Alicia Vikander has a mantra. “When things are hard,” she begins, slowly, “I say, ‘Yeah, but it’s not tougher than ballet school.’” Alicia enrolled at the Royal Swedish Ballet School when she was 9 years old, and danced with companies until she was 19, which amounts to a childhood spent in permanent discipline.

“One thing you learn in a school like that, if it doesn’t break you, is that no one does for you.”

It’s a rather worldly lesson to have internalized as a child, but as preliminary training for Hollywood, you’d hazard the lesson was invaluable. Today, the 29-year-old Oscar winner still has the physical mannerisms of a dancer: she sits, back straight on her chair, legs crossed, occasionally grasping her feet and rocking from side to side. Her first English-speaking role was only “six or seven years ago”, and she speaks slowly and carefully, though it doesn’t seem like the uncertainty of the non-native speaker, but instead a deep-rooted thoughtfulness.

LOS ANGELES – Alicia Vikander had just wrapped her exhausting 100-day Tomb Raider shoot last June when she decided to catch the summer movie sensation Wonder Woman for rest and relaxation. Seeing Gal Gadot’s powerful Diana Prince at the center of the superhero world knocked Vikander out. Nearly a year later, Vikander is returning the favor, stepping into the action boots of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider (in theaters Friday). Angelina Jolie previously strapped on the iconic video-game heroine’s combat-ready footwear in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the 2003 sequel Lara Croft: Tomb Raider — The Cradle of Life.

“I was amazed, I watched a battle scene onscreen with only women and realized that it was so far away from everything I have been fed my entire life,” Vikander says. The visualization hit home, I’m a feminist, and aware, but I was like, ‘Wow,’ I hadn’t really even questioned that I only see men in these things. I felt thankful to them for bringing (us) this film.”

In the luxury apartment of a West End hotel, the Oscar-winning actor Alicia Vikander is not quite feeling herself. ‘This makes me feel very small and a bit overwhelmed,’ she says, nodding towards the spacious sitting room furnished with embroidered sofas and hand-painted armoires. ‘This is really not who I am.

Dressed in black leggings and an oversized navy cable-knit sweater, Vikander does look rather small. She opts to sit on a stiff dining chair, pulling it up close to the table. Her hair is pulled back into a ponytail, there is no make-up on her face and, at 29, she has the serious, youthful air of an international student.

People think of me as this art-house girl. But when I was a little girl in Sweden the films I loved were all those amazing action movies – Indiana Jones and The Mummy. The idea that I was being asked to do this movie…’ She pauses and shakes her head. ‘I am an actress from a tiny country where even just to think you can be in a movie seems like a dream, and then to be in a movie that you dreamt about as a kid just seemed completely surreal. So if I was going to do this, I was going to do it the very, very best I could. I was going to give everything. Everyone remembers Angelina Jolie [who played the character in the noughties], but I wanted to make Lara Croft my own. CONTINUE READING
