Sofia Mattsson, also known as Sasha Gilmore on General Hospital, speaks flawless English. But many of her fans may not know that she had to take learn how to talk without an accent. Mattson was originally from Sweden. She moved to the United States to pursue a passion for acting just like her sister, Helena Mattsson.
Mattson said her sister came to the U.S for a job as an actress. Back then, she recalled how she constantly visited Helena and saw her filming. She found it interesting and wanted to try her luck in the entertainment industry.
“I got a visa, came here and started modeling and acting,” Mattsson said.
The actress admitted that she had to master the language before she landed the role of Sasha on “General Hospital.”
“So I definitely had to work on it — a lot. I started off only playing Swedish and Russian trolls!” she shared.
When asked what the secret to her success is, she joked, “Speaking English and not hanging out with Swedish friends. Just listening and practicing!”
