‘Dragon Tattoo’ actor Nyqvist dies aged 56
    2017-June-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ACTOR Michael Nyqvist, who starred in the film adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” has died aged 56, his family has announced.

Nyqvist played journalist Mikael Blomkvist in that film and its sequels, which formed the “Millennium” trilogy.

The Swedish actor died Tuesday after a year-long battle with lung cancer, according to a family statement.

Nyqvist’s love of the arts was “felt by all who had the pleasure of working with him,” the family added.

“The popular Swedish actor and writer began his training at the Malmö Theater Academy in Sweden.

He was best known for his role in “Dragon Tattoo” (2009). In a subsequent U.S. version of the film, his role was performed by James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

Nyqvist later appeared in a number of Hollywood blockbusters. He played the villain alongside Tom Cruise in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” and starred as Viggo Tarasov in “John Wick” with Keanu Reeves.

He went on to star in the 2015 film “Colonia,” opposite Daniel Brühl and Emma Watson.

Nyqvist also wrote an acclaimed memoir, “Just After Dreaming,” published in 2010, about his earliest childhood memories following adoption and how he later traced his biological parents.

Nyqvist is survived by his wife, Catharina Ehrnrooth, and their children, Ellen and Arthur. (SD-Agencies)
