Resume

 

Katri Swan

My movie debut was in a horror film based on Alfred Hitchcock´s Psycho and the well-known X-files and Twin Peaks. At the time I was only seven years old — I have been intrigued by the art of storytelling ever since. My journey took me through numerous plays and projects, after which I founded my own Theatre ensemble before the age of 20. I lived, breathed and studied acting and even theatre research at the University of Helsinki.

In 2014 after travelling around the world for almost two years, I decided to take advantage of living in the capital of film and started building my craft at the Actors Academy. Having mainly focused on theatre before, at the Academy I started training a new medium, film acting.

As storytelling is central to human existence and exists in every culture around the world, it´s my passion as an actress to explore the world as much as possible and to tell as many stories as I can. Stories connects us to humanity. We use stories for trying to make sense of the world and we share them in order to gain a better understanding of each other.
