Stefan Allan Ljungqvist (born 4 September 1948) is a Swedish singer and actor.

Biography[edit]

Singer and musician[edit]

Ljungqvist has alternated between opera, songs, revues and musicals during his career. He played in the pop band Jokers in 1968, but also began to appear as a troubadour. When he performed at the Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg in 1966, the organizer had forgotten his name and presented him as Trubadur X, an artist name that he then used throughout the 1970s. The repertoire included songs by both Evert Taube and Nils Ferlin, but also texts written by Bo Maniette or the Gothenburg poet Ture Ivar Dahlberg. He liked to sing freckles and was censored at Gothenburg's youth centers. He recorded three LPs under the name and ended up at Svensktoppen with "Det är så hälsosamt och stärkande i fjällen" in 1977. Ljungqvist was also on the Svensktoppen for 22 weeks together with Matz Stefanz med Lailaz with the song "Evert" in 1997.

He attended the University College of Opera between 1972 and 1975. He portrayed Carl Michael Bellman in the Bellman play in Stockholm in 1972 and was a consistent figure in a chronicle play at Liseberg's 50th anniversary in 1973.[1]

Ljungqvist is a prominent interpreter of Lasse Dahlquist's poems; in 1980 he recorded the LP Till Lasse Dahlquist från Stefan Ljungqvist. He was awarded the Lasse Dahlquist Award in 1991.

Revues and musicals[edit]

During the 1980s, Ljungqvist participated in several of Hagge Geigert's revues at the Liseberg Theatre in Gothenburg. On the same stage, he played in the farce Arsenic and Old Lace in 1987 and the revues Sommarskôj during the 1990s.'

In recent years, Ljungqvist has been a guest artist in various revues around the country, including Mats Ljung in Skara. In the summers of 2010–2013, Ljungqvist performed at Gunnebo House Theatre in Mölndal with the sets The White Horse Inn, Me and My Girl, Ladykillers and Charmören från Långedrag. From October 2015, he has played the role of Robban in the original production of the musical Sällskapsresan – based on Lasse Åberg's 1980 film Sällskapsresan – at Nöjesteatern in Malmö.

TV and film[edit]

For the adult audience, Ljungqvist is best known as the somewhat clumsy but kind-hearted policeman Evald Larsson in the detective series Polisen i Strömstad. Ljungqvist has also had several of his own entertainment series on TV, including Stjärnsmäll on Liseberg and Ljungqvist på bommen.

To a younger audience, he is better known as the voice of two of Disney's villains; first he was John Ratcliffe in Pocahontas (1995), and later Claude Frollo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996). Ljungqvist also did the voice for Marjory the Trash Heap in the classic children's series Fraggle Rock.
