Gerda Gilboe (5 July 1914 - 11 April 2009) was a Danish actress and singer. She appeared in 18 films between 1943 and 2003.
The daughter of a blacksmith, Gilboe started her career in musical theatre and operas in Aarhus before she moved to Copenhagen to work at different theatres. Her national breakthrough came, when she on short notice accepted the role as Eliza in My Fair Lady at Falkoner Teatret in 1960. Although she was then in her mid-40s and had only five days to learn the part, the production was a huge success.
In the following years she took on more and more non-singing roles, and besides her theatre career she took a degree in rhetoric. Later in her life she started teaching rhetoric and drama. She appeared in several films, receiving particular acclaim for her appearance as Esther in the film Carlo & Esther (1994).
Gilboe died on 11 April 2009 at an actors' home in Copenhagen, aged 94.
