Birth: Oct. 13, 1871
Death: Jan. 2, 1953

Swedish stage and film actress. One of Sweden's most legendary silent film actresses. Made her film debut in 1912. Starred in leading parts in Victor Sjöström (Seastrom)'s great silent films 'Ingeborg Holm' (1913) and 'Körkarlen' (aka The Phantom Carriage/The Stroke of Midnight) in 1921. Trained at the old Royal Theatre's ballet school in Stockholm 1880-87 and after that studied drama to become an actress. Professional debut on stage in 1890 at one of Albert Ranft's theatres. Actress of Sweden's national stage, the Royal Dramatic Theatre (Dramaten), between 1900-1912 and 1920-1938. Retired officially from stage in 1938 and then appeared in several notable supporting parts in Swedish talkies 1930s-50s, for example in films 'Ett brott' (1940) and 'Kejsarn av Portugallien' (1944), and in films by Hasse Ekman such as 'Kungliga patrasket' (1945) and 'Flickan från tredje raden' (1949). Was also teacher at the Royal Dramatic Theatre's acting school (Dramatens elevskola) in the 1930s-40s. Altogether she made some 80 parts on film. Had one daughter, Gertrud (also buried in the same grave). 
Note: Since 50 years has passed since the burial and no one no longer is paying for it, the grave is currently in high risk of being reverted to the cemetery (2007)
