Gösta Ekman (1890 - 1938) was a Swedish actor. Generally spoken of as Swedish theatre's most legendary stage actor, Gösta Ekman enjoyed a prolific stage career during his short life, becoming the first real star of Swedish theatre. His long addiction to cocaine slowly deteriorated his health and eventually caused his death at age 47
