Every time I’m in Canada I feel more Swedish, and every time I’m in Sweden I feel more Canadian. I belong in both places and I love them both equally.
I tend to get a lot of scripts in which people want me to play the trophy wife, which is frustrating because I want the interesting, meaty roles.
Malin Akerman moved to Canada when she was only two years old but she speaks Swedish fluently and celebrates all Swedish holidays.
Akerman speaks four languages: English, Swedish, French and Spanish.
Malin made her acting debut on the Canadian science fiction series Earth: Final Conflict in 1997 (she played a very attractive robot).

In 2008 Malin Ranked #59 on the Maxim magazine “Most Attractive” 100 list.
Akerman in one sentence – Akerman is a lovely Swedish actress that has no problem with saying what is on her mind.
Always remember that true beauty comes from within.
