Hera Hilmar in See

Hera Hilmar (born on December 27, 1988) is 33 years old Icelandic actress who gained popularity after playing Vanessa in “Da Vinci’s Demons,” a David S. Goyer biographical drama aired in 2013. Many people do not know that Hera was 5 when she started working as an actress. Her first performance was in a 1995 movie titled “Tears of Stone,” based on the life of an Icelandic music artist Jon Leifs.

In 2019 Hera got a chance to be part of Steven Knight’s sci-fi series “See.” In this Apple TV+ show, Hilmar appeared on-screen with actors like Jason Momoa, Archie Madekwe, and Nesta Cooper. After the first season’s release on November 1, 2019, “See” registered colossal success.

When the fans of this show learned that the makers had decided to wrap up the show in 2022, they all got sad. As promised, on August 26, the first episode of the final season came out, which everybody loved.

From Where is Hera Hilmar?

On December 27, 1988, Hera Hilmarsdóttir aka Hera Hilmar (age 33) took birth in Reykjavík, Iceland. Her father, Hilmar Oddsson, is a famous director and her mother, Thorey Sigthorsdottir, is an accomplished Icelandic actress.

Like many other girls, Hera also dreamed of becoming an engineer, dentist, or musician. In childhood, however, the foundation for her future was laid, as acting dominated her life from a very young age.

Her mom used to send her to an acting school during her Christmas break. As a child artist, she was a part of many excellent productions. The roles came one after the other, but she is exceptionally modest and says she was lucky.

Gaining Popularity

By the time Hilmarsdóttir completed schooling, she had appeared in many popular hit projects, including “No Trace” and “Tears of Stone.” After high school graduation, she wanted to try living abroad and expand her horizons. Of course, Hera didn’t know exactly what she was getting herself into but chose the most challenging path and tried to explore it.

Once she got into LAMDA, there was no turning back. The lady knew the school’s reputation was good, and her one friend was studying there, which was very encouraging. One can endlessly find reasons not to do something, but her inner voice told her to punch it.

In July 2022, Hilmar graduated from LAMDA and was offered all kinds of opportunities in her homeland, but she decided to stay in the UK and appear for auditions right away. The sense of getting a job was really empowering for her.

Soon she landed a significant role in the adventure series “Da Vinci’s Demons,” which was highly praised in the UK and USA. The show ran from 2013 to 2015 and proved a hit production. Hera revealed in an interview that she was overwhelmed and happy because of the attention she used to get after her role as Vanessa.

Hera Hilmar in Mortal Engines

Meanwhile, she also appeared in movies such as “The Fifth Estate,” “Get Santa,” “Life in a Fishbowl,” and “The Ottoman Lieutenant.” The biggest movie project that Hera got to be a part of was “Mortal Engines.” In this film, Hera starred as the tenacious and vengeful Hester Shaw, who is tempted to seek revenge against her mother’s killer, who also disfigured her face.

The film premiered worldwide and was considered into the category of “big budget” films by Hollywood standards, the production cost of which is estimated to be between 100 and 150 million dollars.

In 2019 Hilmarsdóttir became the first Icelandic actress to land a leading role in a Hollywood blockbuster, a part she never expected to play. With “See,” people worldwide witnessed how talented she is.

Personal Life of Hera Hilmar

Hilmar has a beautiful heart. She is an emotional person and considers humanity above anything. Besides being a humble human being, she is also a generous donator. There is an educational institution in Nairobi named Harvest School to which Hera provides financial help.

There is no authentic data available about Hilmar’s love life, although once she uploaded a blurred photo of a young guy, nobody knows who it was. Some say it was her boyfriend, but it is hard to say for sure without any concrete information.
