Mina Sundwall was born and raised in New York City. Being half Swedish and half Italian, Mina has spent part of her childhood in Europe and speaks Spanish, French and Swedish.
Mina landed her first role at just eight-months-old as a kidnapped baby, but her more recent credits include a guest-starring role on Law & Order: SVU, and film credits in the teen thriller movie #HORROR, FREEHELD with Ellen Page and Steve Carrell, and MAGGIE’S PLAN with Julianne Moore and Ethan Hawke. MAGGIE’SPLAN debuted at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival before screening at the New York FilmFestival, Sundance Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival as well as enjoying theatrical release.
Along with her love for film, Mina’s passion is children, and she hopes to leverage her own story to promote multiculturalism, bridge differences and advocate for a more inclusive world.
