Yesterday, Noomi has attended a Q&A held by BAFTA for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” in London. Many thanks to Mariana for bringing this to my attention.
Best For Film has a nice post on the evening with a couple of quotes. Finally settling down to watch The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I was surprised to find Noomi Rapace arrive to greet the audience for an informal Q&A. A combination of seasoned fans and casual movie-goers made for an interesting interaction as the franchise regular answered questions on everything from her love of Sid and Nancy, her burgeoning respect for those who pen movie subtitles, to her involvement in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes 2. Speaking with surprising honesty about her years as ‘The Girl Who Destroyed The Box Office’, Rapace made it clear that while she harbours a great love for the character she played over three movies, she was not sorry to leave Lisbeth Salander behind. She admitted that with filming finished and her work over , “all the producers wanted to celebrate on the last day but I had to go to the bathroom and throw up. It felt so good to get it all out.” The complete article can be read here.
Edit: Here’s 35 minutes of Noomi’s BAFTA Q&A, found on Vimeo. Enjoy watching!
