Ingrid Gräsbeck is a London-based actor, singer, and dancer with over 6 years of acting training behind her. Since September 2022, Ingrid has been sailing around the world as a lead vocalist for Celebrity Cruises, and prior to that, she played the role of Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid as well as one of the main roles in the C More original drama series Rantabaari.
Ingrid is a graduate of both the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City as well as Royal Conservatoire of Scotland from which she received her master’s degree in Theatre. During her years of training, Ingrid has portrayed iconic roles such as Fantine (Les Misérables), Sally Bowles (Cabaret), Antigone, and Titania (A Midsummer Night’s Dream).
Since graduating, Ingrid has worked consistently on stage and screen. One of her latest film projects include the award-winning short The Odd One Out where she plays the girlfriend of the lead, Terry, who is the only one who can see colour in a society of black and white perception.
Ingrid is just as much of an adventure-seeker in life as she is in her craft. Prior to her professional acting training, she was a competitive fencer in épée and foil. One of Ingrid’s favourite skills to master for a role was a backflip in the air while simultaneously sustaining a note in Part of Your World. In her spare time, Ingrid enjoys learning French, creating content across her social media platforms and is even an avid graphic designer!
