Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows star Noomi Rapace spoke to Blackbook Magazine via Skype (she is currently based in Sweden), about playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish/Danish version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
“I felt like she lived in me,” Rapace said of playing the dark character. “My Lisbeth was my Lisbeth. I gave her my life and my soul for one-and-a-half years, and then I was finished.” Now she’s ready to hand off the reigns to Rooney Mara.
“I’m so done with her,” Rapace told Blackbook of her character. While the cast and crew celebrated the final take, Rapace vomited in the bathroom, purging Salander. “My whole body was just kind of throwing Lisbeth out of me.” For a week after, Rapace found it difficult to shake her character. “I was like, I don’t know who I am anymore!”
