When people ask me why I've gone into acting I tell them because there's nothing else that makes me as happy and fulfilled and that I rather act (and sometimes or often live off of Roman Noodles) than to sit pretty with a job I don't like wishing I were acting.
I have worked in film and television both in Sweden as well as in the US. Initially I was type casted a lot but in the past couple of years I have been casted to play a diverse set of roles. I enjoy exploring the essential timing of comedy as well digging deep into complex characters. Lately, I have been hired for lots of voice over work and I started recording audio books which I find very stimulating. One gets to dwell deep into every character in the book, all at once. Very cool.
I got into acting at age 6 enrolling in, now, late comedian Ulf Larsson's acting school. My dad was a jazz musician so music was a natural part of my upbringing and I've loved singing and dancing since I can remember. At age 10 I was accepted to a performing arts school where I studied singing and acting. After high school I went on to study Theater and Singing at Folkhögskola. I continue to learn and study the craft and in the most recent years I have studied the Stanislavkij technique for Anna-Belle Rice (one year with monologue and dialogue), Acting for Film at Cinemantrix and method acting by Lukas Loughran.
My current project includes a lead role in the future Swedish television series "För Evigt Trogen" with Björn Bengtsson and Rafael Edholm and I have shot the following films in Los Angeles in the past four months:
“Barriers” – Lead role as Ava, an Israeli immigrant woman (Hebrew accent) – NYFA 2017
“Redemption” – Lead role as “Diana”, a dying mother – NYFA 2017
“Christmas Tree” – award winning shortfilm – supporting role as “Store salesperson” 2017
“Viral” – supporting role as a news anchor – Majed Film Production 2017
“Acceptance” – Lead role as “Julia”, a mourning step-mom – short film NYFA 2017
“Dr. Blake” – Lead role as “Dr. Blake”, a narcissistic mentally disturbed warden – short film Santa Monica School of Film 2017
