About Timo

I have always loved to enlargen my skills in every possible field of the profession. That is why, along with studies in Finnish Theatre Academy, I have studied editing and directing in the Finnish film school and writing in several courses. I have made more than 50 roles in long features and television films and as much roles on stage. I have also worked several years in France as actor.
Most well known I might be from my roles in Pekka Parikka's ”Winter war” (1990) as private Pentti Saari and from Mika Kaurismäki's ”Three wise men”(2006) as Rauno and two episodes of french television series ”Maigret”(1994-96) as inspector Ari Vaara with Bruno Cremer in the main role. My most important theatre roles are probably Dimitri in ”Les tentations d'Aljosha” (The temptations of Aljosha, based on The Karamazov brothers by Dostojevski) Pantathéâtre, France 2012-14 and Andrei in Checkhov's ”Three sisters” directed by Lauri Maijala, KOM-theatre, Finland 2012. I have also worked several times in the Finnish National Opera, the latest work there was Frosch's role in ”Die Fledermaus” (The Bat) directed by Marco Marelli, 2014. Still looking for new opportunities and challenges.

  • The Girl King

    The Girl King (2015)
    Film by Mika Kaurismäki (Biography and Drama) Actor An enigmatic young woman in conflict - torn between reason and passion; between her woman's body and being raised as a prince; between the ancient and modern worlds and between the brilliance of her educated mind and the conservative forces around her. Crowned Queen at the age of six, Kristina of Sweden was thrust into a labyrinth of power and tradition, where a court of austere, Lutheran men pressure her to marry and produce an heir to fulfill her destiny. She finds sanctuary and love with her lady-in-waiting, the beautiful and elegant, countess Ebba Sparre, although the Chancellor, Axel Oxenstierna, pressures her to pair with his son, Johan. Soon the forces around the Queen realize that Ebba is the key to controlling her, but they underestimate Kristina's brilliant mind and her drive to be free. Written by Triptych Media Inc.
