The employment came immediately after Springborg graduated from Aarhus Theatre’s student school.
Here, the Aarhusian hung out for several seasons and made his breakthrough in the play “The Horse God”, where he, among other things, played scenes without a shred on his body.
In 1975, he was nominated for a Bodil for his supporting role in “Only the Truth”. Among other things, he also starred in “The Boys from St. Petri”, where he played schoolteacher, and then he had a minor role in the TV series “Strisser på Samsø”.
In the TV series “The Spider” he played an opportunistic editor-in-chief, while in one of his later roles in the theater he played the father in Thomas Vinterberg’s award-winning “The Party”.
According to the film database Imdb, he has played a total of 35 roles on film.
While he managed to star in a sea of films and TV series, it is the theater scene that he will primarily be remembered for.
He stopped his career as a 63-year-old in 2017, after a violent accident when he had to get off the city bus in Copenhagen. He broke his ankle, and after several months of rehabilitation and the realization that mobility would not be the same, he retired.
Springborg leaves behind his wife, Alexandra Foss Springborg, with whom he had been married since 1979.
