A major star of the Swedish cinema of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, Bibi Andersson was appearing on stage at Malmo when discovered by Ingmar Bergman, who was casting a 1951 Bris soap commercial. She went on to became a staple of the director's stock company, distinguishing herself in such films as "Wild Strawberries" (1957), as the young hiker who brings comfort into the life of an elderly man (Victor Sjostrom), "Brink of Life" (1958), as the protective mother of an illegitimate child, for which she was named Best Actress at Cannes and "The Devil's Eye" (1959). Her finest work is undoubtedly "Persona" (1966), Bergman's masterpiece about a mute actress (Liv Ullman) and her nurse (Andersson) who gradually switch minds and identities. In "The Touch" (1971), Andersson was cast as a homemaker who seems content, but doubts her very happiness
