Olof Thunberg


Swedish actor Olof Thunberg has died at the age of 94. Despite being far better known in the UK and US for being the grandfather of climate activist Greta, Olof was a much loved voice actor in his homeland. He was the voice of Bamse, a honey loving bear (this sounds awfie familiar) who has several popular kids films. When not playing Not Winnie The Pooh, he was also the Swedish voice of Shere Khan in the dubs of The Jungle Book.

Thunberg is a unique pick for theme team Death is International.
