Skådespelaren Bibi Andersson är död

Bibi Andersson är död, det bekräftar vännen och regissören Christina Olofson. . – Jag fick reda på att Bibi gått bort framåt lunchtid idag, säger hon till Aftonbladet

Skådespelaren Bibi Andersson har avlidit. Hon blev 83 år.

– Hon har visserligen varit sjuk i många år, men det är ändå sorgligt. Jag fick reda på att Bibi gått bort framåt lunchtid idag, säger regissören och vännen Christina Olofsson till Aftonbladet.

Bibi Andersson debuterade redan som 15-åring och är kanske mest känd för sin medverkan i Ingmar Bergman-filmerna ”Persona” och ”Det sjunde inseglet”.

– Det är som en era går ur tiden. Det är någonting som tar slut och försvinner. Hon var en stor skådespelerska och en stor humanist. Även rent politiskt var hon oerhört engagerad. Hon arbetade för kulturen och för människan, säger Christina Olofson.

Andersson har flera gånger prisats för sina insatser på scen och film. Hon fick en Guldbagge för rollen som systern Anna i ”Persona” 1967 och fick även Guldbaggar för sina insatser i ”Det blir aldrig som man tänkt sig”, ”Elina” och ”Arn - Tempelriddaren”.

Vad har Bibi Andersson betytt för svensk film?

– Hon har betytt jättemycket för svensk film och var ju internationellt erkänd och väldigt hyllad utomlands. Hon var större än vad vi är medvetna om här hemma, säger Olofson.

Våren 2009 drabbades Bibi Andersson av en stroke, efter att ha brutit lårbenshalsen, i Frank­rike där hon då bodde med sin make. Hon flögs sedan hem till Sverige för vård och efter tiden på sjukhus har hon vårdats på Stockholms sjukhem.

Aftonbladet har varit i kontakt med hennes familj som ber om att få sörja i fred.

Bibi Andersson, Star of 13 Ingmar Bergman Films, Dies at 83
3:06 PM PDT 4/14/2019 by Scott Roxborough

Bibi Andersson, the acclaimed Swedish actress who, in more than a dozen films from Ingmar Bergman went from beatific innocence to the disillusionment of age, has died. She was 83.

Andersson's longtime friend, director Christina Olofson confirmed her death to the Swedish media on Sunday.

Andersson began acting in her teens and had a wide-ranging career in film, television and on stage but was best known for her work with Bergman. He discovered her while directing a commercial for Bris soap in 1951 and cast her four years later — in a single scene —in Smiles of a Summer Night. She would go on to appear in 13 of his movies from the 1950s through the 1980s.

Initially, Bergman cast the luminous actress as the stereotypical blonde beauty, representing girlish innocence and purity. The sun literally shone (and birds sang) every time she appeared on screen as the gentle wife and mother in The Seventh Seal (1957). In Wild Strawberries (1957) she looked like something torn out of a fairytale: a blonde-haired maiden collecting berries in the forest. Bergman, however, obviously saw more in her. In the same film, he also cast her as a pipe-smoking, sharp-tongued hitchhiker with a short-crop haircut.

She kept the short hair, and gained international recognition, in her breakout role playing nurse Alma in Bergman's Persona in 1966. Her intense performance, alongside Liv Ullmann's psychiatric patient Elisabet, earned Andersson her first of four Guldbagge Awards —Sweden's equivalent of the Oscar — and got her noticed in Hollywood. She appeared alongside James Garner and Sidney Poitier in the violent Western Duel at Diablo (1966) as a woman abducted by Apaches who, once rescued, wants to return. She played a soft-spoken psychiatrist tending to Kathleen Quinlan's teen schizophrenic in 1977's I Never Promised You a Rose Garden and Steve McQueen's wife in An Enemy of the People (1978), which Arthur Miller adapted from Henrik Ibsen's original play.

She also appeared in John Huston's The Kremlin Letter (1970) and Robert Altman's Quintet (1979). She played Richard Chamberlain’s mother (although a year younger than Chamberlain) in the 1985 mini-series Wallenberg: A Hero’s Story, about the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews from the Nazis.

But it was in Europe that Andersson spent the bulk of her career and where she was most honored for her work. She won best actress at the Cannes Film Festival in 1958 for Brink of Life — sharing the honor with her three female co-stars — and best actress at the Berlin Festival in 1963 for The Mistress. Interestingly, neither was directed by Bergmann. In the U.S., her two National Society of Film Critics awards did, however, come for Bergmann films: best actress for Personal and best supporting actress for Scenes From a Marriage (1974). In the latter playing, together with Jan Malmsjo, a constantly bickering married couple, dinner guests to the film's central pair, Andersson demonstrated how far she'd traveled from the role of a "professional innocent," as she once described, in an interview with The New York Times, her early professional persona.

In later life, Andersson appeared mainly in European TV roles, including the medieval adventure drama Arn, originally made as a mini-series, in 2010.

Her stage career included three decades of work with Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theatre, starring in classics by Shakespeare, Moliere and Chekhov, and two Broadway appearances: Full Circle in 1973 and, together with her frequent film co-star Max von Sydow, The Night of the Tribades in 1977.

Andersson also worked as a theater director in Sweden, directing several plays. During the civil war in Yugoslavia, she worked with several initiatives to bring theatre and other forms of culture to the war-battered region.

In the 1950s, Andersson was romantically linked to Bergmann. But she married three other men: the Swedish director and screenwriter Kjell Grede from 1960-1973; the politician and writer Per Ahlmark (1979-1981) and, in 2004, the Chilean doctor Gabriel Mora Baeza.

"Quintet" is quite possibly one of the worst films I have ever seen. I mean, it isn't even unintentionally hilarious in a "Zardoz" kind of way, but I'm guessing the movie studio green-lit a ice age post-apocalyptic Altman film starring Paul Newman on the heels of "Star Wars", perhaps hoping it would be some sort of thinking man's sci-fi film that would rake in tons of cash. It was about the last enclave of humanity sitting around tables playing some sort of casino-type game that involved IIRC dice and cards, and the rules of the game were never clearly laid out to the viewer. I've tried to watch it a number of times, it makes no sense whatsoever. The movie is available on the youtube, enter at your own risk.

Bibi Andersson, ‘The Seventh Seal’ and ‘Persona’ Actress, Dies at 83

Trey Williams | April 14, 2019 @ 12:47 PM

Swedish actress Bibi Andersson, known for her roles in “The Seventh Seal” and “Persona,” died on Sunday, according to Stockholm newspaper Aftonbladet. She was 83.

“She has been sick for many years, but it is sad. I found out that Bibi passed away lunchtime today,” director and friend Christina Olofsson told Aftonbladet.

According to Aftonbladet, Andersson had a stroke in 2009 while living in France with her husband Gabriel Mora Baeza. She returned to Sweden a few days later for hospital care. Shortly thereafter, she moved to a nursing home in Stockholm.

Andersson, who starred in several of writer and director Ingmar Bergman’s classic films, became well-known in the 1950’s, appearing in “The Seventh Seal” and “Wild Strawberries,” among countless other films.

She would go on to work constantly throughout the ’60s, ’70s and subsequent decades and as recently as 2007, with roles in more than 50 films such as “Persona,” “The Touch” and “Scenes From a Marriage.”

In 1968 Anderson was nominated for best foreign actress at the BAFTAs for her roles in two films: “Persona” and “Syskonbädd 1782,” or “My Sister My Love.” At the 13th Berlin International Film Festival in 1963, Andersson won the Silver Bear for best actress for her role in Vilgot Sjöman’s film “The Mistress.”
