Beate Eriksen after the death of Toralf Maurstad:

Just over a year ago, sad news came of the passing of legendary actor Toralf Maurstad. The actor died on November 4 at the age of 95.

Greetings to the husband


In an interview with Dagbladet Magasinet magazine, now widow Betty Eriksen (63) talks about what the first year was like without her husband.

– I will never forget the last words he said to me before he died: “My house, am I saved?” I replied: Yes, Toralf, I have survived.

The two met in 1993 and married in 1999. They also played lovers in the hit series “Caesars Hotel.”

– It took me a year to understand that I would live the rest of my life without Toralf. I miss him: the smell, the touch of skin, the pressure of the hand, the look we shared, the poetry, the music and the life we ​​lived for the 30 years – until the end, she tells Dagbladet magazine. .

When Maurstad was buried in Oslo Cathedral at the end of November last year, Eriksen was one of those who spoke in the church.

“Toralph, you were the bravest soul in the world,” she said then.

Now, a year later, she makes no secret that it is still painful to talk about her husband.

-It hurts, but it's also good. I want to talk about Toralph. About love and death. Just about great love and death. And about trees. They provide warmth, they provide grounding – and I need that. Trees contain wisdom and memory. In recent years, before he fell ill, Toralph made sure to fill the shed with firewood.
