Trivia (4)

Children: Daughter, Tove and sons Paul and Saima
Rosing married Einer Jansen, a Norwegian doctor specializing in skin diseases, in 1897 or 1898. They had 4 children. Their daughter Tova (b. appro. 1899) was married to actor Monte Blue from 1924 until her death in 1956. Next was son Roderick (b. 1899), followed by another son Paul (b. 1920) and daughter Saima (b. 1923). For some reason, Paul and Saima are sometimes referred to as twins, but 1920 census records list specific dates and ages and they are not. By 1920, Bodil and Einer had divorced, and Roderick, Paul and Saima were living in Seattle, Washington with their father. Bodil and Tova apparently were making their way to Los Angeles, though census records don't indicate where they were living in 1920.
Danish character actress, in Hollywood from 1924. A graduate from the drama school of The Danish Royal Theater, she was extremely versatile in a variety of ethnicities, often playing domestics, landladies, villagers, cooks or nurses.
She appeared in three Best Picture Academy Award winners: All Quiet on the Western Front (1930), Grand Hotel (1932) and You Can't Take It with You (1938).
