Stop explaining yourself. Shut up and act!

Bjorn Backman moved from Norway to the US in 2013 to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. However, he didn’t fully get into it until 2018 when he began studying under Disco San Andreas at The American Actors Factory. Since then, Bjorn has appeared on stage, film and in commercials. He was first cast in The Miracle Worker at Valencia College, where he also studied acting, film and screenwriting. He hopes to use his passion in martial arts (black belt) as a steppingstone into more areas of acting. He is a go-getter, who left his friends and family behind to become the actor he’s always dreamt of being.

Fun fact: I took a pause halfway through to go shave in order to have more looks!
