A STAR from the hit Danish political drama 'Borgen' was among the actors to scoop an award at the Subtitle European Film Festival.

Pilou Asbaek, who plays Kasper Juul in the political series, won an award for his role in the movie 'A Hijacking'.

He played a cook on a Danish trawler taken over by Somali pirates in the production.

The awards ceremony was held the Set Theatre, in Co Kilkenny, and hosted by actress and author Pauline McLynn.

A host of luminaries attended the event, including director Jim Sheridan and actors Robert Sheehan, Amy Huberman, Laurence Kinlan, Sean McGinley and Tom Hickey.
