Lisbet
Kofoed

Laura's psychiatrist at Liseholm

The no-nonsense doctor runs a tight ship at Liseholm. She refuses to play favorites with Laura, despite the fact that her mother is the PM. In fact, she wants to kick Laura out of the program when her presence attracts paparazzi to the hospital grounds.

Portrayed by: Stina Ekblad

Birgitte
Nyborg

Prime Minister, Moderate Party Leader. The successful psychiatrist identifies with Birgitte's struggle to find an appropriate balance between career and family. She assures the PM that her job wasn't the cause of her daughter's mental health breakdown.

Laura
Christensen

Birgitte and Phillip's daughter. She convinces Laura to enter the long-term therapy program by proving that she's knowledgeable about her condition. Lisbet is later forced to ask Birgitte and Phillip to remove their daughter from the hospital when the paparazzi invasion interferes with the other patients' progress. This leaves Birgitte no other choice but to temporarily step down as PM to regain her privacy.
