Per Oscarsson

Actor

Born - 28 January 1927, Stockholm, Sweden
Died - 31 December 2010

Sharp-faced, dark-haired, incisive, somewhat eccentric Swedish actor, a major star in his native country, although one of the few leading actors of his generation not to appear frequently in films by Ingmar Bergman. He was, however, a regular on the international scene in featured roles. He made his film debut as a teenager in Ornungar (1944). Other films included The Street (1949), Wild Birds (1955) , Vaxdockan/The Doll (1962), Sult/Hunger (1966), My Sister, My Love (1966), A Dandy in Aspic (1968), The Last Valley (1971), The Night Visitor (1971), The New Land (1972), Endless Night (1972), The Assignment (1977), Montenegro (1981), Da Capo (1985), Bulan (1990), The Last Viking (1997), White Water Fury (2000), Midsummer (2003) and, latterly, two movies in the Stieg Larsson trilogy, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (both 2009). He and his wife died in a fire at their home on New Year's Eve.
