About Soraja

Soraja Trigo is a Swiss actress, producer and writer. Her unique heritage, boasting Italian and Portuguese roots, has equipped her with the ability to speak several languages fluently, including Swiss German, German, Italian, and English, as well as a bit of Portuguese and Spanish. Her journey in the world of performing arts began in her youth, where she started with theater and dance performances. She appeared in numerous smaller and larger productions before making the decision to further her knowledge in acting at the prestigious Susan Batson Studio in New York and the Stage Academy of Switzerland.

In 2013, Soraja landed her first movie role in "Dreamland," directed by Petra Volpe, starring Ursina Lardi and Luna Mijovic. Her talent and dedication to her craft led to more opportunities, including playing Maria in the 3Plus production "Bernegger & Juric -Die Kommissare" alongside Gilles Tschudi. She also showcased her acting prowess in other features and short films such as "Zurich 8001," "Rewind," and "Polder," where she took on lead or supporting roles. Notably, the short film "Pick Me," in which she starred, garnered several awards at international festivals.

Not content with just acting, Soraja ventured into film production at the end of 2023, producing her first short film. Additionally, she took on the role of Cobrea, the evil stepsister, in the play "Cinderella" at the beginning of 2024.
