Noomi Rapace has revealed that her father abandoning her as a young girl deeply affected her.
The Prometheus actress says that her father walked out on her family when she was born. She didn't meet him until she was a teenager, shortly before he passed away from cancer.
She told The Daily Telegraph: 'It was like a bleeding wound in my heart, my whole childhood. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to sit down with him and talk to him before he died, and I felt like I made peace.''
Rapace was also able to meet family members on her father's side, and said that she is very close with her half-sisters and brothers.
''I look pretty much like my father," she added. "And now my half-brother, my father's son, is my nanny. He's with me in Berlin.''
The Swedish actress currently stars in Ridley Scott'sPrometheus, which is out in the UK now and comes out June 8 in the US.
