Noomi Rapace found fame across the world playing the fearless Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. The films based on the Millennium thrillers are now a decade behind the Swedish actress, who went on to co-star with Michael Fassbender, Glenn Close, Tom Hardy and Will Smith in a succession of Hollywood blockbusters. Yet, Rapace says, the fighting spirit of the heroine of the late Stieg Larsson’s hit novels continues to burn within her.
“Stieg would be so upset today,” she said. “He would go ballistic about everything that is going on. I feel I know that.”
