Kulle was born in the village of Truedstorp, outside Ekeby, Sweden, and was the son of the merchant Nils Kulle and Mia Bergendahl.[2] Kulle was one of the leading Swedish stage actors of his generation and often appeared in TV productions, at the Royal Dramatic Theatre of Stockholm as well as in a number of films, several of these directed by Ingmar Bergman. Taking on many star parts of the classical and modern repertory, appearing in contemporary TV drama and musicals and armed with remarkable gifts for both comedy, romantic drama and slightly declamatory but controlled pathos, he was one of Sweden's most loved modern actors.

In 1965 he won the award for Best Actor for his role in Swedish Wedding Night at the 2nd Guldbagge Awards.[3] He won his second Guldbagge Best Actor award for Fanny and Alexander at the 19th Guldbagge Awards in 1983.[4]

In 1960, Kulle married Louise Hermelin (born 1939), daughter of cavalry captain, Baron Carl-Magnus Hermelin and Ann-Marie Sourander.[2] They divorced in 1968. In 1976, Kulle married the actress Anne Nord. Kulle died in Gregersboda, Sweden in 1997 of bone cancer.
