Noomi Rapace - Mermaid

Noomi Rapace by Olaf Blecker for The New York Times Magazine (2012)
"We didn’t know till the day of the shoot, however, that she [Noomi] has the lung capacity of a mermaid. She was able to stay submerged for what seemed like minutes at a time, and she managed to hold her breath in such a way that her face didn’t become distorted; her eyes were open, but did not bulge; her lips were slightly parted, but expelled no bubbles. She smiled, she laughed, she looked angry, contemplative, melancholy. Frankly, it was downright eerie." -New York Times Magazine
