Sven-Olaf Bern Andersson was born on August 20, 1919 in
Kalmar, Kalmar län, Sweden. Little is known about Bern. He was primarily a
stage actor who appeared in three films: “Fröken Julie” (1951), “Linje sex”
(1958) and his only Euro-western “The Emigrants” (1970) as Nils. There’s even
disagreement on the date of his death with most sources stating May 5, 1971 in
Stockholm white the Swedish Film Database gives May 5, 1971.
Today we remember Sven-Olaf Bern on what would have been
his 95th birthday.
