Thanks to her classical theater and circus background, Matilda Jelse has great breadth in her acting. She can credibly take on both emotionally-driven roles and those more physically demanding and then make them her own.

What I love about acting is all the different people I meet on productions and the fact that I constantly have to challenge myself in unknown situations. The more challenging the more fun! The same goes for characters, they should be complex and tricky.


If you choose me for your project, you get a playful individual with lots and lots of energy.
