Bergman collaborator Erland Josephson has died. He was known to ballet fans from the film “The Dancer” with Katja Bjorner.

Rest in peace.

Thanks for posting, PeggyR. He did good work with Tarkovsky late in his career, as well. From the obit:

Mr. Josephson also wrote several plays, novels and memoirs and directed the film "Marmalade Revolution" (1980). As a fellow writer and director, and a lifelong friend, he often spoke perceptively about Bergman’s work. "A man obsessed with failure has succeeded better than others in portraying it," Mr. Josephson once wrote. "This could be referred to as the Bergman vaccination method."
