Did You Know?
I've worked with really great female directors in Sweden, too. It's funny, because "The Killing" has really been a strongly female-driven show. The producers, the show runner, the lead: they're all women. I have a Jewish mother and five sisters and all my representation but one are women, so my life is run by strong women.
Joel's paternal grandparents were David H. Kinnaman, from Perry Township, Marion County, Indiana, and Rosalie L. (Mitchell), from Kansas City, Kansas. Joel's father's ancestry includes German, English, Scottish, and Irish. Joel's mother is of Swedish Jewish background (she is descended from Ukrainian Jewish immigrants to Sweden).
