The Swedish actress Bibi Andersson, known for her roles in several films of director and compatriot Ingmar Bergman, died this Sunday at 83, according to her daughter Jenny Grede Dahlstrand told the agency Afp.
The actress, who started working with Bergman when she was only 15 years old in ads for the Bris soap brand, starred in some classics of the legendary filmmaker such as 'The Seventh Seal' (1957), 'Wild Strawberries' (1957) and 'Persona' (1966).
Born in Stockholm in 1935, she was, in addition to an actress, director of film, theater and television. Together with Liv Ullmann, Ingrid Thulin and Harriet Andersson, she was one of the most linked performers of Bergman's career, with whom she obtained her greatest achievements in the film industry, in addition to sharing a romantic relationship for a while. They separated after Persona, but collaborated again on the feature films Passion, The Woodworm and Secrets of a Marriage.
His first film credits came in 1951 and he continued working and starring in films until 2009, when he suffered a stroke that paralyzed one side of his body.
His daughter explained that Andersson left a mark on the lives of many people. "It leaves a great void for each one of us who had the privilege of being close to her."
