Career[edit | edit source]

At the age of seven, Rapace was given a non-speaking part in the film, In the Shadow of the Raven by Hrafn Gunnlaugsson. This experience made her decide to be an actress.

She left home at age 15 and enrolled in a Stockholm theater school. In 1996, she made her TV debut playing the part of Lucinda Gonzales in the TV series Tre kronor. From 1998 to 1999, Rapace studied at Skara Skolscen. She has been engaged at Theater Plaza 2000–2001, Orionteatern 2001, Teater Galeasen 2002, Stockholms stadsteater in 2003 as well as at the Royal Dramatic Theatre. She drew acclaim for her award-winning portrayal of a troubled teen mother in the 2007 Danish film Daisy Diamond.

In 2011 she starred in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, her first English-speaking role, where she played Gypsy fortune teller, Sim.

Ridley Scott cast her in the lead role as Elizabeth Shaw in the Alien prequel, Prometheus.
