  • Franziska Nylen is a Swedish actress who grew up in Sweden. Being the middle child in a family of six kids, she had to early on grow independence. She started acting out performances 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.

    Franziska Nylén has gained recognition for her accomplishments as an ambassador for a women’s entrepreneurs organisation, called Wefound. In her work she promoted women, inspiring them to believe in themselves to become independent. Together with the organisation she has toured around whole Europe to give speeches at events. She has for instance appeared as a speaker at re:publica and Startup Safary Berlin and is today known for her bold stage presence.
