The Mighty Dragon podcast with Maria Erwolter #1899

Following on from my last 1899 interview with Alexandrew Willaume, I have another one for you! This time with multi-talented actress Maria Erwolter, who starred as Iben in the smash-hit Netflix series.

Maria, shares her thoughts on her character Iben and the breath-taking twists and turns of the series. We discuss what characters she enjoys portraying and which genre she’d like to experience.

From The Ritual to 1899, this actress keeps extending her range of characters and lighting up our screens. With a busy family life, Maria keeps grounded with meditation and most impressively paying it forward to the next generation of actors.

Thank you to Maria for this interview, may I wish you all the best for Christmas and 2023!
