I grew up on the outskirts of the Northern Finnish city of Rovaniemi, right by the arctic circle. Through an occurrence I happened to make my film debut at the age of seven in Rikos & Rakkaus, which is how my passion was lit. I proceeded acting in an amateur theatre, and later moved to Tampere and began my acting studies at Finnish Theatre Academy (Suomen Teatteriopisto) in 2011.
I graduated from Standard Studies in Acting in 2012 and Further Studies in Acting in 2013, and was honored to receive the Most Improved Acting Award in both years. I then moved to Helsinki where I studied in a private musical theatre school during 2013-2014. In 2013 I also started my studies in Theatre Research and Film and Television Studies at The University of Helsinki, graduating with Bachelor of Arts in 2017. After that I dedicated a year to acting in English, and graduated from English Drama course at West Finland College in May 2018.
Alongside and after all the studies I’ve been doing films, theatre and improvisation theatre. Some of my latest bigger works have been the female lead role in an upcoming feature film Gravedigger and the Random People, and the play Harhama in Espoo City Theatre (Espoon kaupunginteatteri, The International Theatre of Finland) by Juha Hurme in 2020. My earlier works include the lead role in a feature film Elysium Hernalsiense in Vienna, Austria.
What I really love in this job and way of life is the excitement, challenge, suspense, intriguing characters and always finding something new. And above all, I look forward to facing all kinds of new adventures!
