Noomi Rapace is the star of the new Ridley Scott film "Prometheus." Casting her as the lead character Elizabeth Shaw...
Rapace said that to make the character of Shaw believable, she felt the need to reconnect to her spiritual upbringing in Iceland, to a time when her belief system felt more certain. “I felt I had to face myself and find her in me,” Rapace said. “There’s a line in the movie, ‘That’s what I choose to believe,’ and I think that’s a key sentence in her life. She lost her dad when she was 9, her mother when she was a baby, and she’s been on her own. It’s like you have a choice: to either be destructive or to say everything happens for a reason and I just have to find the reason. She is driven by passion and an almost naive obsession to find out who made us.”
'And now that she's got her own measure of fame, Tina Fey says she's more and more conscious of what messages her daughters...are getting about being famous and making their own way. "There's this Nickelodeon show where the boy band sings, 'I wanna be famous!' Well, why? Everyone just wants to be famous. The idea [to get across is] that being famous in itself is not to be valued; that's not important," she says.'
'If they wanted to become actors, says Fey, "I'd try and spare them from the life of an actor, where you only get work if someone picks you. You want to be someone who makes your own stuff. If you make your own thing, you can be doing it at a community theater or on Broadway. No one can really stop you. It's a better, more cool life." ///
