Johan Hedenberg (born 9 October 1954) is a Swedish actor.


Prior to becoming an actor, he worked as a prison officer at Svartsjö Anstalten (Blacklake penitentiary). As a child, he was beaten by his father until his late teens, when he physically assaulted him. After the attack, Hedenberg's father never touched him again but their relationship became very frosty. In the 1980s, he spent much time in the company of Thorsten Flinck and Paolo Roberto. In 1984, after getting into a fight, he lost his job at Dramaten.[1] He soon found work in various TV series and at the end of the 1980s found work in the emerging business of voice acting. With the introduction of commercial television in Sweden, animated shows on TV became more common and Hedenberg found steady work as a voice actor which he still benefits from. As a voice actor, Hedenberg became a popular choice to cast as villains because of his deep voice. He has provided the Swedish voice for several famous cartoon villains such as Dr. Julian Robotnik, Prolix, The Shredder, Dr. Drakken and Dick Dastardly. In 2012, Hedenberg miraculously survived an operation to remove a tumor from his heart which was at high risk at spreading. Hedenberg says that the incident gave him new perspectives on life. He has two daughters from a previous marriage.[2]
