Anita Olatunji – Quicksand

Anita is co-starring as Barbara Collins, the only English-speaking role in this original Swedish series based on Malin Person Giolito’s best-selling award-winning novel Quicksand.

Barbara Collins is a successful American economics lecturer who was invited by one of the wealthy parents, the father of the mysterious Sebastian, to give a talk at the private school in Stockholm before the shooting takes place. She encourages the students and parents visiting her lecture to critically view Sweden’s economy and its possible failings towards the working class. 

 The series is directed by Per-Olav Sørensen (Nobel, The Saboteurs) and Lisa Farzaneh (Arne Dahl, Det som göms i snö), written by Camilla Ahlgren (The Bridge, Marcella), produced by FLX Productions and will debut on Netflix in 2019.

After a mass shooting at a prep school in Stockholm’s wealthiest suburb, high-school student Maja Norbert, played by our client Hanna Ardéhn, finds herself on trial for murder. As they reveal the details of that tragic day, it also reveals private details about her relationship with Sebastian Fagerman and his dysfunctional family.

FLX, the trio of Felix Hergren, Pontus Edgren & Niclas Carlsson, have in a short time become of Scandinavia’s fasted growing production companies.
