Carl Larsson was born in Gamla stan, the old quarter of Stockholm, on 28 May 1853. His family was very poor and Carl grew up in dismal circumstances. The only glimmer of hope was his strong artistic talent, which emerged early on in his life. When he was thirteen years old his teacher at the school for the poor persuaded him to apply for a place at Principskolan, the preparatory department of the Art Academy.
Larsson (who also has a twin brother) was born in a small town in Sweden, and moved to Argentina in approximately 2008 to study Spanish. She first worked in a call center, and after some auditions she landed her first television appearance in 2011, on Sábado Bus hosted by Nicolás Repetto.
