Noomi Rapace, starring in the new Netflix movie ”Bright” which premieres December 22, believes that women's responsibility is missing in the debate surrounding #metoo: “Many women have played the game and climbed the ladder. They have used the game to their advantage."


LA, 03.00am. Noomi Rapace wakes up and can’t go back to sleep. She reaches for her notebook and pen to write down the thoughts that have taken hold of her mind. “Creative notes”, mainly. The jet lag does not bother her.

– Being in a creative flow inspires me. I don’t see it as a burden. I have the best job in the world, she declares over the phone, 20 hours later.

Noomi Rapace: ”This whole Oscar thing... I was very surprised when I understood how it works. It's not that the best film wins. There needs to be a big production company with a lot of money and influential people behind it.”
