Gunnel Märtha Ingegärd Lindblom (born 18 December 1931) is a Swedish film actress and director.[1] As an actress she has been particularly associated with the work of Ingmar Bergman, though in 1965 she performed the lead role in Miss Julie for BBC Television. She also played the key-role of The Mummy in Bergman's staging of Strindberg's The Ghost Sonata in 1998-2000, a performance that earned her much critical acclaim.

She appeared on stage as Tintomara's mother in Carl Almqvist's play Drottningens juvelsmycke (English: The Queen's Tiara), staged at Dramaten for the theatre's 100-year jubilee in 2008. In 2009, she directed the Jon Fosse play Flicka i gul regnjacka (Girl in Yellow Raincoat) at the Royal Dramatic Theatre, starring Stina Ekblad and Irene Lindh, which premiered on 9 October.[citation needed]

Lindblom is married to senior lecturer Sture Helander.
