Thanks to her work in The Crown, Claire Foy knows a thing or two about taking on larger than life characters. Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara each took on the force of nature known as Lisbeth Salander, and know it’s Foy’s turn to make her mark with The Girl in the Spider’s Web.
“I can only speak for myself as a person who’s read the books,” said Foy, who was seen earlier this year in the Steven Soderbergh thriller Unsane. “Lisbeth represents something different to every single person who reads about her or watches her. But for me I think she’s someone who doesn’t operate in the way that we all believe that we should do. She has no respect for authority because she’s been failed every single point in her life by people who have supposed to have taken care for her. She is someone who is moved to do things and she doesn’t know why.”
