Max von Sydow

Max von Sydow (born 1929) is a Swedish actor who has made about a dozen films with Ingmar Bergman. It was through these films von Sydow earned his international reputation. Sydow is probably best known for his role as a priest in The Exorcist, though he's also starred in The Seventh Seal and The Greatest Story Ever Told[?], and appeared in the James Bond movie Never Say Never Again[?] (as the head of S.P.E.C.T.R.E.), Minority Report, Flash Gordon (as Emperor Ming) and Conan the Barbarian, though his most appreciated roles are in dramas like Pelle the Conqueror. It could be said to be characteristic of him that he has played God, Jesus Christ, Lucifer and an exorcist. His voice is also heard internationally in many commercials and voice-overs.
