Nils Poppe
Birth: May 31, 1908
Death: Jun. 28, 2000

Actor, Theatre Director. Born Fredrik Jönsson, and groing up as an orphan. He made his name as a comedian actor, for instance in the films about soldier ”Fabian Bom”. But he was a many talented actor, controlling singing, dancing and acrobatics. He was often compared with Charlie Chaplin in his way of appearance and skills. Noted for the Joker ”Jof” in Ingmar Bergman´s ”Det sjunde inseglet” (The seventh seal), which showed his broad talent as an actor. From 1985, on to his death, he managed the Fredriksdal´s Open-air Theatre in Helsingborg, where he produced a comedy for each summer. He also participated in the plays himself, until just a few years prior to his death.  (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
