Continuing the internet marketing campaign for the highly-anticipated Prometheus, Ridley Scott and Fox have released a new video clip that introduces audiences more thoroughly to Noomi Rapace's character, Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, the archaeologist whose insistence helps propel the story forward.
Rapace, who first became famous for starring in the three original Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo films, worked to master a British accent for the role, which she shows off in her delicate yet unbowed video appeal. The shoot, which spanned three continents, was a physical challenge for the cast, and left Rapace with some inconvenient injuries.
“I was hanging in a harness and thrown around," Rapace told The Hollywood Reporter. "There were so many cuts and bruises, I don’t even remember them. When I finished, my knees were filled with liquid, and I had some nasty thing hanging from my elbow.”
