Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game Of Shadows last night Premier – Noomi glittered

Posted on: December 7, 2011

Glittering in gold: Noomi looked stunning in a halterneck gown as she posed for photographers at the premiere

She chopped off all her hair and got multiple piercings to play the role of hacker Lisbeth Salander in the highly-anticipated American movie version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

But as Noomi Rapace attended the premiere of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows last night, the 31-year-old actress looked worlds away from her gritty appearance in the upcoming film.

With her hair teased into a high ponytail, Noomi glittered in a stunning gold gown as she posed for photographers at the Westwood Regency Village for the event.

And there was no sign of the nose and ear piercings, or the thick black eyeliner Salander has become famous for through Stieg Larsson’s novel.

Noomi spoke recently about how she changed her appearance to play Lisbeth, adding that she didn’t take on the movie lightly.

She said: ‘When I stepped into Lisbeth Salander, and when she grew in me, I was prepping for seven months, I changed my body a lot and I was training a lot, and I took the license for a motorcycle, and I did all those piercings and cut my hair.

All star cast: Director Guy Ritchie, actors Rachel McAdams, Jared Harris, Noomi Rapace, and Robert Downey Jr.

Last night, Noomi was joined by her Sherlock Holmes co-stars including Robert Downey Jr. and Rachel McAdams at the premiere, along with director Guy Ritchie and his girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley.

Noomi stars as gypsy Sim in the movie sequel, and said recently that she was welcomed to the franchise by Downey Jr. and fellow lead actor Jude Law.

She said: ‘It’s kind of being the new girl in the class or something. You can feel that the whole team and everybody has something really good, so it’s like stepping into something where somebody else has made the hard work so you can just fly, in a way. So it’s been a great, fantastic journey.’
