In 2003, Noomi guest starred on “Tusenbröder”, a very successful Swedish thriller series, led by her husband Ola Rapace as Hoffa, a bank robberer on the run. Captures have been added to the gallery.

Noomi appears briefly in the second season’s fifth episode as the nurse of an old woman, who has been killed the night before by Hoffa’s unstable partner in crime. Alongside the caps, three clips of Noomi’s scenes have been added as well. Enjoy!

Noomi is featured among Time Magazine’s Great Performances of 2010. Here’s what they have to say (love the last sentence): For a year and a half, she poured such fury and craft, so much of herself, into Lisbeth Salander – the tattooed hacker in the three Swedish films of Stieg Larsson’s best sellers – that friends told her, “You’ve been in there a while now, Noomi. Maybe it’s time to come out.” And when the shoot was over, she says, “my body just threw her out from me. I was sick for a week.” The trilogy was a worldwide hit, and Rapace, 31, was the great new face of 2010. She

won’t reprise Lisbeth in the U.S. remake, but it’d be a shame if Hollywood let this 21st century Garbo stay in Sweden. Besides the stunning photograph of Noomi above, Time has also a video interview with the actress, discussing her favorite performances. This and more can be viewed on Time.com.

Variety reports that Charlize Theron will join Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender in what was originally an “Alien” prequel until it was subsequently not. That was until today when Fassbender told MTV News the film has a “definite connecting vein” with Scott’s classic. The Brit noted, “When I read it, I was like,’Well, okay, another Alien. Where do you go with this idea?’ And then I sort of read the script, and it’s new, yet it’s in keeping with the old traditions as well. But there’s a whole new revelation within this film.”
