Deputy First Minister interviews Borgen PM for Scotland Tonight
Nicola Sturgeon interviewed the star of the hit Danish drama for STV during her trip to Scotland.
Political fiction and reality met as the Deputy First Minister welcomed the star of hit drama Borgen to Scotland at the weekend.
Nicola Sturgeon interviewed Sidse Babett Knudsen, who plays the Danish Prime Minister in the show, for STV's Scotland Tonight ahead of a series two finale screening in Edinburgh.
The political drama, which is shown on BBC4 and is available on DVD boxset, has been a big hit with viewers who identify its themes of family and relationships as well as the behind-the-scenes political dealings.
Many Scottish politicians are fans of the show and Ms Sturgeon often tweets about it during its regular Saturday night slot.
After the screening at the Filmhouse, Ms Sturgeon said: "I thought the last two episodes were fantastic and I can't wait for series three. Sidse's acting was superb in the series and it was a pleasure to meet her today.
"She is as attractive a personality in person as she comes across on screen."
