Biography

Lund, Skåne län, Sweden
Max von Sydow was born on April 10, 1929 in a middle-class family in Lund, Sweden. He is the son of Maria Margareta (Rappe) and Carl Wilhelm von Sydow, an ethnologist and folklore professor. His surname originates from distant German ancestry. When he was in high school, he and a few fellow students, including Yvonne Lombard, started a theatre club which encouraged his interest in acting. After conscription, he began to study at the Royal Dramatic Theatre's acting school (1948-1951), together with Lars Ekborg, Margaretha Krook and Ingrid Thulin. Read more...
