Actress, singer and writer

Elsa Saisio is a Finnish actress. She received her degree in acting from TEAK (Theatre Academy Helsinki ) in 2003. Already at the age of 11 she started as a child actress in theatre and cinema. After graduating she has played numerous leading roles e.g. in The Finnish National Theatre, Helsinki City Theatre and Tampere City Theatre. From year 2009 to 2014 she was employed by Lahti City Theatre. She has often been casted for challenging roles in classical dramas and for leading parts in musicals. Her favorite roles in drama have been Maggie in Tennessee Williams’ play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” Hedvig in Henrik Ibsen’s “The Wild Duck”, Juliet in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, Ofelia in “Hamlet” and Una in David Harrower’s play “Blackbird”. Her most important musical roles have been Sally Bowles in “Cabaret”, Velma Kelly in “Chicago”, Sheila in “Hair” and Edith Piaf in the play “Piaf”. Elsa Saisio has also acted in many Finnish feature films and TV series.
Elsa Saisio came out with a book “Katseen alaiset” (“Objects of the Gaze”) in 2004. In her book she introduces arguments of how the burden of constantly being intensely exposed to a gaze of directors, other actors and audiences forms and endangers the identity of an actress or actor. Elsa Saisio has also produced and performed as a singer in several live concerts.
