I was born in Sweden and trained at the Stockholm Academy of Drama. Since some years of my childhood were spent in Africa and my senior high-school year was spent in the U.S, I learnt English at a young age and speak it fluently, apparently with no accent at all!

I´m based in Sweden and well established there, but I have luckily had the chance of working with some international directors as Robert Wilson (A DREAMPLAY, THREE SISTERS) Mick Gordon (THE REAL THING) and David Ultz (PERICLES). Since the world is connecting more and more, the opportunity of acting in English has occurred and I find it challenging and enjoyable! I´ve also directed and produced. I sing, read music and play basic piano.

In 2012 I received a Guldbagge (Swedish Bafta) for Best Supporting Actress in the Swedish/German film ”SIMON AND THE OAKS”, directed by Lisa Ohlin.

For an English audience I have been in the Swedish WALLANDER episodes; The Weakest Point and The Photographer and in the Wallander film FIREWALL. In 2013, I did the silent solo-play REQUEST PROGRAMME by F X Kroetz at the Women in Arts Festival in London, having performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe 2011 and 2012 with great success.

I recently shot a commercial for IKEA in Israel (in a very Swedish 'character' role) and played in GRACE by Mick Gordon last autumn at the Swedish National Touring Theatre. I have a regular role in new Swedish TV series MODUS that I hope will screen soon in the UK.
