I am born on the countryside of Sweden amongst horses and fields. I have been acting since I was a child, imitating people and trying to portrait the world. 

 

In 2001 I was accepted at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and went to New York City to pursue my dream. I loved it and grew both as an actress and a woman. In 2004 I graduated from AADA with an associate degree in Meissner Techniques. 

In November 2011 I won the best actress award at the Stockholm International Filmfestival for the part as the blonde bimbo in the feature film Certain People directed by Levan Akin. The film premiered in Swedish Cinemas in 2012 and won be a nomination at the Guldbagge Awards in January 2013. The part was also praised at the Tribecca Filmfestival in 2012. I am very honoured to have had the privaledge to portrait the character Linda and the fantastic response has been more than overwhelming.

I am currently acting in the successful webseries "Elsa's World" (Elsa's Värld) on TV3 Play as the ex-supermodel Julia Kult. It was a fantastic opportunity to play an überbitch in a beautiful comedy series based on Sofie Fahrman's books about Elsa. The series premiers on October 30th on TV3 play.

 

The feature "Angry" has been released on iTunes, Amazon.com and can now be downladed. I am acting opposite Lifetime achievement and award-winning actor Bo Svenson in the film.

 

This fall I am shooting the feature "Lost" ("Vilsen") with the ambitious independent company Branbomm Film as well as doing my first part in a Bollywood Production.

 

ACCEPTANCE SPEACH Sthlm Filmfestival 2011 winning Best Actress:

Motivation: 

For a touching and compelling portrayal of a rampant and somewhat naive woman who, during the course of one night, becomes the mockery by a party of hipsters with unfulfilled ambitions and broken dreams. This actress manages to deliver even the most awkward banalities with a perfect baance between sincerity and comical timing, never letting her character become a victim. 

BEST ACTRESS: Yohanna Idha from "Certain People" for the role as Linda
