That One Audition with Alyshia Ochse

Sep 22, 2020

Today’s guest is the one and only Noomi Rapace. She’s an actress and a producer. A shatterer of limiting beliefs. She achieved international fame originating the role of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish adaptation of the Millennium Series: “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.” This woman digs into the mind, body, and soul of every character she plays. Just watch her portray septuplets in “What Happened to Monday.” It’s masterful. And from the beginning of her career in Sweden, she’s taken a unique approach to auditioning that might unravel some of your ideas about this industry.

Noomi’s worked with everyone from Guy Ritchie's in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” to Ridley Scott in “Prometheus,” to Tom Hardy in “Child 44,” to John Krasinski in “Jack Ryan.” She opens up about producing and starring in her latest film, “The Secrets We Keep,” and shares how much she enjoys peeling back the layers of truth in her own life and in the stories she tells. Her career is an example of the depths you can go when you master your fears, and the connections that unfold when you create the work you want to create.
