Helen Sokalski, Port Charlotte, Fla.
Well, for one thing, she has some stiff competition tonight at the Academy Awards (8 p.m. ET on ABC). The 26-year-old New York native, who plays the surly hacker Lisbeth Salander in Dragon Tattoo, is nominated for best actress alongside Meryl Streep, Glenn Close and Viola Davis. She’s filming the new Terrence Malick film Lawless this year, but expect her to don Lisbeth’s piercings and punk look again: She has signed on for the Dragon Tattoo sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire, now in development.
