Article courtesy the New Zealand Herald: Noomi Rapace is finished with her role as prickly computer hacker Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium film trilogy – and she’s caustic about plans for a remake. By Helen Barlow. In the third movie of the Millennium trilogy, The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest – out Boxing Day – one of the men trying to undermine the brilliance of Lisbeth Salander remarks on her tiny stature. When you meet Noomi Rapace, you have the same impression. The petite Swedish 30-year-old is an acting powerhouse in the same way that Lisbeth is a hacker par excellence. Certainly Hollywood has taken notice as Rapace is currently filming Sherlock Holmes II with Robert Downey Jnr. in London.

“I always felt like I was going to leave Sweden one day and when I was a kid I was lying to everyone how I was leaving soon,” recalls Rapace. “Probably I always felt a bit on my way. But I don’t have a dream of being a Hollywood superstar. I want to be an actress, that’s all. “I don’t care if I work on a studio production or a small independent film from Ukraine. All I care about are the characters and the stories.” Read More

It’s still quite early in 2011’s awards season, but ABC News is predicting who will have chances at this year’s Oscars – also mentioning Noomi. The full article can be read here:

Noomi Rapace may also have a shot for her work playing the facially grommeted punk hacker Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish movie “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” (Rapace also starred in the two subsequent films in the series.) “You don’t often see female characters like the one played by Rapace, who was a startling screen presence,” said MaryAnn Johanson (of flickfilosopher.com). “She made a huge impression on movie goers and probably on Academy members as well.” However, the fact that “Dragon Tattoo” contained subtitles may prove to be its undoing. “Academy voters often disregard foreign movies outside the ‘foreign film’ category,” she said.

Article courtesy People Magazine: When Noomi Rapace won the role of the gutsy Lisbeth Salander in Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo films, she knew it would change her life. But not quite the way she expected. “I thought everyone would hate me!” says Rapace, 30, who transformed herself into an androgynous, punky, chain-smoking computer hacker for the three Swedish movies. “The readers of the books have such a strong relationship with her as a character, I thought they’d never accept what I did with Lisbeth. It felt like a suicide mission to accept the role.” To prepare, Rapace trained kick-boxing four times a week for seven months, dieted, got a motorcycle license, cut her hair and pierced herself a total of six times. Her 7-year-old son – with Swedish actor Ola Rapace – was at first hesitant about his mom’s new look. “For the first movie, he asked me, ‘Mom, why do you want to look like a teenage boy?'” she says. “For the last movie, I shaved my head on both sides like a Mohawk. I brought him with me when I did it, because I didn’t want to come home and look like Edward Scissorhands and scare him! He sat there and looked at me and said, ‘Mom, why are you doing this?’ After a while, he said, ‘I think it looks good! I want a hairdo like that, too!’ That’s when I said, ‘Stop!'”
