Jarl Lage Kulle (27 February 1927 – 3 October 1997) was a Swedish film and stage actor and director, and father of Maria Kulle.

Kulle was born in the village of Truedstorp, outside Ekeby, Sweden and was the son of the merchant Nils Kulle and Mia Bergendahl. Kulle was one of the leading Swedish stage actors of his generation and often appeared in TV productions, at the Royal Dramatic Theatre of Stockholm as well as in a number of films, several of these directed by Ingmar Bergman. Taking on many star parts of the classical and modern repertory, appearing in contemporary TV drama and musicals and armed with remarkable gifts for both comedy, romantic drama and slightly declamatory but controlled pathos, he was one of Sweden's most loved modern actors.

In 1965 he won the award for Best Actor for his role in Swedish Wedding Night at the 2nd Guldbagge Awards. He won his second Guldbagge Best Actor award for Fanny and Alexander at the 19th Guldbagge Awards in 1983.

In 1960, Kulle married Louise Hermelin (born 1939), daughter of cavalry captain, Baron Carl-Magnus Hermelin and Ann-Marie Sourander. They divorced in 1968. In 1976, Kulle married the actress Anne Nord. Kulle died in Gregersboda, Sweden in 1997 of bone cancer.


Très actif au théâtre, Jarl Kulle joue au Théâtre dramatique royal (Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern — abrégé Dramaten — en suédois) de Stockholm entre 1946 et 1996, notamment dans des pièces du "répertoire" (William Shakespeare, August Strindberg, Molière, entre autres). Mentionnons sa participation à la création mondiale en 1956, au 'Dramaten', de la pièce d'Eugene O'Neill Le Long Voyage vers la nuit (créée à Broadway à la fin de cette même année 1956). Et citons son rôle du Professeur Higgins, à la création suédoise de la comédie musicale My Fair Lady, en 1959.

Au cinéma, il tourne des films — majoritairement suédois — entre 1946 et 1998 (le dernier sort l'année suivant sa mort). Il collabore ainsi, à plusieurs reprises, avec le réalisateur Ingmar Bergman (qu'il retrouvera, après Fanny et Alexandre en 1982, comme metteur en scène au théâtre, entre 1984 et 1995). En outre, Jarl Kulle sera réalisateur et scénariste (en plus d'acteur) de trois films, en 1969, 1970 et 1974.

À la télévision, il joue dans trois téléfilms (en 1974, 1980 et 1994) et une série (en 1986).
