I’ve only just now realized Swedish actor Michael Nyqvist passed away last year from lung cancer at 56. And I’m super bummed about this. I loved watching him work.
You may recognize him from the Swedish produced Girl with Dragon Tattoo films, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, or John Wick. But he’d been making films for years before that, obviously.
At least we’ll always have his villain in John Wick. He was a combination of nasty and goofy. It’s a fun performance to watch.
