Though you’d never know it from her Kiwi accent, Sia Trokenheim began acting in her native Sweden while she was still a child. In 2001 she relocated to New Zealand. Four years later she got her Kiwi screen break, playing the title role in low-budget thriller Luella Miller. In 2014 she won a Moa award for fractured family drama Everything We Loved; she also began starring in the first of two seasons of Step Dave, as a 30-something mother who dates a 24-year-old barman, despite the disapproval of her daughters. In 2017 she co-starred in Indian-NZ missing person drama Beyond the Known World, and family movie Kiwi Christmas.
