Claire Foy Has 'No Interest In Portraying What Other People Think of as Strong'

Claire Foy shows off her unique style while attending the photo call for her latest film The Girl in the Spider’s Web held at Villamagna Hotel on Tuesday (October 30) in Madrid, Spain.

The 34-year-old actress opened up about reviving the iconic Lisbeth Salander after it was previously played by Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara in previous films.

“I’d already re-read all the books and I just started thinking about what I didn’t want to do,” Claire expressed. “I felt very strongly that I didn’t want to just say she has a mohawk and loads of tattoos and the job’s done. I wanted to go back and understand why she has those things and why she wants to create a veneer of unapproachability so I could make sense of it.”

“I have absolutely no interest in portraying what other people think of as strong. It’s a way of making women more acceptable in a male world, and I am just not on board with that,” Claire continued. “I don’t think women are crying out to see strong women; I think we know we are all strong but we’re just crying out to see women on screen at all!”
