Michael Nyqvist

Yesterday, we lost one of the most beloved and admired actors of all time, Michael Nyqvist. I can’t really explain why I feel so incredibly sad by these news–I’ve always been deeply touched by the characters Michael represented throughout his career. Relatable, honest, real. According to a number of news sources, Michael battled lung cancer during the past one year.

This is a song from one of my favourite films in the world, with Michael as one of the main actors. I think its translated with subtitles into so many different language–simply because of its pure brilliance. This song from the movie, by Helene Sjöholm, is also so special.

“I want to feel that I live
And all the time that I have
I will live as I wish
I want to feel that I live
And know that I am enough
I want to live happily for being me
Be strong and free
See how night turns into day
I am here and my life is mine alone
And the heaven I thought existed”

Isn’t life so weird to think about? Someone who was here just yesterday is forever gone, today.

Michael, you will be greatly missed. Thank you for everything.
