Anna Easteden is a Finnish –born farmer’s daughter, an international model and a Los Angeles –based award nominated actress. Anna started her career as a teenager after receiving a large modeling contract with a Japanese modeling agency.
In Tokyo she modeled for large companies: Kanebo, Sony, Nissen, Wacoal, Oricom, NEC and Lux, among many others. In addition to working in Japan, Anna, who loves traveling, worked in other countries, such as Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and New Zealand.
Anna has proven however that her versatility goes beyond just being multilingual and gorgeous. She is actually an accomplished actress. Anna’s first theater performance as an actress was in a musical “The Sleeping Beauty” at the Tivoli Theater in Chicago in the name role “Beauty”. Her acting talent was recognized at the Method Fest Film Festival when she was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress-award for her portrayal of a soft-hearted hooker in Mika Kaurismaki’s lively Finnish comedy The House of Branching Love. Anna has also captured guest appearance roles in other popular television series including Medium, Bones, and The Days of Our Lives.

Anna conducted a comparative legal research study on the different aspects of asylum procedures in selected European countries for United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Bratislava, Slovakia. Her research impacted the Slovak National Asylum Legislation, which was in the process of amendment.
Anna is the perfect mix of all the right elements with the comedic personality of Tina Fey, the acting fortitude of Jodie Foster, and fiery red hair that rivals the manes of Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman. Or as IGN succinctly put it, Anna is a “fascinating uber-babe.”
