Jasper Pääkkönen comes from a family of actors and began acting in the Finnish National Theatre and the Helsinki City Theatre when he was a child. At the age of eighteen, following his studies at The Kallio Secondary School of Performing Arts, he became part of the original cast of a daily soap, which turned out to be a huge success. At the age 20, he was selected to play the main role in BAD BOYS, the biggest box-office hit ever in Finland, for which he received the prize for Best Actor at the Brussels Film Festival in 2003. Roles in PRIVATE EYE and ADDICTION quickly followed. The film FROZEN LAND was also an international award winning festival success, winning prizes in Moscow (Jury Prize), Gothenburg (Nordic Award), Leeds (Golden Owl), and Athens (Best Script). His latest movie MATTI is his biggest and probably most important role thus far.
