Elektra Kilbey (born on 7 June 1991) is a talented Swedish-Australian actress who has her music band as well, making her an outstanding songwriter; she has already won hearts with her vocals and heartfelt songs, and she is now moving toward the film industry.
She has had her fair share of experience in the industry, but as an actress, Elektra was recognized quite late; recently, she bagged a role in a TV series, “Shantaram,” as Lisa Carter; it is a crime/adventure that shows the life of a heroin addict who gets tangled up with mob involving Russian criminals, a part of it is also shot in Bombay. Let’s have a look at Elektra Kilbey’s journey so far.
Born on 7 June 1991, Elektra Kilbey spent her life traveling from Sydney, Australia, and Stockholm, Sweden; she was also fortunate enough to be born to well-known parents, who were artists, and turned out to be her role models as well.
Her father, Steven John Kilbey, is a singer-songwriter and bass guitarist for the rock band, The Church; her mother, Karin Jansson, was a guitarist; the couple never really got married; they were dating when they had twin daughters, Miranda Jansson-Kilbey, she is elder to Elektra by four minutes.
When the couple broke up, Karin moved to Sweden with her children, where they lived till the age of nineteen; both have music in their blood as it runs in the family, even their uncles on both sides, musicians and actors, growing up in a creative household does have its advantages and challenges; however her family does not end here as she has half-sisters too, Eve and Aurora, a set of twins and Scarlet, they were born to Steven and Natalie.
Elektra wanted a whole different career path, wanting to focus on academics, but eventually, she gave in, and by the time she was 18, she decided to follow in her family’s footsteps.
Elektra Kilbey first began her career as a singer along with her twin sister, Miranda; they were just teenagers when they uploaded their first song on SoundCloud in May 2012, and within a week, they had a record deal, the single, “Maybe You,” received immense love and fame, this launched them into the industry rather quickly.
A year later, the duo formed their own record label, à Deux, and started their band, “Say Lou Lou,” formerly known as Saint Lou Lou; they specialize in the genre Dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock and neo-psychedelia, their band made the BBC Sound of 2014 longlist.
Within the course of three years, the band released five singles, made their debut with a studio album called “Lucid Dreaming,” and by 2018, the duet released their second record, “Immortelle.”
For Elektra, it was a fantastic experience; her music career got such a quick boost; she also had the chance to feature in several of their music videos, which helped her express what she felt and let out her creative side; it was like making short films, this helped her improve her acting skills as well.
The duo also had fantastic tours in the US and were loved by a large audience; they did leave an impression in their minds.
Now coming to her acting career, which began way back in 2000, it was a small role in a comedy/drama, “Gossip,” her sister was a part of this as well; she left acting and returned nine years later, with a short video, “Joywave -Obsession,” as an Exotic Dancer, she has some noteworthy music videos, like, “Golden Child,” and “Immortelle.”
Apart from her songs, she has been a part of an Amazon Prime series, “Tales from the Loop,” where she had a short role as Alma, but quite an impactful one; she later starred in two movies, “Odd Man Rush,” and “Staying.”
