Biography

Jarl Kulle (27 February 1927 – 3 October 1997) was a Swedish film and stage actor and director, and father of Maria Kulle.[1] He was born in the village of Truedstorp, Scania, Sweden and died in Gregersboda, Sweden of bone cancer. Kulle was one of the leading Swedish stage actors of his generation and often appeared in TV productions, at the Royal Dramatic Theatre of Stockholm as well as in a number of films, several of these directed by Ingmar Bergman. Taking on many star parts of the classical and modern repertory, appearing in contemporary TV drama and musicals and armed with remarkable gifts for both comedy, romantic drama and slightly declamatory but controlled pathos, he was one of Sweden's most loved modern actors. Internationally he's probably most known for his performances in Ingmar Bergman's "Smiles of a Summer Night" and "Fanny and Alexander".
