Heart to Heart: The Brother & Sister
In 2001 Felix Gradin got the best Christmas present he could imagine: his own little sister Milla. Ever since that day the two have been inseparable.
Felix and Milla Gradin, brother and sister.
TAKE US BACK TO WHEN YOU TWO FIRST MET!
“Milla was born the day before Christmas Eve 2001. I was only three, but I remember when our mother went to the hospital and came back with my brand-new baby sister. It was a very warm and cosy Christmas that year.”
“Milla and I have been close from the very beginning. Somehow, it’s always been her and me. We’ve always told each other everything.”
DEFINE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THREE WORDS.
“Loving, humorous, open.”
TELL US ABOUT A DETAIL WITH YOUR SISTER THAT YOU SECRETLY LOVE.
“Milla has always gone her own way. I think that might have given her some problems with school and with our parents, but I admire her strong will. She always says what she thinks and stands up for her opinions and needs. I’m a lot shyer, but she inspires me to be more straightforward.”
Somehow, it’s always been her and me. We’ve always told each other everything.
WHEN DOES YOUR BROTHER DRIVE YOU CRAZY?
“I hate it when Felix laughs at me when I’m angry, in this superior big brother kind of way. In these moments I hate feeling like the little sister I am, it really annoys me.”
TELL US ABOUT A MEMORY THAT YOU KEEP CLOSE TO YOUR HEART.
“I remember how Felix would come say good night to me when we were kids. He’d kiss my forehead and lift my legs to tuck me into the blanket like a cocoon. And then he’d say ‘Good night, little Milla’. That’s something that will stay with me for a very long time.”
