Sickan Carlsson
Birth: Aug. 12, 1915
Sodermalm
Stockholms län, Sweden
Death: Nov. 2, 2011
Sodermalm
Stockholms län, Sweden

Actress, Singer. One of her country's best liked performers over a long career, she is probably most remembered for the World War II era comedies created to cheer the populace as well as for the numerous recordings she made. Named for her father's favorite actress Sickan Castegren, she took to show business early, singing on the radio at 10 and signing a film contract shortly after quitting school at 16. Sickan made her silver screen bow in 1932's "A Stolen Waltz" and over her time before the public was to be typecast in happy, cheerful parts. With around 50 movies to her credit she earned particular note for her starring roles in 1946's "The Happy Party" and Ingmar Bergman's 1961 "The Pleasure Garden". Sickan was last seen on the big screen in the 1979 "Charlotte Lowenskold" but appeared on television as late as 1992 in "Cousins of the Cubic". She received a 2005 Honorary Guldbagge Award, Sweden's equivalent of a Lifetime Achievement Oscar, lived out her days in Stockholm, and died of the effects of advanced age. At her death a number of her movies and records were preserved. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
