Petra Areskoug was born and raised in Gothenburg Sweden. Her interest in the performing arts and movies started very early on which led to performing in school plays and sketches that she wrote herself. As her passion grew stronger she wanted to pursue her dream of acting in comedies, preferably directed by Woody Allen. Her parents wouldn't hear any of it before she got a ¨real education." After her last semester at the University of Gothenburg, she chose to do her fieldwork in NYC so she could find the acting school that she was planning to attend as soon as her studies were finished. The day after graduating she was on a plane to Los Angeles to pursue her dream. While pursuing acting, she came in contact with Adam Marcus and became a part of Damn Skippy Theatreworks, which has led her to broaden her passion for film. As of today she is also producing and editing.
