Fanny "Faye" Matilda Dagmar Hamlin (born October 23, 1987 in Stockholm, Sweden) is a Swedish singer and model. She is one of the original members of the Swedish pop group Play. Faye was selected to be in Play by the band's manager, Laila Bagge. Bagge held a nationwide talent search after finding Anna Sundstrand and Anaïs Lameche and chose Faye and her best friend Rosanna Munter for her new girl group. Faye was considered to be the lead voice of Play and, as a mezzo-soprano, she was often heard singing the melody and doing the ad-libs in songs.

Play sold over 1 million albums and toured North America along with popular teen artists, such as A*Teens, Aaron Carter and *NSync. Faye left Play in October, replaced by Janet Leon. Faye (now known by her birth name, Fanny) attended Sweden's best music school, Rytmus, once she had left Play. Since leaving Play, Fanny has done further modeling work and has recorded a duet with Swedish singer Adam Appel, "Ready For Love," that was featured in the soundtrack to the 2004 Swedish documentary film Kärlekens Språk (The Language of Love). In early 2006, Fanny signed with Synk Casting, a Swedish modeling agency and modeled for them.

She provides backing vocals for Swedish dance-pop singer Velvet's song "Mi Amore". She sang a cover of the song "Go Your Own Way" in a Swedish MQ commercial in 2007; both the song and commercial can be found on Youtube. Fanny was also involved in a charity single for MQ, a cover of Supertramp's "Give A Little Bit" in 2008, as well as featuring in the commercial. She has performed at several Swedish music festivals in addition to continuing her education.

Fanny studied fashion and worked in various clothing stores to try and get a job into the fashion industry. In 2009, Swedish music group Play was reunited as a trio with Fanny Hamlin, Anaïs Lameche, and a new member, Sanne Karlsson via the popular Swedish TV program, Made In Sweden. Whilst with Play they achieved a no.1 single, "Famous" and a top ten album "Under My Skin". The comeback was a success, but since late September, Fanny had stopped making appearances with Play, nor going to promote their music as they were planning there comeback to the US. In January 2011, it was officially announced that Fanny had left Play, and would be replaced by Emelie Norenberg. Fanny is now writing and recording a solo album with Swedish producer duo, Montauk.
