Michael Nyqvist at the Los Angeles premiere of 'Abduction' held

Swedish actor Michael Nyqvist, who played the villain in “John Wick” and had a role in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” has died. The actor, 56, died in Stockholm on Tuesday.

His family said in a statement that lung cancer was the cause of death.

Nyqvist spent the first year of his life in an orphanage in Stockholm. He discovered his love for acting in his senior year of high school in 1977 in Omaha, Nebraska.

The actor returned to Sweden and enrolled in ballet school, but quit shortly after to pursue his passion in theater school. But his path to stardom wasn’t an easy one.

It wasn’t until the age of 39 that Nyqvist landed his breakthrough role in the Swedish film “Together,” in which he played an abusive alcoholic husband.

He was then cast in lead roles in both film and television. One of his most notable roles was of Mikael Blomkvist, an investigative reporter, in the Swedish adaptation of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

He also appeared in the Hollywood films “John Wick” and “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol.”

The actor worked on two films before his death, both of which were set in submarines: “Kursk,” an historical drama, and “Hunter Killer,” a thriller in which he starred alongside Gary Oldman and Gerard Butler.

Nyqvist detailed his life in an autobiography, in which he discusses his life in an orphanage, his adoption, his stint as a foreign exchange student in Nebraska and his search for his biological parents. Nyqvist eventually located and met with both of his parents.

His biological father, Marcello, worked as a pharmacist in Florence, Italy. His biological mother was Swedish, and he met with her for an hour in a Stockholm cafe.

In addition to acting, Nyqvist wrote several books, including “Just After Dreaming.” He is survived by his wife, Catharina, and his two children.

NEW YORK-APR 8: Actress Michelle Rodriguez attends the premiere of "The Fate of the Furious" at Radio City Music Hall on April 8, 2017 in New York City.

NEW YORK-APR 8: Actress Michelle Rodriguez attends the premiere of “The Fate of the Furious” at Radio City Music Hall on April 8, 2017 in New York City.

Actress Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Letty Ortiz in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, has threatened to leave the ninth installment of the film.

Rodriguez, who has played a role in the franchise since the first film, wrote on Instagram on Tuesday that she may not return to the film.

The actress posted the following to her account:

“F8 is out digitally today. I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one. Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise. It’s been a good ride & I’m grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love.”

While the “Fast and Furious” franchise has seen top female stars, like Helen Mirren, Gal Gadot, Elsa Pataky and Charlize Theron, the films’ stories have focused mainly on the male characters.

“I’ve been making movies with Jordana, who plays the sister of Dom Toretto, for 16 years and I can count on one hand how many lines I’ve had with her. I think that’s pathetic and it’s lack of creativity,” Rodriguez told EW.

In August 2015, Rodriguez opened up to E!News about wanting to join the 8th installment of the franchise and her hopes for future installments.

“The grand majority of the time in films, we’re always fighting each other,” she said. I feel like it’s time to evolve girls. Let’s stop hitting each other and let’s stop fighting each other, and let’s start getting together and ganging up on people.”

She also said that the film’s plot has to be relevant.

“Whatever the storyline is, it needs to be relevant,” she said. “I think there’s only so many times that you can keep repeating history. What happened with “Fast 7,” I don’t want to say it’s a fluke, but people came out of the woodwork to show love for Paul, and that’s something you’re not going to have in the equation with the next one. Whatever it is that they cook up needs to touch the hearts and souls of people.”

There have rumors of a spinoff film starring Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Charlize Theron. But “Fast and Furious 9″ and “Fast and Furious 10″ are already confirmed to be in development.

Kim Kardashian West at the Los Angeles premiere of 'The Promise' held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, USA on April 12, 2017.

Kim Kardashian West at the Los Angeles premiere of ‘The Promise’ held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, USA on April 12, 2017.

Kim Kardashian West is in the spotlight again on Tuesday after pictures surfaced of the celebrity television star’s child, Saint West, seen in a front-facing car seat. The photo, uploaded to social media by Kardashian, received immediate backlash from fans who said Kardashian was endangering her child.

California law mandates that kids under 2 years old must be placed in a rear-facing car seat. Similar legislation is pending in NY.

The exception to the rule are children that are 40 inches tall or over 40 pounds. The exact measurements for Saint are not known. The picture may have not been taken in California, also negating the law.

One commenter wrote, “He is so cute let’s protect this handsome boy by making sure he is rear facing.” Fans of Kardashian quickly came to her defense, with many stating that moms were overreacting to the picture. Saint is 18 months old and it’s possible that he exceeds 40 pounds or 40 inches, according to some reports.

The mandate is new, which also means that Kardashian may not be aware of the law – or wasn’t before posting her son’s picture.

Kardashian is also in the news on Tuesday over rumors that she hired a surrogate mother to carry her third child with rapper Kanye West. The news, broke last week by E! News, states that Kim has hired a surrogate due to her issues with placenta accreta. The condition makes pregnancy potentially life-threatening for the reality star.

The star couple chose to go through an agency to hire a surrogate mother for their third child.

Hollywood Life broke the news yesterday that the couple is now expecting twins via their surrogate. The publication ran an exclusive on the news, which you can read on their site. Insiders reveal that the couple wanted to have twins and want to have a big family. Twins would make the couple father and mother to four children in total.
