Our owner, Emilia was featured in the “career section” of Glamour Magazine, Sweden. Here is the article, translated.
“I’m developing my idea for television”
What started as a journalist visa resulted in college and a new career. There was a time when Emilia Lindgren, 34, was running around Los Angeles going to auditions. She was cast as the lead in a movie only to be replaced by a more famous actress only two weeks before shooting. “That’s how it is in Hollywood – you are tossed around like a glove. You have to have a certain personality to put up with it and I don’t really” says Emilia. Today she operates a children’s party planning company. She dresses up as several different princesses from fairytales and puts on shows for children. “I got my first customers through personal connections and then through positive word of mouth it became my full time profession”. Her goal is to take the entertainment a step further. “I have developed a TV-show for children” she said. Cindy Crawford and Reese Witherspoon are only a few of the celebrities Emilia has performed for. “One of the wildest jobs I’ve done was when I entertained the kids of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee backstage at a Motley Crue concert. And when I was at Steven Spielberg’s house he filmed my whole performance up close with his personal camera. So you could say (jokingly) I’ve been in a Spielberg movie”.
Emilia has career advice for young Swedes wanting to come to Los Angeles.
– Head out to Los Angeles with courage, intelligence and a drive of steel!
– Hollywood has a dark side and there are lots of drugs. Find the spiritual side of LA instead.
– Apply to the Green Card lottery. You cannot work without a green card in America.
