Connie Nielsen plays a woman in her new British thriller “Close to Me” who can’t remember a year of her life after a bad fall and head injury.

As the series continues, it becomes clear that the fall was not accidental.

“I never think I’ve ever played a man like Joe,” Nielsen, 56, told The Post. “I’ve never played such a caustic or fact-based person. I played the role of a fatal woman in Ice Harvest, but I don’t think I played a woman that way. You will actually go through many stages of his life with him during these six episodes. And it seemed like a luxury to allow that person to dive into that level of life.

In “Close to Me,” Connie Nielsen plays Joe Harding, who is trying to recover her memories after a non-accidental mysterious fall.

Born in Denmark but living in San Francisco, Nielsen is best known for her roles in Gladiator and The Miracle Woman.

Now (Sundance Now) and on Channel 4 in the UK, the series “Close to Me” tells the story of her husband Rob (Christopher Ecclestone) and Danish translator Joe Harding (Nielsen) who is living a perfect life with their adult children.

As the story continues after he is injured from the start, Joe Rob learns of a number of traumatic events he forgot about last year, including the death of his dog (Rob informs him that his neighbor is watching the puppy) and that his father lied. dementia. At first, it looks like she’s lying to save her feelings, but she begins to suspect that something even more horrible is happening – and one of them may have been in a romantic relationship. As he has some memories and tries to reconcile what really happened (by sharing his thoughts with the audience), he becomes increasingly paranoid.

“If your brain has changed, it’s yours or your brain? It’s weird to think,” Nielsen said. Joe is very disrespectful and has the opportunity to stay behind the woman’s face and listen to what she has to say.

Connie Nielsen is standing outside the field.
Joe Harding (Connie Nielsen) in “Close to Me” is trying to figure out who is lying to him about what happened last year.

“They always have to be somehow charming,” he said. “But Joe and I are really brutally honest. Especially since this woman is going through menopause, I wanted her to be a part of the conversation because it’s like a dirty secret that women experience. Women, even in their own families, really do.” are experiencing life-changing experiences, but without any help in their own homes. So I wanted to emphasize that as well. “
