Lena Olin
Scroll down for movie list.

Lena Olin born in Sweden, had already made a successful career as an actress before she came to Hollywood. She acted at the Royal Theatre in Stockholm directed by Ingmar Bergman. Her father Stig Olin was also an actor and played in six of Bergman's films. Lena also belongs to the Bergman "family". As a young actress she played in the great classics of Shakespeare, Ibsen and Strindberg. She made her international debut as a movie actress in Efter repetitionen (After the rehearsal) directed by Bergman. In western Europe she became well known in the political movie Unbearable Lightness of Being, The (1988), as Sabina, a story about the Prague spring (1968). After coming to the USA she played mostly distinguished, exotic temptresses, intelligent women and crude vamps. Bergman had developed her artistic gift to play different human emotions and express them in a subtle way. Sydney Pollack director of Out of Africa (1985) rewrote the scenario for the movie Havanna especially for Lena. This explains why this film recalls associations with the classic movie Casablanca (1942) starring Ingrid Bergman also from Sweden.
