Actress Stina Ekblad was born in Finland. She studied acting in Odense, Denmark, and was engaged by the Stockholm City Theatre in 1980. Seven years later, she proceeded to the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, where she has created a large number of roles and collaborated with directors such as Ingmar Bergman, Staffan Valdemar Holm, Peter Oskarsson and Lennart Hjulström. In 2002, she played the role of Phoenix in choreographer Mats Ek´s much hailed staging of ”Andromaque” by Jean Racine. She has also participated in many films directed by e.g. Bo Widerberg, Mai Zetterling, Jan Troell, Colin Nutley and, again, Ingmar Bergman.

She takes great delight in reciting lyric poetry and in 1994 she recorded a CD with poems by Edith Södergran. She regularly performs with pianist Matti Hirvonen, where the poems are interspersed among the music. 1998 saw the premiere of her production of ”St. Luke´s Gospel” performed as a monologue (directed by Jan Dolata), with which she has toured all over Sweden.

Stina Ekblad also holds a professorship emphasising on language and the interpretation of texts at the University College of Acting in Stockholm.
