In her interview, Vikander -- who won an Oscar for her performance in 'The Danish Girl -- opens up about her relationship with Michael Fassbender. Acting was not her first love. Born in Sweden, Alicia trained as a ballerina in Stockholm before being rejected by a theatre school. It was only then that Alicia pursued acting.
The actor, who received acclaimed applause for her roles in 'Testament Of Youth' and 'Ex Machina', will next appear in drama film 'Tulip Fever'. Part of her expanding high stakes reputation is being cast as Lara Croft in the new 'Tomb Raider' movie due out in 2018.
