What is Heida Reed's ethnicity? She's actually from Iceland.

Although she is known internationally as Heida Reed, the actress's real name is Heiða Rún Sigurðardóttir. She adopted her stage name early in her modeling career and kept it as she transitioned into acting. Heida hails from Breiðholt, Reykjavik, in Iceland, and was raised by her parents alongside two siblings.

Heida's father works as a music teacher while her mother works as a dental hygienist. At just 18 years old, the budding star was recruited by an Icelandic modeling agency and quickly saw her career take off. She then moved to Mumbai, India, where she lived for roughly two years and worked as a model. Around the age of 20, Heida relocated yet again, this time to London, where she opted to study drama at the Drama Centre London, and graduated in 2010.

Although the couple endearingly refer to one another as "husband" and "wife" on social media, there are no records of a marriage license in either the U.S. or in Heida's home nation of Iceland, so it seems the two are still engaged. They also don't have any children together yet.
