1. Close (2019)

Just like Ava, the Netflix original film Close is lead by another brilliant action star who has proven several times she is a force to be reckoned with on-screen. Noomi Rapace who got her claim to fame in the original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy as Lisbeth Salander and continued to rise the ranks with spectacular runs in Prometheus and the Netflix sci-fi original film Whatever Happened to Monday.

Rapace plays Sam Carlson; a female bodyguard hired to protect an heiress from assassins.
