Josefine has been in different drama groups since the age of 4 and just after she turned 5, she stood on the main stage in her hometown and loved it. She felt at home and knew that she wanted to do it over and over again.
When a drama school that also does Film & Television opened where she lives in UK, she joined them as she had always loved being in front of the camera and it was a perfect match. She has learned the teamwork behind making a film and all the hard work that it involves and that is now her passion, to be in front of the camera and make the team proud.
She also love dancing and singing and started early with ballet and tap but she does not do it anymore. At age 6 she started competing in Scottish Highland dance and which she still does. When she was 8 years old, she was invited to the Queens 90th Birthday Celebration at the British Embassy in Stockholm as a solo dancer for the grand finale with 2000 guests attending.
She loves learning new things so now she is exploring British sign language and boxing and taking singing lessons.
She looks forward to the future and what it will bring.
