“My desire is to show that what makes us humans powerful beyond measure is our vulnerability. I tear down inner walls
– that’s how I give life to my work. It just happens to be acting I do.”

Franziska Nylén is a Scandinavian actress who grew up in Sweden. Being the middle child in a family of six kids, she had to grow independence early on. She started performing in her solitude to an imaginary audience, as a way of dealing with her inner world. With the years passing, this occupation had become a sharp-edged skill and so she decided to make it into a career. As she turned nineteen she got accepted to start at one of Stockholm’s most prestigious acting schools, Calle Flygare. She made her way to the German capital, where she discovered the uncompromising and creative film culture of Berlin. This was where she had the opportunity to collaborate with other film talents and evolve her own unique expression.
