(Newser) – Uma Thurman is going back to her roots: The 48-year-old actress is looking into becoming a Swedish citizen and plans to move to the Nordic country, the Local reports. "She wants to buy a house in Sweden and live here in the future," her lawyer, Thomas Bodstrom, told a Swedish radio station this week. "She has a lot of relatives in Skåne so there are a lot of things that make her want to become a Swede; she has felt Swedish her entire life. We hope it will go well but it’s also a long process."
