Helena Mattsson Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Helena Christina Mattsson was born on the 30th March 1984, in Stockholm, Sweden. She has three sisters, Sophia, who is also an actress and is best known as Sasha Gilmore in the TV series “General Hospital” (2018-2020); Cecilia, and Mia, who is a painter and has worked on several films in the art department. Helena spent her childhood in Stockholm, where she finished Performance Arts High School. After matriculation, she moved to London, where she continued to study acting, then went to Los Angeles, where she started pursuing a career as an actress.
Before finishing her education, Helena had roles in “Wild Side Story” and other cabaret shows in Sweden, and then when she settled in the USA, she started by appearing in commercials. She made her on-screen debut in the TV series “Swede, Ohio” (2004), but had problems obtaining new roles, due to her thick Swedish accent. Helena worked on her English to correct that problem, and once she was comfortable with that, she started getting roles.
In the second half of the 2000s, she had few minor roles in such TV series as “Kitchen Confidential” (2006), and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” (2007), and the same year she secured her first lead role as Miranda in “Species: The Awakening”. From 2007 until 2011, she secured minor roles in several TV series, such as “Two and a Half Men” (2008), “Legend of the Seeker” (2009), and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (2010), while also making a notable appearance in the TV drama series “Desperate Housewives” (2010).
Rise to Stardom
In 2011 she secured a supporting role in the romantic drama film “You and I”, and the next year, she was chosen for one of her most popular roles, as Alexis Blume in the TV horror-drama series “666 Park Avenue” (2012-2013), and starred in the comedy film “Melvin Smarty”, with Mark Matkevich and Andy Allo. She also made a brief appearance in the comedy-crime film “Seven Psychopaths”, starring Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, and Sam Rockwell.
The role of Alexis Blume had put her on the Hollywood map, which granted her auditions for more notable roles, and in 2013 she was Brandy in the TV drama series “Betrayal”. In 2016 she starred in the action crime-mystery film “The Persian Connection”, with Reza Sixo Safai and Parviz Sayyad. In 2018 she featured in the biopic about French actor Herve Villechaize, entitled “My Dinner with Herve”, with Peter Dinklage in the lead role, and recently she was selected for the role of Anderson in the TV crime series “Paper Empire”.
Currently, Helena is working on several films, including the horror “Vanity”, in which she will be the lead star, then the thriller film “Deadly Cyber Bully” and the drama film “Something About Her”, all scheduled for release late in 2020.
