    About me

    I am a Swedish actor working in the UK and in Sweden. I radiate positivity and I have great comic timing and an expressive face. I have also been called "an English rose with an edge". I really enjoy switching between the minimalistic acting on screen and the sweaty explorative physical performance in the rehearsal room. I work on screen, on stage, with modelling and voice overs, while studying acting part-time and doing workshops to keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone and developing as an actor.

    My goal has always been to do work that makes the audience question the preconceptions they have of others, to get the audience to think about how different people's living conditions are - to challenge people's prejudices. But I've also realised how great it is to just gather people to laugh together. The most rewarding show I've ever done was when I studied acting in Sweden in 2017. We received a grant to create a show performing at homes for refugees. Meeting all these people and sharing laughs was so great, and my favourite moment was when our performance turned into a disco with the audience.

    I have always chosen between working with social issues or acting, and my dream is to be able to combine the two. Joy is sometimes political, too.

    I am currently in rehearsals for Identity School of Acting's first online showcase, which will be performed in the beginning of December.

    I was rehearsing a devised physical theatre piece directed by Greta Mendez, set to be shown at Identity School of Acting's showcase in March 2020. We will instead be performing it in October 2020.
