Noomi Rapace - Noomi Rapace 'Amazed' By Law And Downey Stunts

Noomi Rapace was "amazed" Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law do their own stunts.

The Swedish actress stared alongside the Hollywood hunks in 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows', and she was surprised at how into the fight scenes the pair were.

She said: "What was amazing with those two guys is that they do their own stunts. They did almost everything. It's quite common that, you know, they have a stunt guy coming in and doing all the fantastic things and then they do close-ups, so everybody thinks they do everything.

"But these two they did everything - almost. Sometimes the insurance company won't let you! But that was amazing, honestly. You guys fight good!"

Noomi also enjoyed taking part in the action sequences in the European-set film - which was directed by Guy Ritchie - although she stopped training so she would look more feminine in the role of Gyspsy Simza.

She added to BANG Showbiz: "I've done fight scenes and I like it, I think they are a lot of fun. But on this one it felt like, I stopped training. I wanted to become more feminine. It's a period piece and you don't want to walk out like you have been to the gym. I didn't do anything."
