RAKSHA.

HOOST

Actress

Hi!

I'm a professional actress with an international scope, based in London. I've played in various TV series, plays, and commercials. Currently, I'm touring with my own storytelling show 'Dr. Jekyll and Miss Hyde' (English) in The Netherlands. In 2021, this show will be performed in London. 

I was born in beautiful Surinam in South America and grew up in The Netherlands.  I am mixed-race (Creole, Indian, Chinese, Dutch) and speak Dutch, English (proficient), Spanish, French and German (basic). My love for martial arts has resulted in two boxing fights in the ring, two belts in Shaolin kung fu and sufficient training in kickboxing. 

 

I embrace my method acting skills. Getting to know my character, having the guts to take on that emotional journey, and searching for that absolute truth. Love the challenge. Any day. Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to work with André Landzaat (Strasberg, Actor's Studio New York), and Tom Radcliffe, a former student of Sanford Meisner. 

I love portraying strong female characters who are flawed in their own way. The actors I love watching myself? Viola Davis, Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts. 

So, let's talk! And if your name is Lynne Ramsay, even a 'hello' will keep me going for years.
