When we say you might know Noomi Rapace from her roles as Lisbeth Salander, it's no joke; a full one third of her best-known projects involve playing the tattooed hacker, including this one. Millennium, a six-part miniseries which originally aired on Swedish television, is technically an extended cut of the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film trilogy (if you're looking for it in the U.S., you'll likely find it on Netflix in the form of a nine-hour mega-movie called Dragon Tattoo Trilogy: Extended Edition). But the theatrical release left so much material on the cutting-room floor that Millennium stands on its own as a unique dramatic work for the small screen.
All told, Rapace spent a full year playing Lisbeth, a performance that resulted three feature films and six television episodes' worth of raw material. However, once she was done, she was really done. In an interview with NPR, the actress said, "[It] was kind of strange. You know the last day, after [we filmed] the last scene, all the producers came with champagne and everybody wanted to celebrate. And I just said, 'I need to go to the bathroom,' and I just started to throw up. It was like my body was physically throwing Lisbeth out."
