Noomi Rapace has in a recent interview revealed that Ridley Scott's Prometheus is connected to Alien. MTV quizzed the Swedish actress on "the definitive "Alien" connection" to which she replied "Yeah" Michael Fassbender also revealed last month that Prometheus shares "a definite connecting vein" with the previous films. Rapace further opened up on her character and gave a little info on her role and the obvious comparison to Sigourney Weaver's 'Ripley' in Alien. Hit the jump for the details.
Rapace on playing Elizabeth Shaw:
"She's a scientist and she's very bright and she's a believer. They have some similarities, but she's very much her own. I don't think people will compare [her] so much to Ripley when they see her. Ripley was a hero for me."
On the Shoot.
"I'm jumping into that straight off of ['Sherlock Holmes 2']. My character's name is Elizabeth Shaw, and I'll step into her shoes in March and be her for six months or something. It's quite a long shoot. It's unbelievable."
On Ridley Scott
"It's a great honor and I'm really excited. I've met him maybe seven or eight times and he's so passionate. He really loves movies. He watches movies every night. He's seen everything. We had a long chat on the phone, he's in LA now, about my character. I have many ideas and he has many ideas, and now we're starting to search and try to find her."
