However, Stephanie soon felt drawn toward acting and decided to give it a go – taking both acting classes at UCLA before graduating with honors in 2009.
She appeared in several short-lived series such as ‘The Rebels’, ‘Royal Pains’, ‘Bad Judge” and “The Exes”, but nothing truly catapulted her until landing Joanna Wellick on USA Network’s hit drama Mr. Robot in 2014.
The show quickly made her a household name and helped her secure roles in multiple other television series and movies.
Corneliussen hails from Copenhagen, Denmark where she was born on April 28th, 1987. Although her parents remain unknown to her, she credits her grandmother as having played an influential role in her decision to enter acting by encouraging her to read Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytales as she started reading them at an early age. Later she studied graphic design at Johannesskolen Frederiksberg where she received a degree.
As a model, she has appeared in iconic publications like Playboy and Vogue as well as advertising campaigns from Lexus, Nikon, and Bebe. Additionally, she had a brief stint in the music industry when she appeared in Matchbox Twenty’s music video for She’s So Mean in 2012.
As part of her acting career, she has appeared in independent films and television films like ‘The Exes’, ‘Royal Pains’, ‘Bad Judge” and “The Rebels.” More recently she appeared as Valentina Vostok on the DC television series Legends of Tomorrow which is a spin-off from Arrow and The Flash; currently, it’s in its third season and already received several nominations. Still finding time for family, friends, and photography despite her hectic schedule is something she manages effortlessly.

Corneliussen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark on April 28th, 1987 to unknown parents who remain unknown to this day. She attended Johannesskolen in Frederiksberg where she graduated with a degree in graphic design. Following this degree she moved to LA with the hope of becoming an actress or model.
At first, she made headlines as Joanna Wellick in USA Network’s conspiracy thriller series Mr. Robot. On the show she is shown as an ambitious trophy wife married to Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallstrom), Elliot Alderson’s archnemesis; however, she can also be manipulative and cruel, though her compassionate side comes through occasionally.
Realistically, she enjoys those intimate moments in bed where she can let go and surrender completely; in real life and on set!

Unfortunately, Joanna was written off the show after its third season concluded and although she understood why her character deserved death, it still left an impactful mark on her as an actress – yet another experience that helped to further develop both as an artist and to bring new depth and vibrancy to Gabrielle Xavier on FX’s Legion.
