Felisha Cooper

Actress Felisha Cooper found fame as both a bona fide bad girl on the daytime soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful" (CBS, 1987- ) and as the comic foil for an eccentric private investigator on the series "Swedish Dicks" (Pop 2016- ). Born into a military family in Fayetteville, North Carolina on September 8, 1992, Cooper was discovered by an agent three weeks after moving to Los Angeles, California to pursue an acting career, and made her television debut with a walk-on role on a 2012 episode of the Nickelodeon kids' series "Big Time Rush" (2008-2013). From there, Cooper worked steadily in supporting and guest roles on television, including the biopic "Whitney" (Lifetime 2012), about singer Whitney Houston, and in the occasional feature like the straight-to-video slasher "All Cheerleaders Die" (2013). Two years later, she landed her breakout role on "The Bold and the Beautiful" (CBS, 1987- ) as Sasha Thompson, an aspiring model who threw one of the series' primary families, the Avants, into chaos through her grasping and underhanded attempts to join their ranks. Cooper quickly elevated to fan-favorite status during her two years on the daytime soap, and remained a recurring member of the cast while also lighting out to pursue other projects in 2017. Among these was "Swedish Dicks," a comedy starring and created by actor Peter Stormare about a pair of unlicensed Scandinavian private eyes working in Los Angeles, with Cooper co-starring as Sarah, a headstrong lawyer and Stormare's estranged daughter. The series was renewed for its third season in 2018.
