Article courtesy The Herald Scotland. I’m telling her about the London press screening for The Girl Who Played With Fire. Such was the buzz about the second instalment of the hit adaptations of the late Stieg Larsson’s bestselling Millennium novels, the cinema was mobbed. So much so, a second screening had to be hastily arranged for the overflow of critics eager to see Rapace reprise her role as antisocial hacker Lisbeth Salander. For a Hollywood film, this would be unusual. For a Swedish movie with subtitles, it’s unheard of. Then again, this is the Millennium trilogy we’re talking about. A complex, compelling saga of corruption and evil in which Salander must fend for herself in a male-dominated world, the books have sold more than 30 million copies in 40 countries. For Rapace, they have brought her the role of a lifetime, one that’s seen her become world cinema’s brightest new star. Like Marion Cotillard before her – who went from winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose to starring in blockbusters Public Enemies and Inception – Rapace is being sized up for a Hollywood career.

We meet a month after she returned from a summer spent in the US, meeting big-name directors including Ridley Scott, McG and James McTeigue. “I met some wonderful people whom I respect and would love to work with,” says Rapace, who is 30. It’s a heady time – not least with her discussing roles alongside Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 4, McTeigue’s Edgar Allan Poe adaptation The Raven and McG’s spy comedy This Means War. What’s more, the US distributor of the Millennium films is already talking up a possible Oscar nod for Rapace for playing Salander.
