Stella

Hello and welcome to my Web page!

I am happy you found me!

I am a strong and versatile young actor and singer, graduated from the Theatre Academy at the University of the Arts in Helsinki in 2016. I also have a D-level degree in Musical singing, and am currently working on a D-degree in Classical singing as well.
During my career I have also had the pleasure of partaking in projects that have included courses specializing in acrobatics, improv, puppeteering and mask theatre. And some aerial acrobatics with a ring! While singing. Upside down.

I have worked both on stage and in front of the camera in different parts of Finland and Sweden, in Swedish, Finnish and English. I speak all three of these languages fluently (English with a British accent).
I am currently based in (but not bound to) Helsinki. Visit the CV -menu for more information (in your language of chioce).

My Special Talents include:

– Singing in every genre and both low and extremely high
– Basic acrobatics
– Burping on command
– Jumping into a role on short notice (LOVE IT!!)
– Strength (Lifting weights has become an obsession, believe it or not. I have also recently signed up for my first Marathon.)
– Juggling with three balls (Or other objects. Fruit, for example.)
– Rubik’s Cube (not fast, but can do it in under 3 minutes! Also quite good at Sudoku and jigsaw puzzles.)
– Very primitive basics in piano, violin, guitar, bass, harmonica, ukulele and various skiffle-music instruments. Unfortunately I play very poorly (but gladly!)
– Nerdyness in the subjects of Star Wars and Moomin. Okay, and Harry Potter.
– Making and eating pancakes
– Looking very young

At the moment I work mainly at Unga Teatern, a children’s theatre in the Helsinki region, but I am happy to make arrangements for freelance-gigs and other projects. Hit me up!
