Noomi Rapace: From Girl with a Dragon Tattoo to Dead Man Down

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Noomi Rapace has had quite a run in Hollywood of late. Rapace has come a long way from being the "original" Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. From her recent turn in Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows to her latest role in Dead Man Down that reunites the actress with her Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director, the Swedish star is making a name for herself in Tinseltown.

Movie Fanatic caught up with Rapace for an exclusive video interview to talk about the revenge thriller and she isn't shy about her feelings towards her co-star, Colin Farrell. "He's adorable," Rapace admitted.

As teased in the Dead Man Down trailer, Rapace and Farrell play two people who are obsessed with revenge after they were violently changed forever. "I love when I read a script and I can't predict where it's going," Rapace said about the thrill ride.

In Dead Man Down, she has a special bond with Farrell. The actress also treasured their characters' parallel revenge tales.

"It feels like those two characters are on two different revenge roads," Rapace said. "And when they get to know each other, the way the relationship develops is unexpected for them as well. And then they have to reconsider the decision they made earlier. I like that."
