“I was a young man from a troubled background; walking around the streets without meaning and purpose in my life. Then a tip about a casting call for a film suddenly changed everything. I went there and got the lead role in the film – and that experience really rocked my world – and since then I haven’t looked back. In my acting; I want to bring the character to life and portray the parts I’m playing with integrity, dignity and curiosity – to help the story fulfill its vision. I want to work in Sweden and abroad – in drama, thriller and comedy. Thank you for your time” Ola
