Look below and you will know Michael Nyqvist’s words of wisdom…“I think the whole mission of being here on Earth is to accept what you have, and my journey was to accept my own life and not pretend anything else. I think that’s what we all struggle with.” “Now I have a very good life and I am very proud of my work.” “I was not allowed to talk about being adopted when growing up. I walked around feeling like I was going to explode.” “If I compared myself to my kids, they know everything, and they’re like small little hackers. I feel also that my identity can be stolen; I’m very paranoid about it compared to other people in the younger generation.” “Canada was for me very much Sweden, you know? Very much open people, that they read books, they go see films. I felt at home in Canada. And also, you speak French.” “Where I come from, it’s a little bit like England. We start from the theater, and we do films a bit on our free time. The history of making films in Scandinavia is so old, it’s like the oldest. The Nordic film industry started before Hollywood in Stockholm in Copenhagen.” “Sweden is a great country. What is not so great is that we have a society that, in a way, says it’s great if you don’t look right, if you don’t look left, if you just look straight forward.” “David Fincher is one of the best directors I know, so I’m really curious to see it. Really curious, and I want to hear Daniel have the Swedish accent.” Michael Nyqvist Dead: Full Story & Must-See DetailsMichael Nyqvist, star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and John Wick died onCLICK HERE TO READ MORE →
