    Allan Edwall was born in a working class home in Jämtland, Sweden in 1924. His father was a trade-union man. 1949-52 he attended Stockholm's Royal Daramatic Theatre School. Through the years he made more than 400 parts in theater, film, television and radio. He was also a director, an author, a composer and a singer.

From 1986 and for the remaining years he ran his own theater 'Brunnsgatan 4' in Stockholm, where he did everything by himself, from acting to selling tickets.

    After his death, Erland Josephson wrote about him in Expressen: "He was odd. But he was odd in a universal way!"
