Welcome to Noomi Rapace Online, your premiere web resource on the Swedish actress. Best known for her performances as Lisbeth Salander in the original "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" film trilogy, "Prometheus" and the recent Indie smash "Lamb", Noomi Rapace has emerged as one of the most exciting European actresses of this decade. This unofficial fansite provides you with all latest news, photos, editorials and video clips on her past and present work. Enjoy your stay and check back soon.
Cinema Blend has observed that Noomi is eligible to enter next year’s awards race for the Academy Awards: Noomi Rapace is a name that most of you probably still don’t know. Maybe that’ll change, because she deserves an Oscar nomination for her work as Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Though the movie was first released in Sweden in 2009 Deadline confirms that she is eligible for nomination. Her performance is the best thing I’ve seen this year.
Whether or not she gets an Oscar nomination, Hollywood has already decided to sit up and take note of her talent. While she won’t show up in the unnecessary Americanization of Dragon Tattoo, the actress is getting offers for roles in all sorts of big budget American films, specifically Sherlock Holmes 2 and Mission: Impossible 4. No word on exactly what part she’d play in those movies, but she’s too talented to be wasted on a minor cameo. Hopefully she’ll also avoid being typecast as the cliché, leather-wearing, punk female badass she pulls off in Dragon Tattoo and its sequels. Apparently Rapace is nothing like Lisbeth Salander in person, which only makes her performance more impressive, and her potential as an actress even more tantalizing.
