Swedish actress Kristina Wayborn is a wonderful person in real life and one of Sweden's finest. Over the years, she's become one of FSWL's most devoted supporters and loyal friends.

Kristina was elected Miss Sweden in 1970 and turned to acting in 1976. Her most famous film roles are as Greta Garbo in The Silent Lovers in and Magda in Octopussy (1983).

More information about Kristina's acting career on IMDB.

Your strongest memory from the Miss Sweden time?
- It was when all the contestants, before the Miss Universe contest, went to Japan for ten days. We ate a lot of good food and I think everyone gained ten kilograms except for the one who won because she did not follow us to Japan.

- The Miss Sweden contest helped me a lot and gave me inner strength, but I had done the same thing today anyway, says Kristina.
