Claire Foy is one of Britain’s most badass female actors so it’s little surprise she’s just landed a major new movie role.
The star of The Crown has been unveiled as the protagonist of The Girl in the Spider’s Web, the much-anticipated follow-up to The Girl With The Dragon’s Tattoo.
The trailer for the upcoming film has just been released and Claire, who has replaced Rooney Mara, looks completely unrecognisable as Lisbeth Salander.
While we’re accustomed to seeing her donning a curly wig and lavish pearls as the Queen in The Crown, she’s ditched her crown jewels for badass piercings, a choppy black pixie cut hairstyle and plenty of leather.
In the trailer, we see her using a trap to capture a villainous husband, hang him upside down and tell him that he will turn over his assets to the wife he abuses.
“I’m a fan of yours – the CEO who beat up two prostitutes, but then got acquitted in court yesterday,” she says in the clip. “I’m transferring 20% of your cash to these two girls, the rest I’m transferring to your wife.”
