Danish actress Betty Nansen was quoted by Photoplay Magazine during 1915 in an article entitled The Vikingess about her staring in screen adaptations of Ibsen's work, "Hitherto film offers for most of the plays- "Peer Gynt" being a notable exception have been refused. 'I feel hopeful of inducing the Ibsen family to reconsider", said Madame Nansen, especially since I who have been so closely linked to these plays have gone into the movies."
