Much in demand in World War II Hollywood films -- playing both Nazi officers and Scandinavian resistance fighters -- blond Sven-Hugo Borg was a secretary with the Swedish Consulate in Los Angeles in 1925 when the newly arrived Greta Garbo hired him as her interpreter. Bitten by the acting bug, Borg played minor roles in Joan Crawford's Rose Marie (1928) and a few other films but remained with the consulate until the late 1930s. Best remembered perhaps for playing "Sven," one of the doomed crew members in Paramount's Mystery Sea Raider (1940), Borg appeared as a German soldier in Ernst Lubitsch's satire To Be or Not to Be (1942), as well as This Land Is Mine (1943) and Tarzan Triumphs (1943). Filming less frequently after the war, Borg was Dr. Mattsen in The Farmer's Daughter (1947), "Swede" in Fortunes of Captain Blood (1950), an aide to Bernadotte (Michael Rennie) in Desirée (1954), and a scientist in The Prize (1963) -- his final credited role.
