I booked a print work for up and coming Finnish VR company. We had a very sci-fi themed photoshoot last week. 
As an actress I love booking all kinds of jobs. Print is very different medium and I enjyed every minute of it!

Resume

 

Katri Swan

I have been intrigued by the art of storytelling from a very young age. 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, Los Angeles, 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.
