Although Rooney Mara is about to show American audiences how dedicated she is to her role as Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl With The Dragaon Tattoo," the actress isn't a fan of one of her earliest roles.

The 26-year-old appeared in a 2006 episode of "Law & Order:Special Victims Unit" in an episode titled "Fat." Mara, who was then credited as Tricia Mara after her first name Patricia, played a girl named Jessica DeLay who gets attacked by two overweight students. The audience later learns that DeLay initiated attacks on her classmates.

It was Mara's first television credit and second on-screen acting role. The show is currently in its 13th season.

Stieg Larsson, who wrote "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest," which became hugely popular after his death, left a $38 million fortune to his father and brother.

His brother, Joakim Larsson has now fought back against Stieg's longtime companion who made claims that his family is commercializing Larsson's legacy for profit. Eva Gabrielsson, the writer's partner of three decades, inherited nothing because the couple wasn't married and there wasn't a will when Larsson died of a heart attack in 2004.
