American celebrities with swedish origin?
I recently heard that Jake Gyllenhaal is part swedish.
And it made me wonder...
Are there any other american celebs with swedish ancestors?
(I'm swedish, that's why I'm asking)
Lol why do people always think I like Abba?
Frida is MY name, that's why.
Not cause I'm a fan of the chick in Abba.
I never even heard a song by them.
I've heard Amanda Seyfried's cover of Thank you for the music, but that's it really...

Some of the most famous Swedes in Hollywood are the Skarsgaard brothers and dad. Britt Ekland and Maud Adams along with Isabella Scorupco have all been Bond babes. Sweden also has a ton of hockey players that have made it big in the US through the decades. As for sports, Bjorn Borg and Annika Soerenstam are two of the most famous Swedish athletes who have lived in the US.
