Also worth noting that Lindblom’s death means that there is now only one credited cast member of The Seventh Seal still living.


Inga Landgré (wiki) turns 94 in August and was still acting as recently as 2019.

I also report another superstar of Chinese cinema, Qin Yi, is in failing health. Apart from being cranky old, she has received seven surgical procedures in recent years and is a thyroid cancer sufferer.

Qin Yi celebrated her 99th birthday yesterday. Apparently she has been permanently hospitalised since late 2019, but her condition is now "stable". Photo in the linked article.

He'll be best remembered for his connection with Luis Bunuel, as co-writer of Bunuel's later films, which were his most polished and successful: The Discreet Charm of the BourgeoisieThe Phantom of LibertyThat Obscure Object of Desire and others.

Hong Kong actress picked somewhere, Yu Mo Lin, is much better after spending three months on life support for pulmonary fibrosis and will likely be discharged soon. East Asian immortality, you know.
