STOCKHOLM -- Ingrid Thulin, who with Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman was often cited as one of Sweden's best actresses, died Wednesday in a Stockholm hospital after a long illness. She was 77.
Ms. Thulin started her career as a ballet dancer attending Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theatre. She worked with legendary Swedish director Ingmar Bergman in stage productions before moving to film, appearing in minor roles in the 1940s and 1950s.
It was her work with Bergman that brought her fame and accolades and made her a favorite of Swedes, including a shared Cannes Film Festival best actress award in 1958 with fellow Swedes Bibi Andersson and Eva Dahlbeck for their roles in "Brink of Life."
According to the All Movie Guide, her first American starring role came in 1956, when she was cast with Robert Mitchum in "Foreign Intrigue." But her time in Hollywood was marred by her role in 1962's "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse." Her lines were overdubbed by actress Angela Lansbury.
Ms. Thulin also appeared on Broadway and on television productions.
