Ingrid Bergman: Roles She Missed That Other Actresses Made Famous

By    |   Thursday, 07 Jan 2016 01:13 AM

Three-time Oscar-winner Ingrid Bergman, the Swedish actress who caused a scandal in 1949 when she left her husband and daughter in Hollywood to marry Italian director Roberto Rossellini, led a soap-opera life. Her affair kept her out of America for seven years. And though her career was a success, she also left some roles behind that made other actresses famous.

She was known for starring in films such as “Casablanca,” “Spellbound,” and “Anastasia.” And she won the “triple crown” of acting, with an Oscar, Emmy and Tony among her honors. But she didn’t get every role that came along. These are some of the roles that went to other actresses.

“An Affair to Remember”
Director Leo McCarey originally wanted Bergman to play the female lead, the role of Terry McKay, in this love story, Turner Classic Movies noted. Instead, Deborah Kerr got the role and was able to work again with Cary Grant.

“Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”
MGM originally cast her in the Beatrix Emery role and Lana Turner in the Ivy Peterson role in “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” author Blago Kirov said in the book “The Famous: Book 4.” “Bergman felt the role of Ivy was more challenging and persuaded the studio to let her switch roles with Turner,” Kirov said.

“Murder on the Orient Express”
“Bergman was originally offered the role of Princess Dragonmiroff in ‘Murder on the Orient Express,’” Kirov said. “She later ended up playing Gretta Ohlsson, which won her an Oscar.”

But just because she didn’t get every role didn’t mean people didn’t love her. Actor Anthony Quinn once said this about her: “Sometimes in motion pictures, you love someone so much, but it doesn’t work on the screen,” Kirov said in “The Famous: Book 4.” “And you don’t like somebody and you’re wonderful on screen. The two greatest talents I worked with were Ingrid and Anna Magnani. But I would prefer to work with Magnani, whom I didn’t like, than Ingrid, whom I loved.”
