More information

Helena Bergström is the granddaughter of legendary Swedish actor Olof Widgren and the daughter of Hans Bergström (director) and Kerstin Widgren (actress). Bergström is married to Colin Nutley and is known for playing the female lead in many of his films. Being one of Sweden’s most highly acclaimed stage actresses she has played the lead part in plays like "Miss Julie", "Twelfth Night", "Pygmalion", "Piaf", "A Dolls House", the part of Hamlet in "Hamlet", "Medea" and Blanche in "A Streetcar Named Desire”. In the autumn of 2008 she will play the part of Sally Bowles in Stockholm City Theatre’s production of "Cabaret".



Despite being born into a theatrical family, Bergström's childhood dream was to work with animals. Aged 15, she travelled to Mississippi in the US as an exchange student and lived there for a year. During this time, she became fascinated with the theatre and decided that the stage was her calling. Back in Sweden, she won a part in a TV series but failed in her first attempt to achieve a place at stage school. Thanks to tuition from Margreth Weivers, she succeeded on her third attempt in 1985.
