Yohanna Idha actress photographer Swedish actor


Every character, project and situation is different hence a showreel or a scene can never portrait the character or the essence you are searching for. If you are interested in using Yohanna Idha for your project. Do ask for a selftape or a meeting.

Every character demands a different persona & to find the version of oneself that best portrait the character envisioned you need to dive down deep into your soul & follow uncharted paths of your inner life. When you find that inner truth you build a character based on that speck of reality. Cover her with memories from your past & impressions from your surroundings. The end-result is someone you never knew existed within you but who feels very real to someone else. When you succeed each character is unique & a merge of the script-writers fantasy, the directors vision & the actress emotions & experiences. She is a creature of that specific production & only the ghost of her will forever haunt the actors soul. 

Still, each character has a stamp. The unique stamp of my personality and should your wish to get an idea of what I as an actress can offer your production then feel free to look through my earlier work & scenes.
