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 both Musical singing and in Classical opera singing.

During my career I have had the pleasure of partaking in projects that have included courses specializing in acrobatics, dance, improv, puppeteering, mask theatre and the Finnish and Finnish-Swedish Sign Language. 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:

– Looking very young
– 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 ran my first Marathon in 4h 42min.)
– 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

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions or want to come see me in a show. If you want to meet up to discuss upcoming projects or casting, let’s do it over a cup of tea. You will find show dates and times in my Calendar in the top menu, and information about currently running shows below.

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!
You’ll find my contact information if you scroll down on any page on this web site.

Currently you can see me in:

At Unga Teatern you can currently see me in the by both critics and audiences adored Fem mål mat – Vad jag åt och vem jag åt det med.
The show will run until March 2022 in both Swedish and Finnish, in Finnish under the nam of Viisi ateriaa päivässä – Eli mitä söimme ja missä.

In the end of November the immersive Christmas play for small children in the age of 2-6, Julen enligt Elsa Beskow will have its long awauted premiere. I will as Lotta-Petter, from Elsa Beskows fairy tale world, guide the kids through different activities in different parts of the theatre house. The play has sold extremely well, so be quick if you want a ticket! More about the show here, dates and tickets here.

Claes Olsson’s film Den Svavelgula Himlen / Rikinkeltainen Taivas (“The Yellow Sulphur Sky”), based on the book by Kjell Westö, in which I play Stella Rabell’s rebel daughter Sandi Rabell, is currently running in cinemas in Finland and Sweden. It will also be cut into a TV-series that will air on YLE in the spring of 2022. (Solar Films 2021)

The TV-series Spegelvägen (for brave 7-11 year old children) is to be found on the Yle Arena (link here). It is a lovely autumn halloween mystery adventure for the entire family, perfect for cosy dark evenings. I have the great honor to play the opera singing and slightly eccentric aunt Sigga of the fantastic lead role, 9 year old Leia, who’s parents have disappeard… The TV-series is directed by Staffan Gräsbeck and Monica Vikström-Jokela. Svenska Yle 2021.

Lauri Maijala’s TV-series Aktivistit about Finnish activists in the early 20th century, is now back on the Yle Arena (link here). In the first episode of the series I play a young Sigrid Schauman, painter and sister of the legendary Eugen Schauman. (Helsinki Filmi 2019)
