Career[edit]

Jacobson was born 2 August 1949 in Copenhagen, Denmark. She moved to the UK in the early 1970s, studying at the London Film School circa 1971 and developing a curious Copenhagen/Cockney accent along the way. Represented by Barrie Stacey Promotions, during her British acting career, she appeared in John Jesnor Lindsay's film The Hot Girls (1974) a fake expose on the modelling world. More mainstream work included guest appearances in The Sweeney and The Goodies, several roles in British sex comedies and Carry On Behind (1975). Helli was also active on stage appearing in a touring production of Hair in 1974 and in the stage farce Pyjama Tops (circa 1973) where co-stars included Fiona Richmond, Jess Conrad and Lucienne Camille.

Aside from her acting career Jacobson was also the managing director of a clothing firm, and worked in the music industry managing a band called Ix. After a role in 1979’s The World Is Full of Married Men, she left acting to pursue work in the music industry full-time, and has since worked for Harvey Goldsmith.
