Watch: Digital cover star Alisha Boe on childhood, acting obsessions and her ancestral Norwegian roots

By Vogue Scandinavia's Video Team

She's the breezy and spirited Californian 'valley girl' we know and love. Here, the LA-based talent – and latest Vogue Scandinavia digital cover stars – takes us back to the small Norwegian island of Bø where it all began

“At the end of the day I’m Norwegian and Somali and I grew up in the Valley. Those three things can co-exist all at the same time, because that is just my make-up,” says Alisha Boe in a candid interview for Vogue Scandinavia's latest digital cover. The LA-based acting talent – who is enjoying a thrilling ascent owing to recent career-making roles in 13 Reasons Why and The Buccaneers may be drenched in Californian sun, but the links and roots of her identity are just as much a part of her character today.


Here, Boe takes us back to where it all began for her: to her childhood “obsession” with acting, her early years in Scandinavian, and her ancestral links to the tiny Norwegian island of Bø.
