Andersson, Bibi

▪ Swedish actress
original name  Birgitta Andersson  
born November 11, 1935, Stockholm, Sweden

      Swedish actress noted primarily for her appearance in films by Ingmar Bergman (Bergman, Ingmar).

      Andersson studied acting at Stockholm's highly regarded Royal Dramatic Theatre, the school that had earlier produced Greta Garbo. She had made a few small film appearances and was acting on stage when discovered by Bergman, who asked her to appear in Sommarnattens leende (1955; Smiles of a Summer Night). This initial role led to critical acclaim and a number of complex roles in other Bergman films. She received a Cannes Film Festival award for her work in Nära livet (1958; Brink of Life), though her most highly acclaimed role was as the complex nurse in Persona (1966).

      Her first part outside Sweden was in Duel at Diablo (1966), which was followed by a number of other American film roles, including I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (1977) and Quintet (1979). She also appeared in Bergman's finest film of the 1970s, Scener ur ett äktenskap (1974; Scenes from a Marriage). Throughout the 1980s and '90s and into the 21st century, Andersson appeared in Scandinavian films and international productions, most notably in a memorable cameo in Babettes gæstebud (1987; Babette's Feast). Andersson was also active as a stage actress from 1956.
