Acting Makes Sense

Acting has always been one of my passions. But as long as my main work has been on creating visuals – art and illustrations – I’ve felt little shy about the actress in me even though I’ve gotten great roles trough castings. Now when I found my way to animation, acting makes so much sense.

The fact I’ve done acting both in films and theatre stage is a huge advantage when animating a character. I can act out emotions and replicate them to my drawings. Skills in improvisation help me out when trying to brainstorm ideas fast. So for now on I’m gonna embrace my love for acting. I’m super excited to be (small) part of two Finnish feature films that will come out this summer: Viraali and Lauri Mäntyvaaran tuuheet ripset. Thank you for these opportunities. Red carpet here I come.

P.S. Meet the poet and snow leopard Leopold from 2013. More photos of my roles in the acting page.
