As far as foreign actresses making the leap to American projects, Noomi Rapace, who made a splash worldwide in the Swedish "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (and its two subsequent films), has done quite well for herself. After introducing herself to domestic audiences with a supporting turn in Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Homes: Game of Shadows," she went on to a high profile turn last summer in Ridley Scott's "Alien" prequel/sequel/whatever "Prometheus," and will again be courting mainstream American super-stardom this weekend in "Dead Man Down," a surprisingly solid revenge movie from her "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" director Niels Arden Oplev. We talked to her about what drew her to "Dead Man Down," what it was like working with Isabelle Huppert, and the violent '90s movies inspired her performance.
