768) Viveca Lindfors

Elsa Viveca Torstensdotter Lindfors (1920 – 1995). Swedish stage and film actress, and singer.
She moved to the United States in 1946 after being signed by Warner Bros. and began working in Hollywood. She appeared with actors such as Ronald Reagan, Jeffrey Hunter, Charlton Heston, Lizabeth Scott and Errol Flynn.
Lindfors appeared frequently on television, usually as a guest star, though she played the title role in the miniseries Frankenstein's Aunt. Most of her TV appearances were in the 1950s and 1960s, with a resurgence in the 1980s and early 1990s. In 1990, she won an Emmy Award for her guest appearance on the ABC series Life Goes On. She was nominated for an Emmy in 1978 for her supporting role in the TV movie A Question of Guilt.
In 1962, she shared the Silver Bear for Best Actress award with Rita Gam at the Berlin Film Festival, for their performances in Tad Danielewski's No Exit. Among her later film roles, perhaps the most memorable is the kindly and worldly-wise Professor Taub in The Sure Thing (1985).

- "Miss Lindfors appeared in many plays in Sweden and was considered that country's leading film attraction before leaving in 1946 for the United States, where her auburn hair and elegant features led more than one observer to proclaim her an actress of Garboesque beauty." https://www.nytimes.com/…/viveca-lindfors-stage-and-film-ac…
