Yasmin Finney as Elle Argent in Heartstopper

Heartstopper Actress Yasmin Finney Wiki | Bio

18 years old Yasmin Finney (born on August 30, 2003) is a trans woman female artist whose popularity increased exponentially after the release of “Heartstopper,” a Netflix series on April 22.

It is based on Alice Oseman’s graphic novel, which portrays the love story of two young schoolboys named Charlie Spring (Joe Locke) and Nick Nelson (Kit Connor). Yasmin performed the role of Elle Argent, one of Charlie’s best friends who gave him advice on how to approach Nick.

In an interview with Attitude magazine, Yasmin revealed that she could relate herself to the character she played. She also expressed how helpful Oseman was during the shooting for the show, and she helped to stay calm and be natural.

It seems like the girl earned herself a best friend in William Gao, and even days after the release of the series, they were spotted together hanging out. Finney is best known for her viral TikTok videos in which she discusses her experiences growing up as a trans woman in Manchester. Over 12 million people have seen her videos.

Birthday and Childhood

On August 30, 2003, Yasmin Finney (age 17 years) took birth in Manchester, United Kingdom, at her father and mother’s home. There is not much data about her family, but we found a childhood image from her Twitter in which Finney can be seen sitting on a chair.

Finney’s role in “Heartstopper” is of a young black trans girl, which she said she could compare to herself. Growing up, Yasmine faced racism and hate from homophobic people, which at one point affected her mental health.


Yasmin Finney career

TikTok And First Acting Job

Yaz’s clip on her TikTok account was on May 30, 2019, with the caption, “This audio gives me so much confidence! I’m so grateful that some boys understand.” That video, at present, has more than 1 million views and 157k likes. But the video that got viral was a makeup tutorial that she shared on March 3, 2020, and it has around 9.9 million views.

The journey to becoming an actress was not very smooth for her. Once she decided to become an actress, she joined The Sackville Theatre. Here she practiced for years and worked in popular stage shows like “DNA,” “Port,” “Antigone,” “Tie,” “Page to Stage.”

Not only Sackville, but she also performed for The Waterside Theatre and The Royal Exchange Theatre. She struggled for years to get a significant role in a movie/show, and it came in 2022 when she got to work with Euros Lyn.
