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.
