Paul Seelig (5 October 1900 – 5 August 1931) was a Swedish actor.[1] He appeared in about 15 roles in films 1913 and 1931. His film debut was in Mauritz Stiller's film En pojke i livets strid in 1913, when he was thirteen years old.

He was the son of the actor and tour leader Emil van der Osten (1848-1905) and the actress Lotten Lundberg-Seelig (1867-1924). Paul Seelig left Sweden in the late 1920s, first to film in Germany, then at Paramount in Paris. In the summer of 1931, he was killed in France, under yet-unknown circumstances.
