  • Swedish actress Noomi Rapace was born into a show business family, with a mother involved in acting and a father who worked as a flamenco singer. By the age of seven, Rapace was making minor appearances in movies and TV shows in her adoptive home of Iceland, where she moved at age five with her mother and stepfather. At 15, the burgeoning performer returned to Sweden and enrolled in Stockholm Theatre School, and just a few years later, she was scoring paid roles on camera. She would spend the '90s and 2000s earning numerous accolades both on-stage and in film in Europe, though she would become an international sensation when she was cast as iconic character Lisbeth Salander in the big-screen adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the first in a popular series of Swedish books. The film transcended borders and became a hit in the U.S., as well, and she would reprise the role for two sequels. By 2011, Rapace was taking her talent directly to English-speaking audiences, appearing in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes 2, and following that up the next year as the lead in Ridley Scott's Alien prequel Prometheus.

QUOTES FROM Noomi Rapace CHARACTERS

Elizabeth Shaw
Final report of the vessel Prometheus. The ship and her entire crew are gone. If you're receiving this transmission, make no attempt to come to its point of origin. 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
A wagon is too slow. Can't you ride?
Dr. John Watson
It's not that he can't ride. How is it that you put it, Holmes?
Sherlock Holmes
(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?
Sherlock Holmes

If we don't stop it, there won't be a home to go back to!

David
Well... I guess that's because I'm a human being, and you're a robot.
David
But, may I ask what you hope to achieve by going there?
Elizabeth Shaw
They created us then they tried to kill us. They changed their minds. I deserve to know why.
Elizabeth Shaw
I don't want to go back where we came from. I want to go where they came from. You think you can do that, David?
David
Yes. I believe I can...

David
Whoops, sorry.
Elizabeth Shaw
I don't want to go where we came from. I want to go where they came from.

David

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

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.

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