PROMETHEUS

NOOMI RAPACE (Elizabeth Shaw) captured the eyes of the international entertainment community with her commanding, unnerving and critically acclaimed portrayal of Lisbeth Salander in the film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.  

Rapace was recently seen opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in Guy Ritchie's sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, portraying gypsy fortuneteller, Sim, who sees more than she is telling.

Currently, Rapace is in production on director Brian de Palma's Passion, opposite Rachel McAdams. She plays the role of Isabelle, an ambitious advertising executive who plots revenge after her boss and mentor steal her idea. Following this, Rapace is slated to begin the action thriller Dead Man Down, in which she reunites with director Niels Arden Oplev and stars opposite Colin Farrell. Rapace will portray Beatrice, a crime victim seeking retribution.  

Rapace began her acting career at the age of seven, in Iceland's In the Shadow of the Raven. She has since gone to appear in over twenty films and television shows. In 2007, she made her mark on the big screen with a breakthrough performance in the 2007 Danish film, Daisy Diamond. In the film, Rapace portrays a troubled teen-mother who leaves her home to pursue a dream, ultimately failing and having a breakdown with fatal consequences. For her performance, she was honored with the Bodil Award (Danish Critics Award) and a Robert Award (Denmark's Academy Award) for Best Actress.  

Rapace garnered high praise for her breakthrough performance in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the first installment of the Millennium Trilogy which opened in February 2009 in Sweden. She won the Best Actress Guldbagge Award (Swedish Academy Award) and the Best Actress International Jupiter Award (Germany), in addition to being nominated for an Orange British Academy Film Award for Lead Actress and a Best Actress European Film Award for her role. Rapace garnered subsequent praise for her performances in the second and third installments, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.  

Additional credits include Pernilla August's directorial debut, Beyond (Svinalägorna), in Sweden. The film screened at the 2010 Venice Film Festival and won the Venice Critic's Week prize. Based on the best-selling novel, the film is a poignant story about a young girl's dramatic childhood growing up in a home plagued by abuse and alcoholism. Following Beyond, Rapace was seen in Pål Sletaune's Norwegian thriller Babycall, about a young mother who believes she overhears a murder. For her performance, Rapace received the Best Actress honor at the 2011 Rome Film Festival.  

Born in Sweden, Rapace is the daughter of Flamenco singer Rogelio Duran.
