Noomi Rapace captured the attention of filmgoers with a gripping and explosive performance in the Swedish film "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (2009). The actress played a gutsy and troubled computer hacker named Lisbeth Salander, a character based on Stieg Larsson's 2005 best-selling novel of the same name. Rapace's performance resonated among critics and audiences who loved to watch a strong yet complex female character on screen. Rapace reprised her breakout role in two other films from Larsson's "Millennium Trilogy" (2005-07) - "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" - both released in 2009. Even though she was not cast in the American film version, Rapace capitalized on her popularity and landed featured parts in mainstream Hollywood projects. Still, it was the commitment and passion she threw into the physically and emotionally demanding role in the original "Dragon Tattoo" that catapulted Rapace from an independent film ingénue into an internationally renowned star.

QUOTES FROM Noomi Rapace CHARACTERS

There is only death here now, and I'm leaving it behind. It is New Year's Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My name is Elisabeth Shaw, last survivor of the Prometheus. And I am still searching.

Madam Simza Heron says: A wagon is too slow. Can't you ride?

Dr. John Watson says: It's not that he can't ride. How is it that you put it, Holmes?

Sherlock Holmes says: (Horses) They're dangerous at both ends and crafty in the middle. Why would I want anything with a mind of its own bobbing about between my legs?

David says: Whoops, sorry.

Sim says: The wagon is too slow. Can't you ride?

Dr. John Watson says: It's not that he can't ride... How is it you put it, Holmes?

Sherlock Holmes says: There’re dangerous at both ends and crafty in the middle. Why would I want anything with a mind of its own bobbing about between my legs? Then I should require a bicycle thank you very much. It’s 1891, could have chartered a balloon.

Dr. John Watson says: [to Sim] How can we make this more manageable?

Sherlock Holmes says: [a band of horses rides past, after a moment Holmes follows them riding a little pony] Slow and steady wins the race!
