Stephanie Corneliussen is one of the actresses featured in Mr. Robot – the US Network drama–thriller TV series in 2015.

Stephanie Corneliussen was born in Denmark where she spent her formative years

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, actress Stephanie Corneliussen’s date of birth is recorded as the 28th of April 1987. Her parents’ identities have remained a mystery to date but it is public knowledge that the Danish star grew up under the strict watch of her grandmother who played a big role in her foray into acting. Steph’s grandma accomplished this by feeding the youngster with fairy fiction by Hans Christian Andersen – the famous Danish writer.

She laid a solid foundation for her education at Johannesskolen in Frederiksberg. Going back to her hometown, Copenhagen, Corneliussen joined a ballet class. Though the name of her tertiary institution has never been mentioned, the actress is a degree holder majoring in graphic design.

Her early career gigs were recorded in modeling

Stephanie Corneliussen had just turned 13 when she was discovered;  this happened when the Friis Mikkelsen orchestrated Supermodel of Scandinavia contest was approaching; the teenager was encouraged to enter. The contest was organized under the auspices of a Copenhagen-based international modeling agency named Unique Models with Friis Mikkelsen as its chief executive officer.

Corneliussen emerged the winner in the context, marking the onset of her international modeling career. It goes without saying that the Danish beauty was still a student at 13, and consequently, she had to juggle both education and a modeling career. She was studying in the UK as of 2007 but relocated to California, LA, to be precise in 2011. Eventually, we saw the teenage star gracing the pages of A-list magazines such as Vanity Fair, GQ, Vogue, and a whole lot more. Corneliussen’s modeling career equally led her to score some lucrative endorsements with the likes of Armani, Bebe, Nikon, Lexus, and Dasani.

Even while she was fast making headway on the runway, the youngster soon came to terms with the fact that acting has always been a great attraction for her. Thus, she went ahead to grace the screen in a plethora of acting roles.
