Oscar Åberg (May 1, 1882 Norrköping-September 17, 1952 Uppland) was a Swedish actor.

He began his career at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm where he worked from 1907 to 1919. Åberg then went on to work at a number of other theaters, including the Södra Teatern and the Blancheteatern, and also appeared in a number of films, including "Ladislaus i äventyrarnas land" (1916) and "Dårskapens hus" (1920). Despite his success on stage and screen, Åberg is perhaps best remembered for his work in radio, where he became one of the most popular broadcasters in Sweden during the 1930s and early 1940s. In addition to his work as an actor and broadcaster, he also wrote several books and worked as a translator.

One of Oscar Åberg's most notable achievements was his role as the founder and artistic director of the Södermalmsteatern in Stockholm. He established the theater in 1938, and it quickly became a cultural hub in the city's artistic scene. Åberg directed numerous productions at the Södermalmsteatern, and helped launch the careers of several young actors and playwrights. In addition to his contributions to Swedish culture, Åberg was also known for his philanthropy. He was a generous supporter of various charities, including organizations that provided aid to struggling artists and their families. Åberg passed away in 1952 at the age of 70, but his legacy lives on through his contributions to Swedish culture and his charitable work.
