We’re only weeks ago from the (hopefully extensive) promotion for “Unlocked”, and a first stunning new pictorial of Noomi will be released in next week’s Glass Magazine. She graces one of five covers for their “Goddess Issue” and is photographed by Hew Hood. You can get a glimpse below, make sure to grab your copy and visit their website.
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 timeâone 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 womenâs 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. âI am not drawn to characters that are just sweet and cute, or sexy, and beautiful, because it doesnât mean anything,â she says. For the complete issue (and the menâs 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 Alienâs 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. âA lot of people think Iâm quite dark and angry and hardcore and really quite kind of super serious,â she tells me, by way of explanation, âand then they meet me and theyâre like, âOh my God, youâre so funny and you laugh and youâre smiling so much!â and Iâm like, âYeah, why wouldnât I?ââ 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 Scottâs 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? âYes!â 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 Londonâs 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 sheâs in London. Even more appealing, though, is Rapaceâs 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 â she has been powerwalking in a London park for the past 90 minutes. âIt clears my head,â she says. âI can go for three hours or more.â Luckily, she has time for such elongated activity, thanks to her nocturnal habits: âI often just canât sleep. I have too much energy,â she shrugs.
The Independent has a fantastic new interview with Noomi in its weekend edition. They talk about many of her upcoming projects, including “Child 44”, “Alive Alone”, “What Happened to Monday?” and also traveling the world, working with Tom Hardy and the ups and downs of moving constantly. A very interesting article. Find a preview belwo, the complete piece is here.
Noomi Rapace made her name starring in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels in the Millennium trilogy looking like she had just left a new-wave punk band – clad in a leather suit with her black hair combed forward over her left eye, and numerous ear and nose piercings. She was a new type of female hero, combining brains â an ace computer hacker â and brawn. Her gut-wrenching performance as Lisbeth Salander helped propel herself and the books into the international stratosphere. Itâs this complete immersion in her role that explains why the 34-year-old actress looks so emaciated when we meet. At first I was taken aback by how different she is from when we last met, less than two years ago. The dark locks seen in Prometheus have been dyed blond. And her frame, which was then toned by doing an impressive amount of Bikram yoga â an activity pivotal to her character in the Brian De Palma flop Passion â has now dissipated. The weight loss is because she is currently shooting Alive Alone, in which she plays a heroin addict and prostitute who gets entwined in New York with a former detainee from Guantanamo Bay. So, no need to call in the medics then.
Here’s a nice collection of recent interviews that Noomi did with various magazines and online sources. They’re all very in-depth and feature an insightful look on “Dead Man Down”, her career so far and her films ahead (inlcuding “Passion”, “Animal Rescue” and “Child 44”) The complete collection of recently added interviews can be found below.
