Johan Allan Edwall (25 August 1924, Rödön, Sweden–7 February 1997, Stockholm, Sweden) was a Swedish actor, director, author, composer and singer, best-known outside Sweden for the small roles he played in some of Ingmar Bergman's films such as Fanny and Alexander (1982). He found his largest audience in the Scandinavian countries for playing lovable characters in several of the film and TV adaptations of the children's stories by Astrid Lindgren. He attended Stockholm's Royal Dramatic Theatre School (Dramatens elevskola) from 1949-1952. During his long career he appeared in over 400 works. In his songs, he frequently attackted the injustices of society. Edwall also owned a theatre, Teater Brunnsgatan Fyra in Stockholm, which he bought in 1986 and operated until his death in 1997 of prostate cancer (It is now managed by Kristina Lugn). He is the father of photographer Mattias Edwall. Acting colleague Erland Josephson wrote about him in Expressen after his death: "He was odd. But, damn it, he managed to be odd in a universal way!"
