Noomi Rapace has revealed that her character in Prometheus is "the heart" of the film.
The Swedish actress stars in Ridley Scott's upcoming film, deemed as the prequel to Alien, alongside Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender.
"I feel like my character is the heart in the movie. You follow her, and she changes," she told Collider.
"In the beginning, she's a believer. She believes in God and she has a very strong faith. She is a scientist and an archaeologist. She's on this mission, and she's full of hope. In the middle of the movie, things happen and she changes into more of a warrior. And in the end, she's such a survivor."
Noomi, who next proves her mettle alongside Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law in Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, admitted she got caught up in the Prometheus experience.
"It was really a quite intense and dramatic journey for me to go through, and to do it with Ridley and the other actors," she continued.
"But, when we were finished and we wrapped in Iceland, I remember that it was almost like I came back to Earth because I'd been on this spaceship and I'd been out on this weird planet. It's always quite fascinating, when I look back at things and I realise how deep into it I actually was. It's almost like I'm occupied by something."
