Here comes a great article by Vice‘s Early Works section, in which Noomi Rapace recalls her upbringing and first acting job in Sweden and her transition from an unknown theatre actress to Salander superstar. The complete article can be read here.

We lived in Iceland when I was a child, and my stepdad is Icelandic. My mother was a drama teacher and acted in smaller theater groups—very alternative. I was brought to an Icelandic viking film set when I was seven, because there were children in the film. I ended up being in the film for three weeks, and I loved it. It was a very brutal, bloody, muddy, intense, crazy film. The director was very loud and quite demanding. There was one specific night where we’d been shooting for 15 hours; the lead actress was tired, and people wanted to take a break. I was doing the same thing over and over, and all of a sudden the director had this big outburst. He was screaming, “What is wrong with you guys? Look at this girl! How old are you?” I said, “Seven,” and he said, “She’s seven years old, and she’s not complaining! This is a real actress!” I was like, “Wow!” I kept that in my heart.

Noomi Rapace is featured on today’s cover of The Sunday Times Style, which included a terrific new photoshoot. Forget Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba — could the 37-year-old Swedish actress Noomi Rapace be the outside bet to be the next James Bond? I wouldn’t have asked, but in her new film, Unlocked, she plays a fearsome spy dashing around London being endlessly double-crossed in her attempts to thwart a biological weapons attack. Orlando Bloom plays her sexy bit of fluff, she goes for power cocktails with Michael Douglas, and almost manages to make jumping a fence in 4in heels look like a credible character choice. In short, it is the perfect audition tape for 007, albeit minus the one appendage traditionally associated with the role. You can read the complete article with a subscription over at The Sunday Times.

For e-tailers like MatchesFashion.com, print media offers a fresh way to curate the brand. The London-based luxury site publishes a biannual magazine, The Style Report, with two issues at a time—one for men, one for women. The zine features current must-have clothes, accessories, and jewelry, naturally, along with stories about industry tastemakers. The face of the fourth women’s issue is Noomi Rapace, whom you probably know from her turns in Prometheus and the Swedish version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. In the interview, Rapace discusses the contrast between her gritty characters and her real-life love of fashion. “I am not drawn to characters that are just sweet and cute, or sexy, and beautiful, because it doesn’t mean anything,” she says. For the complete issue (and the men’s version, which stars Zachary Quinto), head over to MatchesFashion.com today.

With Noomi currently shooting “Unlocked” in London, there isn’t much to report. Therefore, I’ve checked what has been left to update, and found a bunch of magazine scans to be added. They include the British Time Out (thanks Alvaro) and Stella Magazine (great cover), the US Porter Magazine as well as the French Grazia magazine, with many thanks to Mina. Enjoy the new scans.

The Telegraph has a fantastic new interview: Noomi Rapace arrives for our interview looking gloriously mad, like the love-child of Lady Gaga and Alien’s Ellen Ripley. She is a vision in a Balmain boiler-suit, open to the waist to reveal a chest of gold jewellery and a pin-stripe bra. On her feet are a pair of six-inch Sergio Rossi boots, and on her peroxide blonde head a pair of sparkling sunglasses that appear to have been mined from the moon. “A lot of people think I’m quite dark and angry and hardcore and really quite kind of super serious,” she tells me, by way of explanation, “and then they meet me and they’re like, ‘Oh my God, you’re so funny and you laugh and you’re smiling so much!’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, why wouldn’t I?’” Because you like to play women who are quite dark and angry and hardcore and super serious, I say, thinking of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (she was the lead in the original, Swedish version), and Elizabeth Shaw, the ripped scientist in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus who gives herself a caesarian after realising she is pregnant with an alien. Because most of the women you play are quite, you know, scarred? “Yes!” the 34-year-old Swede giggles wildly. The complete interview can be read here.

The British Edit magazine has a fantastic new cover story and pictorial on Noomi Rapace in their September 28 issue. Have a look at the pictures below, as well as an excerpt of their exclusive interview.

It is a pleasure meeting Noomi Rapace partly because, unlike so many actors, she is clearly enjoying her fame. She parties with model Lily Cole at London’s Maddox club (pictures on her phone prove that much dancing occurred); grabs the opportunity to sit front row (Lanvin, Berardi, Givenchy); and stays at celebrity favorite The Groucho Club whenever she’s in London. Even more appealing, though, is Rapace’s consummate passion for the work from which all these perks originate. When we convene at 9:30am, she is wearing a tracksuit and Riccardo Tisci for Nike trainers – she has been powerwalking in a London park for the past 90 minutes. “It clears my head,” she says. “I can go for three hours or more.” Luckily, she has time for such elongated activity, thanks to her nocturnal habits: “I often just can’t sleep. I have too much energy,” she shrugs.
