Christina Schollin (born Christina Alma Elisabet Schollin; 26 December 1937) is a Swedish actress[1] known to international audiences mainly through her appearances in motion pictures, such as Dear John, Song of Norway and Ingmar Bergman's Fanny and Alexander.

Her 1961 film Love Mates was originally entitled Angels, Do They Exist? in Swedish. The "angel" theme has become an integral part of Schollin's image, and until 2011 she ran her own gift shop with that motif and product, plus an adjacent lounge for performing arts, in the Old Town Gamla stan of Stockholm.[2]


Since 1962 she is married to actor Hans Wahlgren; the couple have four children: Peter, Niclas, Pernilla and Linus Wahlgren. She won the award for Best Actress at the 3rd Guldbagge Awards for her role in Ormen.[3]
