"Inger Nilsson: ”It was unpleasant and I was angry”"
"Inger Nilsson was modestly paid for the role of Pippi in the movie. "
"Now the Dutch fans started a collection to show their appreciation. "
"– When I first found out about the collection I thought that it was unpleasant and I was angry, " says Inger Nilsson to Nöjesbladet. "
"the Actress Inger Nilsson, 59, for many forever linked with Pippi Longstocking, was only eight years old when she was in great competition with 8 000 applicants ploy the role of Pippi. "
"Pippi friends, Tommy and Annika played by Pär Sundberg and Maria Persson, both on tv and in the movies. "
"Tv series and the movies made the trio a child actor to big star even outside the country's borders. "
"particularly In Germany and Holland have achieved cult status and is still seen as big stars – 50 years after the first recording. "
"In the last week did Inger Nilsson in an interview with Dutch newspaper AD about the years as Pippi, where it was angled so that the readers got a sense that barnstjärnorna barely got paid for their efforts in the immensely popular films. "
"– We got paid all of them. But the journalist and a great many others think that we become rich in the movies and got paid for reruns and dvd sales, and so on. But this type of agreement was not invented at the time, " says Inger Nilsson to Nöjesbladet. "
"When the interview with Inger was published in the Netherlands raged the fans and immediately started a fundraiser online that urged people to donate a buck to ”they used barnskådespelarna”. "
"At the time of writing, has over 2, 000 people donated the equivalent of almost 200 000 sek. Money that should go to Inger Nilsson, Pär Sundberg and Maria Persson. "
"– When I first found out about the collection I thought that it was unpleasant and I was angry. I am no victim. It is not at all bad for me in any way. Not the second either, " she says. "
"– When it got to sink in, I realized that it was just a way for fans to show their appreciation. And then it felt better. "
"Why do you think the interview early days as it did?"
" I think it stems from the fact that the journalist had such great expectations of me. She thought I would be a star. And so I was just ordinary. I have been many times through the years. She wanted to meet with Pippi, but met Inger. "
"Inger who right now plays in the German deckarserien ”the Commissioner and the sea” on the island of Gotland have not had time to talk with his old friends Pär Sundberg and Maria Persson on what they will do with the money. "
" We have not had time to discuss it, Tommy and Annika live both in Spain. But we might give the money to charity. They are as surprised as I am myself. We have had contact via the internet. I get to speak with them properly when I get home from the shooting. "
"the Filming of the tv series ”Pippi Longstocking” was started in the winter of 1968 in the Norwegian Roros and after the premiere on 8 February 1969, it became Pippi-hysteria. "
