A different Hollywood female

Alicia Vikander has her own unique way of being sexy and dynamic at the same time.  The Swedish actress fell into the Hollywood “radar” in 2015 when she co-starred in the film the Danish Girl, a role for which she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Alicia was born on October 3rd 1988, and initially studied dance at the Royal Ballet School in Sweden, but due to injuries that required surgery on her leg and back she was forced to leave the stage.  She began her acting career in Swedish short films and on television, starring in the memorable T.V. drama Second Avenue from 2007-2008 and then debuted in a feature film Till det som är vackert in 2009, which gave her the Guldbagge Award for Best Actress.

After the great success of the movie Danish Girl, she had a role in the film Ex Machina and played the incarnation of the legendary Lara Croft in the film Tomb Raider.

Alicia belongs to a new generation of women in Hollywood, which are represented by the characters of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Okoye of Black Panther (Danai Gurira), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Shuri (Letitia Wright).  These women represent a type of heroine who can balance physical strength with emotional sensitivity.
