Life and career

Pia Degermark and Thommy Berggren

Born Pia Charlotte Degermark, she came to international notice as the lead in Elvira Madigan (1967), directed by Bo Widerberg, for which she won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 1967. She was spotted by Widerberg in a newspaper photograph dancing with the Swedish Crown Prince Carl Gustav.[1] Degermark acted in only a few more films including The Looking Glass War (1969), an adaptation of the John le Carré novel with the same name, and The Vampire Happening (1971), a West German film produced by her husband. Her acting career ended as a result of personal problems.

She married Siemens heir and film producer Pier Caminneci in 1971, and had a son with him, but they divorced in 1973, and Degermark moved to the United States for a time. She returned to Sweden in 1979 suffering from anorexia. Subsequently, she worked in women's voluntary groups with sufferers of the condition. In 1991, Degermark was sentenced to 14 months in prison for fraud and assault.[1]
