Ridley Scott's Prometheus is currently in production, working towards a July 8, 2012 release date. Despite the release of a new synopsis last week, there is still much we don't know about this sci-fi tale. Actress Noomi Rapace revealed new details about her character, Elizabeth Shaw, recently, which indicates she goes through quite a transformation. Take a look at what she had to say below.

"I play Elizabeth Shaw, researcher and archaeologist. She's British but was raised in Africa because her father was a missionary. From him she learned to believe in God, and she has a strong inner self. She is the most complete person I have ever played. She has an inner light. She's very stubborn and determined. She lost her parents when she was a child, so she's been alone from a young age. But she's very intelligent. I know that when one has to survive alone from an early age, one becomes strong. But also fragile, because the hurt child within her hasn't been able to evolve in a natural way. You get easily hurt emotionally. She's full of hope, a dreamer, a little naive. Halfway through the movie a lot of things happen and she turns into a fighter. Another part of her comes to life."

The actress also revealed that Sigourney Weaver's performance in Ridley Scott's 1979 classic Alien was a major inspiration for her performance.

"There is a relationship there. I saw Alien as a teenager and was blown away. Can it really be like that? She was the first female star. With Alien and Thelma & Louise, Ridley has created a lot of hope and dreams."
