She is 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. She is also known for playing Madame Simza Heron in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and the lead role of Elizabeth Shaw in the Ridley Scott science fiction film Prometheus. As of March, 2012, she is shooting Brian De Palma's thriller Passion in Berlin. Rapace was born in Hudiksvall. Her mother, Nina Norén (b. 1954), is a Swedish actress, and her father, Rogelio Durán (1953–2006), was a Spanish cantaor (Flamenco singer) from Badajoz. 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." Rapace's sister, Særún Norén, is a photographer. Rapace has said that she saw her father only occasionally before his death. At the age of five, she moved from Sweden to Flúðir, Iceland, with her mother and stepfather.
