Bjørn Bjørnson (15 November 1859 – 14 May 1942) was a Norwegian stage actor and theatre director.


He was born in Christiania, the son of author Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson and his wife Karoline Bjørnson. In 1876, he was admitted as a student at the Stern Conservatory operated by Julius Stern in Berlin, Germany. He also attended the Vienna Conservatory.

He was the artistic leader of Christiania Theatre from 1885 to 1893, and he was the first theatre director at the National Theatre, from its opening in 1899 until 1907, and again from 1923 to 1927. Besides being an actor and director, he also was a playwright.

In 1893 he married Norwegian opera singer Gina Oselio. Their marriage was dissolved in 1909.[1]
