Noomi Rapace shared some fresh details on her character "Elizabeth Shaw" at the Jameson Empire Awards. The actress told Empire how Shaw differed from her character "Lizbeth Salander" in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, "She’s not that damaged which for me is kind of nice." Rapace now a week into filming Prometheus at Pinewood stated further. "She has an inner strength that is quite beautiful and a pureness too. She’s very obsessed with finding out something." When asked if Prometheus will mirror the psychological horror of the original Alien? She replied “Yes, kind of, What I like so much about the Alien movies is that they’re out there in space and it’s weird, but [the characters] are very human and very down to earth. That’s what [Ridley] created and that’s who he is, and I think we’ll probably see that again on this one."
