She had dreams of working her way up in movies and being a director one day. Instead she became an actor and got a part in a long running TV series called Nya Tider on Swedish television. It was a huge learning experience for her and a lot of fun along the way. Maria is the sort of person that jumps on a train and sees where it takes her. Her life has been a lot of chain reactions that turned out for the best. She always keeps her sense of humor and has faith that life will take her where she was meant to go. Acting is a real challenge, but when she is completely in the moment, it is magic.Currently Maria is working with children's film and TV to see where that train takes her.
