STELLA ADLER TRAINED ACTRESS
I was born in Finland, in the early 1980's. My mother was a poet and my father was a house builder from an old industrial bloodline.
I've studied performing arts and screenwriting in New York, NY and in Helsinki, Finland.
My theatrical home is in The Stella Adler Studio of Acting, NYC.
I've also studied privately with Anthony Zerbe, who will remain as my life long teacher and coach and one of the biggest supporters on my career.
I'm a mother of one and I work with selected charity organisations.
I write, photograph, direct and produce to support my acting career.
My first book, a best seller, was released in September 2017. The book was awarded with the *best sports book of the year 2017* -title.
She´s *a natural actor*
who only needs the space to be
and exist freely in the chosen character.
(Bond & Matrix actor, teacher)
"She looks like a snowfall
on a field of wheat."
JOHN PATRICK SHANLEY
(Oscar & Tony winning playwright, director)
"She is a renaissance woman-
what ever she does she is able to pull out beautifully. She's a multi talented artist and an amazingly gifted writer."
(Award winning director, screenwriter)
