Sofia Mattsson has made an instant impact as Nina’s (alleged) long-lost daughter Sasha on General Hospital.
While a newcomer to the daytime world, the blue-eyed brunette stunner has appeared in several other projects.
Namely, the films Jurassic City, Becoming Bond, and Gothic Harvest. And she’s tackled primetime work, too, including a regular role on Campus Security and guest spots on Two and A Half Men and NCIS.
Want to learn more about the actress? Here are seven things to know about Sofia Mattson.
Daughter Deja Vu
Ironically, GH isn’t the first time Mattson has played a role like Sasha. She starred in the Lifetime movie titled, believe it or not, Long Lost Daughter. In it, she plays Michelle, a young woman who meets a woman whose daughter went missing 20 years earlier and becomes convinced she’s her long-lost child.
Mattson is of Swedish descent and, according to her Instagram page, appears to be fluent in her native tongue. She has a couple of posts that are actually in Swedish.
Sister, Sister, Sister
She’s not the only one in her family, who’s in show business. Her sister Helena Mattsson is a successful actress, who has appeared in a number of U.S. series including American Horror Story, Mistresses, and Desperate Housewives.
Her other sister, Mia, has worked as an assistant production designer, prop maker, and casting assistant on several Swedish projects.
A Real Poser
No surprise here. Mattson is also a model. She stands 5 feet 9-1/2 inches tall and has been represented by Next Model Management and Red Eleven Management.
Mattson was a contestant on the Swedish reality show Dropped, in which two teams of celebrities are blindfolded and dropped onto a remote location with no food, map, or help. The goal is to make their way through unforgiving landscapes in a race to find civilization.
She’s also into martial arts and yoga. Plus, she plays the piano and can sing and dance. So, who knows, there could be a Dancing With the Stars stint in her future. After all, GH is on the right network.
The Name Game
She shares the same name as Swedish wrestler Sofia Mattsson. She’s also not the only Mattsson to ever appear on General Hospital. There’s also Robin Mattson, who plays Heather Webber. Yet, she’s not related to either.
