Since her international breakthrough in shows by major streaming services, American-Danish-Korean actor Sandra Yi Sencindiver has taken her career's "second renaissance" as a call to redress what she says is Denmark's lack of diversity and representation in the arts.

Sencindiver has had a prolific career in Danish theater since being cast at age 20 in a local production of "Miss Saigon," Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil's formerly critically acclaimed stage musical.

She has appeared in the Scandinavian noir dramas "The Bridge" (Season 4) and "Backstrom" and has written and directed her own short film "Watch" (2023), depicting two women sharing a childhood secret.
