My mom is a stage ac­tor and I grew up go­ing to the the­atre. I also stud­ied at the Royal Swedish Bal­let School for nine years, so I was fa­mil­iar with per­form­ing.

Why did you de­cide to pursue

a ca­reer in act­ing? I al­most went to law school, but two weeks be­fore start­ing, I got called to au­di­tion for the role of atarina in the lm Pure. I de­layed school for an­other six months, but then booked my next lm, s The Crown Jewels, and de­cided to give act­ing a fair go.

What's next for you Out this year is The Light Be­tween Oceans with Michael ass­ben­der and I m shoot­ing the next ason Bourne lm with Matt amon.
