Actor | En man som heter Ove
He started acting school in Malmö and went from there to the Skånska Teatern in Landskrona, performing in plays by Shakespeare or Brecht. He made a breakthrough as Puck in William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer's Night Dream'. He also met his wife Birgitta there. The 1990s meant a lot of work in front ...
Rolf Holger Lassgård, born March 29, 1955 in Östersund, is, according to me, Sweden's best actor. He studied acting at Stage School in Malmö (1975-78), there Lassgård met the director Peter Oskarson and joined his Skånska Teatern theatre company in Landskrona. There he drew attention as Puck in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream (1979-1980). The big breakthrough for the Swedish bio public came with Min store tjocke far (1992). But he is probably best known for the role of Erik in Jägarna (1996), or as Kurt Wallander in the SVT TV-movie adaptations of the Henning Mankell novels from 1994–2007. Myself have seen him with my mother in Brothers Karamazov (2011), where he was brilliant as Dimitr on Stockholms Stadsteater. And I have also seen him in the shameful set of Utvandrarna (2014) on The Royal Dramatic Theatre. Becouse after a very interesting first act, did nothing happens in the 2:and act.
2. Allan Edwall
Actor | Emil och griseknoen
Allan Edwall was born in a working class home in Jämtland, Sweden in 1924. His father was a trade-union man and a communist. 1949-52 he attended Stockholm's Royal Daramatic Theatre School. Through the years he made more than 400 parts in theater, film, television and radio. He was also a director, ...
Johan Allan Edwall, born August 25, 1924 in Hissmofors, worked almost all the way until he died in Rödöns, February 7, 1997. He was indeed an actor with a very personal appearance, and his great popular breakthrough came with the TV dramatization of August Strindbergs Hemsöborna (1966), where he played the tragicomic stallboy Carlsson. He was also involved in almost all films that was made between 1971 and 1984 from the books of the children´s auther Astrid Lindgren's. So, for me, who grew up with her books, is Edwall then best known as Anton, the father of Emil i Lönneberga (1971), Skorpan Lejonheart's stepfather Mattias in Bröderna Lejonhjärta (1977), Madickens neighbor's uncle Nilsson in Du är inte Klok, Madicken (1979) and Madicken på Junibacken (1980), the tramp Paradis-Oskar in Rasmus på Luffen (1981) and the old robber Skalle-Per in Ronja Rövardotter (1984).
3. Gösta Ekman
Actor | Mannen som slutade röka
His career began with a bit part at Skansenteatern in Hjalmar Bergman's play 'Markurells i Wadköping' in 1955. The following year he debuted in the movie Swing it, fröken (1956) playing against Alice Babs. He got speech lessons from actress Sif Ruud and worked behind the camera in his father's...
Hans Gösta Gustaf Ekman (the younger), born July 28, 1939 in Stockholm, is the third generation in a family of prominent Swedish actors. First in the line was his paternal grandfather, also named Gösta Ekman, followed by his father Hasse Ekman, a successful film director and actor. And by several Swedish film critics (and by me), is Ekman ranked as Sweden's best comedian. And if you think anything else, after seeing his acting as Charles Ingvar in the Jonsonligan films (1981-1989), or what he did with the comic duo Hasse & Tage, then you are really stupid. He has also made many things, comedy Yes, his carrier includes a number of genres. As for example, has he starred as the famous fictional Swedish policeman Martin Beck. He also did a lot of work whit Marie-Louise Ekman who he married in 1989. He has also directed at The Royal Dramatic Theater.

Per Oscar Heinrich Oscarsson, born January 28, 1927 in Kungsholm's parish in Stockholm, is without a doubt one of Sweden's top five actors. He took theater lessons at Gösta Terserus and falsified his stepmother's signature to enter the Dramat's student school in 1944. For the Swedish public, he became well-known when he on the day after Christmas in 1966 undressed to his underwear in the swedish TV-show Hylland Hörna. There he held an improvised monologueabout sex education, which the TV-host Hyland was completely unprepared for. It led to Swedish television's first so-called viewer storm. For me, he is mainly known as Gränsemyr in the SVT´s julkalender Håll Huvudet Kalltt (1994) and for the role of the made up grandfather to Berra in Kan Du Vissla Joanna? (1994). Unfortunately perished both Oscarsson and his wife when their home was completely destroyed in a fire on the night between December 30 and 31 in 2010.
Actor | Riget
One of Swedish theatre's most well known actors. Järegård is appreciated for his extrovert and at the same time controlled style of acting, of which he gladly characterized comic or morbid characters. He played the title role in 'Moliére''s "Tartuffe" as well as Orgon (The Royal Dramatic Theatre, ...
Ernst-Hugo Alfred Järegård, born 12 December 1928 in Ystad, deserves his place as Sweden's fifth best male actor on this list. Because, throughout his over 40-years long acting career, so did he almost devote all his woken time to the theater (most on The Royal Dramatic Theater), and his wife Karin Nordström (1949–1998). In the film about Ernst-Hugo Järegård (1998), can we for example her from his colleague Helena Bergström that he should have cut down a piece when he realized that he would not be able to get home to Karin from the workplace. So Karin was his safe arms. Given the current debate about sexual harassment inside The Royal Dramatic Theater (in 2019), is it really interesting that Järegård never felt safe or properly cared for within walls of te teater . Yes, despite the successes with I väntan på Godot (1966), Vildanden, directed by Ingmar Bergman (1972), as with Rickard III (1980) and VD (1987), so did he left in the early 1990s without a rightful thank-you.

Lars Ingvar Hirdwall, born 5 December 1934, in Stockholm was educated at Gothenburg City Theater stage school 1957-1960. Since the early 1960s has he been active as an actor in many films, TV-series and on several theatrical stages. Mainly has he been on Stockholms stadsteater where I saw him in Revisorn (2002).When the action begins, a house opens up and the scene is framed by huge bookshelves with dusty books. In a letter, the small town's mayor (Ingvar Hirdwall) reads that an auditor is on the way to inspect how the administration is managed. But it are not on the teater stage that he is most famous. No, for the general public is he best known was the whiskey-drinking neighbor police commissioner Martin Beck. This came to my mind when I and my mother sat and drank coffee with a plate of cheese and fig jam, during the break of the Revisorn (2002). Because to two ladies who sat at a table next to us was surprised over that Hirdwall had one of the play's main roles. Myself however would had been terribly disappointed if he only had a minor contribution.
