Noomi Rapace Talks Alien Spinoff

Actress Noomi Rapace has been talking to MTV News about the upcoming Alien spinoff; Prometheus.

Rapace, who starred in the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo talked to MTV about her character and admitted that there are some similarities between her and iconic Aliens protagonist Ripley…

“She’s definitely her own [character]. She’s a scientist and is very bright. She’s a believer. I think there are some similarities [to Ripley], but she’s very much her own. I don’t think people will compare her so much to Ripley once they see the movie.”

She then added that she feels honoured to be working with a director of Ridley Scott’s stature…

“It’s a great honour and I’m really excited. I’ve met him maybe seven or eight times and he’s so passionate. He really loves movies. He watches movies every night. He’s seen everything.

We had a long chat on the phone – he’s in LA now – about my character. I have many ideas and he has many ideas, and now we’re starting to search and try to find her.”
