Melander, known from, among other things, “Selskapsreisen”, shared this in a video published on Facebook.
– Now I stand here and am very sorry to announce that I have got cancer again, he said then.
Thursday night comes the news that the actor is dead. He turned 74 years old.
According to Expressen Melander fell asleep surrounded by his immediate family.
– We already miss him and want to mourn in peace, says his son Victor in a statement from the family to the newspaper.
It was in March 2018 that Melander went out on his social channels and told that he had been diagnosed with cancer. He received the heavy message just before Christmas in 2017, and both surgery and chemotherapy followed.
About two years later he was recovered, but this autumn the cancer returned.
In Norway, Sven Melander is best known for his participation in the mentioned “Company trip”, where he played against the late entertainment legend Jon Skolmen.
Melander and Skolmen also collaborated in the SVT program «Nöjesmassakern».
