Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The Swedish-born Erland Josephson is an internationally revered actor, expertly portraying ironic yet humane characters, who has worked with some of the world's finest filmmakers-Ingmar Bergman, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Theodoros Angelopoulos. His work with Bergman is his most well-known and ranges from the director's earliest films ("It Rains on Our Love," "To Joy," "Brink of Life") to his last ("Saraband"). After working with Bergman on 1958's "The Magician," supporting film lead Max Von Sydow, Josephson returned to stage work full-time.

Josephson's work with the great, austere Russian director Tarkovsky yielded two of the director's most important later works, the poetic odyssey "Nostalghia" and the sublimely spiritual "The Sacrifice."
