Spotlight Award: Noomi Rapace

Hollywood Award honoree

“Oh, how my life has changed after those three movies,” Noomi Rapace says.

The petite Swede transformed into a kick-butt heroine during her nine months’ filming of the adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s bestselling trilogy that began with “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and concludes with “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.”

As Lisbeth Salander, Rapace has become locally and internationally known. “I’ve done a lot of Swedish films but none like these. I don’t think there’s ever been a level like this for Swedish films before,” she notes.

Hollywood has come calling, and Rapace is now filming the “Sherlock Holmes” sequel in London.

Which character she plays, she cannot say. “But they have invited me to work with them on the script and to find her. … So actually, this really big movie sometimes feels like a small independent family, searching to do something great together.”
