She also plays Christensen's girlfriend in the sitcom Klovn (Clown).

Hjejle was born in Copenhagen. She has starred in a series of Danish movies, including a Dogme movie, and also in Danish-produced action movies such as Gamle mænd i nye biler (Old Men in New Cars). She also played the Swedish Queen Sofia Magdalena in SVT's successful period drama production of Gustav III:s äktenskap (The Marriage of Gustav III) in 2001.

From 1996-1999 she was married to Emil de Waal. She has lived with Danish comedian Casper Christensen since 2002. She turned down the role of Eowyn in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy because she didn't like the idea of being so far from home. She has a son, William, with de Waal. He was born on November 3, 1998.
