Profile Bio Text
Born Lars Mauritz Hanson in Göteborg, Sweden, Hanson began his career on the stages of Sweden after studying drama in Helsinki, Finland and Stockholm as a Shakespearean actor, appearing in such classics as Othello and Hamlet. Hanson made his film debut in the 1915 film Dolken, directed by Mauritz Stiller, and his popularity as a leading man in his homeland grew with ensuing roles. He was a student of Dramatens elevskola. While already a well established popular actor in Sweden and much of continental Europe, Lars Hanson gained greater international recognition for his role as the title character in the 1923 Stiller film Gösta Berlings saga (English: The Story of Gösta Berling), which featured a young Mauritz Stiller protegé named Greta Garbo in one of her first major appearances on screen as well as film stage actress Gerda Lundequist. At the request of American actress Lillian Gish, Hanson arrived in Hollywood, California in 1926 (the same year as Garbo) to star opposite Gish in the film version of The Scarlet Letter directed by fellow countrymen Victor Sjöström. In 1922, Lars Hanson married the ex-wife of influential director Gustaf Molander, Swedish actress Karin Molander. The couple remained married until Hanson`s death in 1965. Hanson`s Hollywood career as an actor steadily grew momentum during the 1920s and he was paired with Greta Garbo in two more motion pictures; MGM`s 1927 box-office hit Flesh and the Devil, which also starred Garbo`s offscreen lover, the successful film actor John Gilbert, and 1928`s The Divine Woman, again directed Victor Sjöström. Sjöström also directed Hanson in a performance opposite Lillian Gish in The Wind (1928). By the end of the 1920s however, the era of the silent film was waning, and seeing that his heavy Swedish accent might be a liability in American films, Lars Hanson returned to Europe. Upon arriving back in Europe in 1928, Hanson starred in the aptly titled German film Heimkehr (English: Homecoming) opposite Gustav Fröhlich and Dita Parlo. Lars Hanson continued to appear in Swedish films until the early 1950s before retiring. Hanson`s last performance was in the 1951 film Dårskapens hus (The Nuthouse). Hanson balanced his film work with an outstanding stage career, making memorable appearances in A Dream Play (1935), The Ghost Sonata (1942), and as James Tyrone in the world premiere of Eugene O`Neill`s Long Day`s Journey into Night (1956). In 1956, Hanson, along with actress Inga Tidblad became the first two actors to receive The Eugene O`Neill Award, presented annually to Sweden`s most outstanding stage actors. Hanson was also a successful Shakespearean actor, especially for his performance as Richard III. Lars Hanson died in Stockholm, Sweden in 1965 after a short illness at the age of 78.
