Who is Alida Morberg?
Alida Morberg was born on 30 January 1985, in Sweden, and is an actress, but perhaps best known for being the girlfriend of actor Bill Skarsgard. Her partner is known for his work in the “It” film series, in which he portrayed Pennywise the Dancing Clown. She, on the other hand, has worked on several films based in Sweden, including “Solsidan” and “Gangster”.
The Net Worth of Alida Morberg
As of mid-2020, Alida Morberg’s net worth is estimated to be over $2 million, earned through a successful career in the acting profession since the early 2000s.
With how serious her relationship with Bill is, she probably benefits from his success as well, as he has a net worth estimated to be over $5 million, thanks to numerous hits at the box office.
Life and Career
Alida is the daughter of actor Per Morberg, who’s known for his work on various Swedish television and film projects. She grew up in Lilla Edet, Vastra Gotaland, Sweden, a small town, and where she discovered her love for acting. She eventually followed in her father’s footsteps, first appearing in the film “Gangster” in 2007.
She then began dedicating more to the craft, appearing in projects such as “Insane”, “Maria Wern – Stum Sitter Guden”, “Rosor, Kyssar och Doden”, and “Stockholm Stories”. The latter film follows the story of five people who meet during the rainy month of November in Stockholm. She gained a bit of popularity for this work, and then she appeared in the horror film “Sensoria” in 2915, and during the same year in the film “Beck – Rum 302” which is a part of the Martin Beck film series. One of her latest projects is the Scandinavian show “Black Lake”.
Partner – Bill Skarsgard
Bill is the son of actor Stellan Skarsgard who is known for his work in various high profile films, including “The Hunt for Red October”, “Good Will Hunting”, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series, several Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films, and the “Mamma Mia!” films. He grew up with seven siblings in a family of actors, most of whom would pursue acting. His family promoted a very creative lifestyle, allowing the kids to express themselves and pursue what they desired.
In 2000 he made his professional film debut in the Swedish film “White Water Fury”, which saw him work with Rafael Edholm and Emil Forselius.
Afterwards, he did a few television projects, though most focused on film work; these included “Arn – The Kingdom at Road’s End” and “Kenny Begins”. In 2010, he started to gain recognition for his work in the film “Simple Simon”, and the comedy film was selected as the country’s entry for the Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category. He was rewarded with a Guldbagge Award for his performance.
Rise to Prominence – Bill Skarsgard
Skarsgard continued working on local projects in the next few years, including “Behind Blue Skies”, “Anna Karenina”, and “The Crown Jewels”.
In 2013, he was cast in his first long term television role in the Netflix series “Hemlock Grove” as Roman Godfrey, produced by Eli Roth and based on the novel of the same name written by Brian McGreevy. The show focuses on his character, as numerous strange occurrences begin happening in their fictional town, leading him to investigate along with a newcomer in town. The show aired for three seasons and had a lot of success.
This opened more opportunities for him, and in 2016 he was cast in his first major film in Hollywood, “The Divergent Series; Allegiant”; the film is a sequel to the film “Insurgent” which are based on the “Divergent” trilogy written by Veronica Roth.
The film was set to be released in two parts, but following negative reviews and bombing at the box office, the continuation was never created. A year later, he worked on the film “Atomic Blonde”, which starred Charlize Theron and James McAvoy, and is based on the graphic novel “The Coldest City” by Antony Johnston.
International Success – It and Other Projects
In 2017, Bill got one of his most notable roles so far, as he was cast as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the film “It”. The film is based on the novel of the same name written by Stephen King, telling the story of a group of seven children who begin to experience being haunted by the titular creature.
The film was highly successful, becoming the highest-grossing horror film of all time, and was named as one of the best films of the year. Its success led to the creation of a sequel.
In the meantime, he gained numerous other offers in Hollywood, including a supporting role in “Deadpool 2” in which he appeared as the mutant Zeitgeist. The film starred Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin, and is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The film was also another success, grossing highly at the box office, and held the title of highest-grossing R-rated film for around a year.
In 2019, he reprised his role in “It – Chapter Two” which didn’t achieve the same amount of success as the first film.
Alida has been in a relationship with Bill for several years, and in 2018 they announced that they were having a child. The two remain together though they haven’t indicated a desire to pursue marriage. In recent years, she’s been busy with raising their child and so hasn’t taken a lot of acting offers. Outside of work, she is a very private person, not having any social media accounts, and keeping to herself. She doesn’t make any appearances in any of Bill’s accounts either.
