Robin Wright is "happy to be back" in mainstream films.

The 45-year-old star - who has previously starred in 'Forrest Gump' and 'The Princess Bride' - has returned to her first big screen role in some years as media mogul Erika in the eagerly anticipated 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', and she admits it took work from her "team" to help get her back into that position.

She said: "I was doing some great independent pieces, but I wasn't in The Game and you've got to play it. Over the past couple of years my team pumped the machine and got me back on the assembly line and I'm so happy to be back. Yes, you have to go out there and publicise yourself again and create yourself again, but that's the game."

She is particularly pleased to be make her comeback with the movie - which also stars Daniel Craig and Noomi Rapace - as she relates so well to her character.

She said: "I feel so many of the parts I get offered, or that are written for women, are just the subordinate other half. But someone like Erika in 'Dragon Tattoo' is independent, individual, a 21st century woman. I have a slight Swedish accent in the film, but apart from that I'm basically playing me."
