar Freyr Gíslason.

“I feel that the way she has gone about this undermines our value as actors,” Gudjónsdóttir told Frettabladid. “We’re on the so-called Dragon list and we won’t be making any further statements until later today.”

Gunnlaugsdóttir has not been available for comment.
