Swedish actress Bibi Andersson, one of Ingmar Bergman's favorite actresses, died Sunday at the age of 83, said her daughter, Jenny Grede Dahlstrand.

She had played in many classics of the Swedish master of which The seventh seal (1957), Wild strawberries (1957) and Persona(1966). She started working with him at the age of 15, then hired to play in several commercials for a Swedish soap brand "Bris" that he realized.

"I belong only to myself"

Bibi Andersson has received numerous awards including the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival in 1963 for her role in The mistress, from Swedish director Vigot Sjoman.

She continued to film until 2009, before being a victim of a stroke that left one side of her body paralyzed.

"She leaves behind a huge void for all those who have had the privilege of living by her side," said her daughter.

For Jan Holmberg, president of the Ingmar Bergman Foundation, Bibi Andersson has not always found roles to match. But "she grabbed it and made something much bigger," he says.

The media, and Ingmar Bergman himself, often talked about actors as his "actors". One day, Bibi Andersson answered, "I belong only to myself," reports Jan Holmberg. "And it was all her."
