Amy Deasismont Leads Thunder In My Heart

Viaplay has announced eight-part comedy drama Thunder In My Heart, created by Swedish actress and singer Amy Deasismont (Gösta) who is also set to take the lead role.

Thunder In My Heart follows a group of young friends as they come of age and strive to meet the unexpected demands of adult life while coming to terms with their own identities, pasts, and passions.

The cast includes Alexander Abdallah (Snabba Cash), Malin Persson (The Restaurant), Max Ulveson (Dancing Queens), Gustaf Hammarsten (Midnight Sun) and Helen Sjöholm (As It Is in Heaven).

Amy Deasismont said: “Life as a young adult brings both exhilarating highs and painful lows. I want Viaplay viewers to feel every moment of this story, and it’s a dream come true to bring it to life with such a wonderful creative team and cast.”

Viaplay Chief Content Officer, Filippa Wallestam, added: “Our latest original goes straight to the heart – and comes from the same place. Amy Deasismont has worked on Thunder In My Heart for five years and this highly personal, character-driven drama will speak to audiences of all ages.”

Thunder In My Heart begins filming in Stockholm this month and will premiere on Viaplay across the Nordic region in Spring 2021.
