Quotes

#Quote
1 [on what inspired her to become an actress] I wasn't brought up in the acting world-my father is a lawyer. But as a teenager, I had the opportunity to audition for this television series: a daytime soap opera. And I got the lead part. I had just finished ninth grade in school, so I skipped what we called gymnasium and started working instead. And realized that this is a life I can see myself living.
2 At an early age, singing was something I found fun, but I never saw myself as a singer. My mother was in the avant-garde of cultural life in Sweden. She actually helped to translate ABBA's 'Waterloo' from Swedish to English. Remember the woman sitting cross-legged on a chair on the album's cover? That was my mom with the band-and they were wearing her clothes. How cool is that? And she didn't save any of it.
3 [on when she heard about the job in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015)] I was on a camel! In the desert. In Ouarzazat [Morocco]. Filming The Red Tent (2014) for Lifetime. I had just popped over to London to meet Tom Cruise to see if the chemistry worked and 12 hours later I'm back on the camel, wrapping up production and I got a phone call. They say: 'You've got the next lead!' So I'll be back in Ouarzazat but on a motorbike! And there I was a month later.
4 [on if she feels Swedish] I do. And I feel English as well which is why I like the combination when I can do an English film and speak a bit of Swedish. It's a mish-mash. My mum's English and my father's Swedish. But I feel sort of French when I'm in France even though I have no connection to it! I think I remind myself of Ilsa [her character in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015)] in that because I adapt and I think that's the world we live in as well - doors are more open now thank God.
5 I've been very lucky to have strong women characters to play.
6 I need challenging roles. I look forward to reading a script where I call my agent and go, 'What the f**k are you thinking? Of course I can't do this!' I'd like to be uncomfortable and challenge that.
7 [on doing her own stunts in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015)] Jumping off a rooftop is one thing, but having your legs wrapped around Tom Cruise makes it a bit easier.
8 [on her inspiration to play Ilsa Faust in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015)] I looked at Ingrid Bergman a lot. There's a gracefulness there that I wanted to bring in. Mission is fast and action-packed and intense and modern, so to be able to balance that with the input of something classic-it's a beautiful mixture.
