It might not have been a Danish film, but given its subject matter and name, it made sense that all the stars turned up for the premiere of ‘The Danish Girl’ at the Imperial on February 2 – albeit several months after the US premiere.
Its director Tom Hooper and lead actors Alicia Vikander and  Eddie Redmayne also found time to visit Arken to admire the ongoing exhibition of the work of Gerda Wegener, the wife of the ‘Danish Girl’, who Vikander portrays in the film.
Among those in attendance at the premiere were US ambassador Rufus Gifford, seen here speaking to Redmayne …

Its director Martin Zandvliet was among the winners as it walked off with six statuettes.
Meanwhile, the big TV winner was Arvingerne, which won five awards
