With Ingrid Bergman and Greta Garbo, Ingrid Thulin is often cited as one of the best Swedish actress of all time. The blue-eyed blonde personified cool, somewhat aloof, sensuality in a number of film s directed by Ingmar Bergman yet simultaneously, the actress was able to depict suffering with her own brand of Scandinavian vigor. Trained as a ballet dancer, Thulin shifted to theater and first worked with Bergman in several stage productions. While still a student at Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theatre, she made her first film appearances. Billed as 'Ingrid Tulean', she was cast in her first American film, "Foreign Intrigue" (1956), as Robert Mitchum's love interest. But it was not until Bergman cast her as the woman suffering from the slings of her father-in-law (Victor Sjostrom) in "Wild Strawberries" (1957) that she achieved international renown. Thulin lent her beauty and talent as Max Von Sydow's wife in Bergman's "The Magician" (1958). With Bibi Andersson and Eva Dahlbeck, she shared Best Actress honors at the 1958 Cannes Film Festival for their performances as pregnant women in "Brink of Life".
