Martial arts (kickboxing, Thaiboxing, Karate).
Since graduating from “The Prague Film School” I have mostly been working in television, film & commercials in Sweden. My most recent work for television is the Tunna Blå linjen (SVT) and Drottningarna (Cmore,TV4).
I have some feature film projects coming up abroad that I am looking forward as well as some TV roles both in Sweden and in the US. I am a capable horseback rider and experienced stage fighter, after training karate for 5 years as well as Thai boxing for 2.
I master three languages fluently (Swedish, English and Norwegian) and I’m proficient in American dialects as well. I live and work in Sweden (Stockholm) at the moment.
I have always loved cinema. And being able to live in another person’s life for a couple of months and tell their story is the most wonderful thing you can do in this life as an actor
