Actress, Fanny Rosen

Fanny Rosen was born in Sweden and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career. When she was ten she auditioned for a theatre group called, “Ramplijus” and started her journey. At sixteen she was accepted to the Mayors Dance and Theatre performing arts high school. She credits some of her role models as Audrey Hepburn and Meryl Streep.

In Sweden she was able to play Hermia in, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Iris Kelly, the lead dance part in, “Fame.” These were plays she took place in while being a part of, “Cabaret Moulin, which was nominated as, “Sweden’s Best Dragshow,” multiple times. As you can see she was able to take on a wide range of roles to sharpen her acting tools.

She was also in several plays in LA that allowed her to take on a wide range of roles. In, “The Elephant Man,” Fanny played the female lead Mrs. Kendal. The role was exciting because it was directed by daytime Emmy winner Milton Justice. She felt her role was important because Mrs. Kendal was the one who saw the Elephant Man’s true soul. She was also in the play, “Lost in Yonkers,” written by Neil Simon. This play was about two boys left in the care of their cold grandmother and mentally challenged Aunt Belle. Fanny played Belle and showed her range as an actress in the challenging role. Another play she was happy to be a part of was, “Romance,” which was a comedy that pretty much makes fun of everything from lawyers to chiropractors. Fanny played a defense attorney.

Fanny’s advice for up and coming performers is to, “not to give up. It takes patience to be in this business. Just work hard and do whatever you can every day to get closer to your goals, step by step.” Fanny is still in Los Angeles pursuing work as an actress and has most recently been in, “The Hunting Games,” which was a short, and, “Lost Angels,” a drama directed by Stan Harrington.
