Roomi Rapace

Taking over the Swedish movie screens, is actress Noomi Rapace. Starring in the Millennium Trilogy, based on the books by Stieg Larsson, Rapace has made quite a name for herself in the upcoming film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

She’s the daughter of a Spanish Flamenco Dancer and had her first movie role at the age of seven. Although her creativity clearly didn’t stop there as she literally made up her own name when she wed her husband, Ola! They both took on the last name Rapace, which means “bird of prey” in French.

When auditioning for the role of Lisabeth Sander in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, she had to lose a tonne of weight to convince the director to hire her. She also had to learn kick boxing and how to ride a motorcycle, as well as died her hair black and get an eyebrow piercing. Talk about dedication!

She should definitely look forward to and exciting career, although she says she doesn’t want to head to Hollywood quite yet!
