Interview: Noomi Rapace on Prometheus

In the last few years, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace has been transitioning into a respected and in-demand actress in Hollywood after getting attention as the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in the Scandinavian “Millennium” thrillers before playing a gypsy in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.

Although Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is very much an ensemble piece, her Dr. Elizabeth Shaw is very much the central character as it’s her desire to find answers to where we came from that sends her and a crew of 17 on the exploration vessel Prometheus into the furthest reaches of space to answer an invitation found on ancient cave paintings.

ShockTillYouDrop.com attended the London junket for the movie and sat in on a roundtable with the actress alongside some of the internet’s crack journalists to hear her talk about working with Ridley and the influence of the original Alien‘s leading lady, Sigourney Weaver, among other things.
