Numero Russia: What is your real name?
Sif: My real name is Hrafnhildur Sif I was named after my grandmother; it means Raven Battle. I go by Sif since it’s very hard to pronounce in English.
Numero Russia: You are from Iceland, a wonderful place on Earth, where I found peace at a level that is hardly known by the fast pace industry we work in. Do you like your origins?
Sif: Yes I am very proud to be from Iceland! For me it’s the air there when I step out of the airport I feel like I can breath again.

Numero Russia: How were you able to settle with a life in "the fastline" to work the cinema and fashion industry at such a young age?
Sif: It was a lot when I first started... I’m a planner and I like my routine so getting last minute jobs or having to fly somewhere the same day would have me spinning in circles. But now I can manage it I’m always prepared to expect the unexpected.
Numero Russia: Do you prefer cinema or fashion? And why?
Sif: I think both are amazing, modeling is definitely my first love. It’s where I learned how to discover other parts of me and learn how to express myself. I think that cinema allows me to express myself even more because not only can I show my characters emotions but I get to speak and work with other people.

Numero Russia: Where do you find inspiration?
Sif: I’m not really sure how to answer that, I find that working with other people inspires me. I’m really lucky because I am constantly meeting new people and traveling to new places.
Numero Russia: How important is family for your personal and professional life?
Sif: Family is very important in both, I don’t think that I would be able to do what I do if I didn’t have the support of my family. They always have my back and push me to do better. My friends are also my family; I don’t have a whole bunch of friends, but there friends I can rely on.

Numero Russia: Our Numero Russia shoot happened while you were on set for the movie FERAL STATE we could not help but register the adrenaline and feel inspired by it. You have an important role this movie, with your agent and executive producers Marianne & Nick Tamposi. Would you like a moment to talk about your character?
Sif: My character’s name is Lexi and she is a bit more tough than Sif is. She tends to be pretty tough because she has to. She is a part of a make shift family where she’s relied on to make a majority of the money. She’s strong because she has to be, she only relays on her brother and herself.
Numero Russia: How is it working with two strong male actors such as Ronnie and Octavio?
And how are they inspiring you?
Sif: Ronnie and Octavio are incredible actors, I feel incredibly lucky to work with them. Not only are they dedicated to their craft they are also extremely kind and intelligent. They are always willing to help me out when I need it and I am extremely grateful for that. Watching them act or being in a scene with them I feel like I’m slowly learning how they get into character and how they work. It’s fantastic!

Numero Russia: Do you dedicate time to good causes in this world? If so... Could you tell us how?
Sif: I feel like everyday people should be dedicating time to help the world. I try my best to do small good deeds everyday. I am always being kind and open to every person I meet. I think that’s a good place to start.
Special thanks to Marianne and Nicholas Tamposi for the access to their central Florida ranch and beautiful horses which became a substantial part of our story.
