Who Is The Lead Girl In Das Sound Machine?

by Kenya Foy

Now that the long wait for Pitch Perfect 2 to hit theaters is finally over, fans of the epic, aca-awesome franchise are likely still raving over the film and discussing its finer points. For instance, how does it compare to the original Pitch Perfect? And will there be a third installment of Pitch Perfect ? In the midst of pondering plot lines past, present and future, it's likely that many are also asking another question related to the film: Who is the lead girl in Das Sound Machine?

Well, guys, you've come to the right place, because I have your answer: In reality, the "lead girl" who plays the role of Kommissar in Pitch Perfect 2 actually has more than a one-word name in real life (and a quite beautiful one, at that). Birgitte Hjort Sørensen is a 33-year-old theatre, TV and film star from Denmark. Since Sørensen’s fresh off challenging the Bellas on screen, it might be tempting to dismiss her with a haughty hair flip and an a cappella rendition of “This Is How We Do It” — but take a step back (along with a deep breath) and allow yourself to separate the movie character from the actual person, because the woman behind the feisty, leather-clad Das Sound Machine group member happens to be a rather interesting individual.
