Exclusive: Swedish Actress Lena Endre Joins Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master'

With filming to set to begin soon, casting continues on Paul Thomas Anderson‘s highly anticipated untitled religious film aka “The Master.” Just yesterday a trio of thesps — Jesse Plemons, David Warshofsky and Laura Dern — came aboard the film and now another name previously linked to the project has come aboard as well.

Reps for Swedish actress Lena Endre have confirmed to The Playlist that she has joined the film in an unspecified supporting role. The actress was first revealed to be in the running for a role last month alongside the aforementioned Dern, Madisen Beaty and Amy Adams. No word yet on the latter two, but it appears that so far Anderson is able to get the leading ladies he would like for the film.

Endre is perhaps best known to audiences worldwide as Erika Berger in the Swedish film trilogy of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” books. She also plays Katarina Ahlsell in the celebrated series “Wallander” and has also collaborated with Ingmar Bergman on a number of projects including “In The Presence Of A Clown,” “Sunday’s Children,” “The Best Intention’s” and “Faithless” (Bergman directed the first film, and wrote the other three).

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix topline the film which begins production on June 13th.
