Michael Nyqvist's quotes

  • Now I have a very good life and I am very proud of my work.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 Craig] have the Swedish accent.
  • I was not allowed to talk about being adopted when growing up. I walked around feeling like I was going to explode.
  • 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.
  • I think the power of Stieg Larsson's stories is that he has the guts to show the hidden spots in the side of Sweden. That gave us a push to say that for the first time. That they can't have with the American version.
  • My early films were very European-based. It was As It Is in Heaven (2004), Together (2000), they were great international successes, but then I did, I think, 60 movies or something.
  • 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.
