On behalf of the site and the fans, we would like to wish Alicia Vikander a very happy 28th birthday. We hope she’s spending a most wonderful day with her loved ones – and we all look forward to seeing her projects in the upcoming year. Happy Birthday Alicia!
Our girl continues to be a desired cover girl for magazines, and is currently covering the Winter 2016 issue of Porter Magazine! She was photographed by Ryan McGinley, in a photoshoot styled very differently from what she has done in the past. The spread is getting both praise and critique by fashion lovers, and while it might not be my personal favorite Alicia cover either, she looks so amazing in the photoshoot! It’s a must check-out; enjoy the pretty!
We hope to have hiqh quality scans with time, but for now, make sure to purchase your very own copy of the magazine! You can buy it online at this page.
Alicia to Porter:
On her relationship with Michael Fassbender and working with him on The Light Between Oceans: “We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re a couple… He’s extremely hardworking. He was like, ‘Give me something new! I just need a new idea. I need to do it differently.’ I just thought that was cool. Because that was what I was trying to do, too. To push each other and come up with new ideas each time.”
On the Brexit vote: “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I am European. I grew up in a small country. Without it, I would not be where I am right now in my career – I wouldn’t have been able to live with my three girlfriends in London. As a foreigner, I probably wouldn’t have been cast in Anna Karenina if they’d had to pay for a working visa. I hope here in America that it opens people’s eyes that you can’t just let things happen. You need to get involved.”
On working with women: “I can count on my hands the scenes I’ve done with women.” [She recalls acting in a scene with Holliday Grainger for the upcoming Tulip Fever.] “At the end, I was like, ‘That was fun.’ And then I kind of looked up at her and we talked about it. ‘Something’s different. What is it?’ And I realized that I hadn’t had a proper two-page scene with another woman, just playing off each other.”
A bunch of new production stills and behind the scenes pics of Alicia as Isabel Sherbourne in ‘The Light Between Oceans‘ has been added to our gallery. Thank you to my friend Mouza for sending these our way!
Hello Alicia fans! Over the next few weeks, we will be adding a bunch of additional high quality photos of Alicia at public events to our gallery. I’ve started with 2012, and there have been more than 100 pretty new additions! Alicia was busy promoting ‘A Royal Affair’ and ‘Anna Karenina’ this year, and made appearances at events such as Berlin Film Festival, Hamptons International Film Festival and various film premieres. Almost all our folders have been updated with new additions, so make sure you start browsing the 2012 category for some younger Alicia treats!
The Swedish Cancer Society, an independent non-profit organization with the vision of finding cures for cancer, revealed earlier today their new ribbon, which changes every year. Alicia created this pink ribbon and shares her personal story in the cancer awareness campaign, which you can view in the video below. Along with the ribbon, four beautiful outtakes of a photoshoot for the campaign have been revealed, photographed by Erik Persson.
“For me, the pink ribbon is a symbol of solidarity which gives hope of overcoming the disease.”
“I was very honoured when the Swedish Cancer Society asked me to design this year’s pink ribbon. I’ve seen what cancer can do to the ones you love, and this is my way of contributing to the cause.”
Inquirer – LOS ANGELES—“You always wonder if you are going to have chemistry,” Alicia Vikander said about her leading men as she starts each new movie. The actress certainly wondered about Michael Fassbender when they began filming “The Light Between Oceans.”
Well, not only does the pair have good chemistry; they fell in love on the New Zealand set of director Derek Cianfrance’s adaptation of ML Stedman’s novel of the same name.
In the drama set after World War I, Alicia and Michael play a lighthouse keeper (Tom) and his wife (Isabel), who’s recovering from two miscarriages and one stillbirth. When a baby washes ashore in a lifeboat, they raise her as their own.
Rachel Weisz also stars in the movie that recently debuted in the Venice Film Festival. Alicia, 27, and Michael, 39, made a sweet couple on the red carpet at the film’s premiere in the festival on the Lido.
The Swedish actress looked lovely in a simple linen white dress in this talk in West Hollywood, California. She was filming Wim Wenders’ “Submergence” and was set to go on location in the Faroe Islands, an archipelago located between Norway and Iceland.
“I am thrilled to go to the Faroe Islands,” she said. “I have never been there, and Wim says it’s like Mars.”
Excerpts from our interview:
What was it like to work with Michael? Was there immediate chemistry between the two of you?
We had met in industry events, like the Toronto Film Festival and the Baftas. But the first time we really had a chat was when we started rehearsals in Wellington (New Zealand). You always wonder if you are going to have chemistry with your coactor, especially when making a film that is intimate and emotionally intense. Yes, it felt easy from the very beginning.
Do you remember the first time you watched Michael in the movies?
I was in this little indie theater back home in Stockholm, Sweden, where I saw both “Hunger” and “Fish Tank” many years ago. I thought he was one of the bravest actors I had seen. So, for me, to know that Derek Cianfrance and Michael were involved in this project made me really want to be a part of it.
As you can see, we have a new layout here at Alicia Vikander Online. Isn’t is beautiful? The stunning header was created by our friend Nicole, and the theme is done by Lora. We really love it – and we hope you will just as much.
I have closed some of our pages for now, as I will be working on expanding our site content. We’ll soon have more detailed information on Alicia and her career, as well as a few fun pages. Stay tuned for some big updates!
I have added a handful of high quality photoshoots and portraits of Alicia to our photo archive. Thank you to my friend Maria for sending these our way!
