Gørild Mauseth

Gørild Mauseth (born 24 April 1972) is a Norwegian actress. After graduating from the Norwegian National Academy of Theatre, she has worked at both Den Nationale Scene and Nationaltheatret (the National Theatre). She is best known for her movie and television roles, that include "Deadline Torp" (TV, 2005) and Når mørket er forbi (Passing Darkness, 2000). In 2001 she was named one of European films' Shooting Stars by the European Film Promotion.

Mauseth attracted a lot of attention for a nude scene in the 1997 movie Brent av frost, where she and co-star Stig Henrik Hoff had sex on a pile of fish in a row boat. For the role she won the "Best Début" Amanda Award in 1998. A controversy erupted when the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) later showed the scene out of context and without permission. NRK was originally convicted for unauthorised use of the clip, then acquitted in a court of appeal as being within Norway's right to quote doctrine, but then finally convicted by the Supreme Court.

Mauseth is married to the Italian director and producer Tommaso Mottola, and the couple live together in Rome.
