Erland Josephson was a Swedish actor and author. He was best known by international audiences for his work in films directed by 
Ingmar Bergman, Andrel Tarkovsky and Theodoros AngelopoilosJosephson was born in Stockhlom, Sweeden. He was the leader of the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm from 1966 to 1975. Although he was in several motion pictures in the late 1940s and early '50s, including a bit part in Bergman's "The Man With an Umbrella" (1946), Josephson confined himself to the stage during the first part of his career. After appearing in Bergman's "The Magician" (1958) in support of Max von Sydow, Josephson did not make another movie until the late '60s, when he was cast in Bergman's "Hour of the Wolf" (1968). He collaborated on two screenplays with Bergman (using the joint pseudonym of Buntel Eriksson), Alf Kjellin's "The Pleasure Garden" (1961) and Bergman's own "Now About These Women" (1964).

He has also published novels, short stories, poetry and drama, and was the director of several films. In 1980, he directed and starred in the film Marmalade Revolution, which was entered into the 30th Berlin International Film Festival.

He died on 25 February 2012.
