Swedish town searches for Ingrid Bergman look-alike for wedding reenactment

Swedish town searches for Ingrid Bergman look-alike for wedding reenactment

A small Swedish town is searching for a bride-to-be who is an Ingrid Bergman look-alike to take part in a reenactment of the film star's first wedding in 1937.
The search has been initiated by the folklore society in Stode, 378 kilometers (235 miles) north of Stockholm, to mark the 70-year anniversary of Bergman's wedding to her first husband Petter Aron Lindstrom in the town church.
"We're looking for a Swedish look-alike and it's going to be a real wedding _ there won't be any cheating _ and we'll pay for the wedding dress and dinner," said Gertrud Svensson, a deputy member of the society.
The Bergman-style wedding is planned for the summer of 2007 and, aside from featuring a look-alike bride and wedding dress, guests will be invited to dine on the original wedding porcelain at the wedding party. The groom does not necessarily have to resemble Lindstrom, who came from Stode.
So far, the guest-list includes the daughter of Bergman and Lindstrom, Pia Lindstrom, as well as other family members living in Stode.
Bergman became a Hollywood icon with films such as "Casablanca," "Notorious," and "Anastasia." She married three times, including to Italian director Roberto Rossellini. Bergman died of cancer in 1982 at the age of 67.
