Early lifeEdit

Settman was raised by his mother in Sätra. He is an only child born to parents[2] Gunnar Törnstrand and Marianne Settman, both of whom never married each other.[4] His father died of cancer when he was fourteen years old.[5]

Education and careerEdit

Settman started acting in Skärholmen at the age of ten and studied at Södra Latin along with eventual Ronny and Ragge actors Fredde Granberg and Gila Bergqvist.[2] At age 21 he acted in skits in the youth television show Kosmopol on local television in Växjö.[6][7] In 1989 Settman started his production company Baluba, which he still owns and runs today.[1][6][8]

Ronny och Ragge was one of Settman's most prominent shows. Settman played Ronny to Granberg's Ragge; the duo was depicted as typical raggare.[7] The characters were introduced in a parody of a popular soap opera, Storstad, and became an instant hit.[7] Settman and Granberg featured on their own show called Byhåla, which was broadcast on Sveriges Television from 1991 to 1993.[7][9] Upon the suggestion of Swedish musician Christer Sandelin, Ronny and Ragge released their own album with lyrics set to Sandelin's music, which sold 138,000 copies.[7]

Settman and Granberg co-starred in shows such as Megafon, Äntligen Måndag, Stereo and Bara med Bruno.[10] They went their separate ways in the late 1990s.[1][11] In 2001 Settman acted in the TV4 show En ängels tålamod, where he played the character Gabriel.[12] In 2004, he presented Melodifestivalen 2004, and became Melodifestivalen 2005's producer the following year.[13] In 2006, he started presenting Så ska det låta (That's the Spirit!) on SVT and Sommarkrysset in 2005 on TV4.[14] Between late 2008 and early 2009, he presented Dansbandskampen on Sveriges Television.[15] During the winter of 2013-2014, he presented the talk show Settman på plats on Sveriges Television.[16]

Personal lifeEdit

Settman has two sons, Oscar and Elis, by his first wife, Sara Carlsson, and two sons, Simon and Eric, by his second wife, Anna.[7] He resides in the Östermalm district of Stockholm.[7]
