"Girl Who Played With Fire" Actor Feared Dead in Fire

Posted: January 3rd, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Girl Who Played With Fire" Actor Feared Dead in FireSubmit Comment
Swedish actor Per Oscarsson, who co-stars in two films based on Stieg Larsson's popular "Millennium" book trilogy, appears to have died in a house fire, police told the Associated Press.

The remains of one person were found Sunday in the ashes of the house and are probably those of the 83-year-old actor or his wife, 67-year-old Kia Ostling. Both were reported missing by relatives, who say the couple apparently was home when the fire destroyed the house early Friday. Authorities are still searching for the remains of a second person.

Oscarsson, described as a "giant of Swedish cinema," has starred in more than 100 Swedish films and TV series. He won a best actor award at the Festival de Cannes in 1966 for his role in "Hunger."

In the Swedish versions of "The Girl Who Played With Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked Hornet's Nest," based on Larsson's books, Oscarsson played Holger Palmgren, the legal guardian to the heroine, Lisbeth Salander.

"Girl Who Played With Fire" Actor Feared Dead in Fire ... talk about a title playing on irony ...

This is sad, I'm from Sweden and this guy was a Legend. You will be missed. You were awesome in "Kan du vissla Johanna?" (Can You Whistle, Johanna?)

R.I.P Per Oscarsson.

The question on the minds of Swedish arson investigators: where was Charlene McGee at the time?

Or Drew Barrymore.

I know where she was: on her back.

It's not like she acts anymore.

@Rambo - 'A Kind of Magic' by Queen is such a great album too!

Barrymore used to be cute, but that was before she got that "I f*cked a horse and I liked it" look.
