I’ve been able to re-upload screencaptures in better quality from two of Noomi’s earlier film appearances in Sweden – the thriller Blodsbröder from 2005, with a lot of famous Swedish faces at the beginning of their careers, and 2007’s Daisy Diamond. The latter proved to be the perfect acting showcase in the casting process for Lisbeth Salander – the film remains as bleak as it gets and is still difficult and at times unbearable to watch. Enjoy the new additions.

AppleTV+ is still plugging “Constellation” and Noomi for Emmy consideration, so luckily for us, there’s more recent interviews. Yesterday, DP/30 uploaded a new conversation with Noomi in which she talks about the long shoot of the series, her early career and how her interest in roles have shifted over the last decade since her breakout with “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. The full interview can be watched in the video archive. Screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

Here is a preview of things to come for Reserved Magazine Issue 9. We have a full editorial starring the stunning Noomi Rapace the star of Apple TV+’s Constellation, in the desert as captured by Amanda Demme. For the digital feature we have implemented BTS footage as not to give it all away. A little teaser, super excited for this epic journey into summer 2024. There are places within this Emerald City where special people flock—those who have it, so they get it— places where things happen, behind closed doors, or gates, or hedges, places where photos, if taken, are never published. Places like the Chateau, where, naturally, Noomi Rapace and I recently lunched. Noomi strides into the Chateau’s courtyard, all grace and determination, not a minute later than our planned 12:15 meeting. In town with the rest of the brilliant cast promoting Constellation, the series now streaming on Apple TV+, Rapace effortlessly dons a neutral graffiti’d adorned trench and a monochrome hoodie ensemble capped with dark rounded frames obscuring kind eyes. Her top-knotted obsidian locks, striking bone structure and make-up free complexion give up the appearance of an off-duty-model day. For pre-order options and a behind-the-scenes video, please visit the Reserved Magazine website.

Last week, Noomi’s AppleTV+ series “Constellation” wrapped with its final episode. The sci-fi mystery show has slowly built up a fascinating but head-scratching mystery, with family dramas, cosmonaut conspiracies and dual realities. For a deep dive into all eight episodes – filled with spoilers – you can check out our comprehensive episode guide. New clips and screencaptures from a new making of have been added as well.

A new batch of articles and interviews from the “Constellation” press coverage has been added to the photo gallery, mostly from the British press and including Q&As with The Guardian and The Observer (many thanks to Alvaro for sending this in). And while we’re at it, I also found a couple of articles from the very sparse coverage for last year’s “Django”. A complete list of updates can be found below.

Noomi Rapace is the cover girl for DEK Magazine’s eighth issue, which is now available to order on their website: Rapace was already a great admirer of MacLaren’s work on episodes of Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and Game of Thrones, and Constellation unites the narrative depth of such complex TV with the spectacle of cinema. “It’s sort of like our medium now has just conquered another space: we have more time to tell a story. But I will say that Constellation really feels like eight hours of cinema; we had the muscles to really explore and make it as good as we wanted, so it felt like a big studio film rather than TV.” Combining elements of science fiction and conspiracy thriller, it tells the tale of returning astronaut Jo Ericsson, a part that Rapace immediately felt could have been written for her. It’s the kind of intelligent storytelling that she enjoys as a viewer too.

“There’s so much going on. And I love that because a lot of the things I read, or when I watch things, I just feel, ‘Do you think I’m stupid?’ The audience is not stupid. And I like it when I feel it’s something to figure out.” Her favourite films are those like Memento and Inception, with strong characters and intricate plots that demand multiple viewings, which reflect Rapace’s own perspective on life. “Life is science fiction; life is fucking weird. So many times I thought I knew what life was, and then I was like, ‘Wait, what? No, I don’t know shit.’ I feel the older I get, the more I feel I don’t know. I would say my life many times has felt like I’m living in a movie that is science fiction mixed with drama.”
