Noomi Rapace ( /ˈnoʊmi rəˈpɑːs/ noh-mee rə-pahss;[1] née Norén; born December 28, 1979) is a Swedish actress.[2] She is best known for her portrayal of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish/Danish film adaptations of the Millennium series: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.[3] She is also known for playing Madame Simza in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and the lead role of Dr. Elizabeth Shaw in the Ridley Scott science fiction film Prometheus.

Early life

Rapace was born in Hudiksvall, Sweden. Her mother, Nina Norén (born Kristina Norén; 1954) is a Swedish actress, and her father, Rogelio Durán (1953–2006), was a Spanish Flamenco singer from Badajoz.[4] She has said that her father may have been of part Roma descent, and though she is “not sure if it is true,” she has “always been interested in the culture.”[5][6] Rapace’s sister, Særún Norén, is a photographer.[3] Rapace has said she saw her father only occasionally before his death. At the age of five, she moved from her native Sweden to Flúðir, Iceland with her mother and stepfather. Two years later, she made her film debut in a minor role in In the Shadow of the Raven.
