Alicia Vikander is arguably one of Hollywood’s greatest rising stars right now.
While Alicia Vikander has recently wrapped roles in the transgender drama, The Danish Girl, and sci-fi movie Ex Machina, she still has a bright immediate future to look forward to.
Alicia Vikander has already been slated for roles in The Light Between Oceans alongside fellow young Hollywood “It” person Michael Fassbender and a new Jason Bourne movie with Matt Damon.
A Bourne movie. I mean, nothing says, “I’ve made it,” like a Bourne movie.
Alicia Vikander, meanwhile, has just been nominated for TWO golden globes.
Huge congratulations to Alicia for getting two Golden Globe nominations for her work in #TheDanishGirl and #ExMachina! Best performance by an actress in a motion picture – Drama – Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl. Best performance by an actress in a supporting role in any motion picture – Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina. #AliciaVikander #GoldenGlobes
Right after Alicia Vikander found out about her double nomination, she said, “I heard the news that I’d been nominated and I freaked out.”
She added, “And then a little while later I heard the news again and I couldn’t even freak out. I was too overwhelmed. I just didn’t know what to do. I just got off the phone with my parents. It’s crazy, really.”
It is crazy! Alicia Viklander admitted that Ex Machina was a long shot when it first began.
She said, “When we got American distribution, that was a huge thing. I remember how we celebrated. I’m so proud for the film. We were at the British Independent Film Awards last week and Alex (screenwriter Alex Garland of 28 Days Later fame) won for directing and writing. I was in the back waving my arms like crazy.”
What an amazing ride and bright future for Alicia Vikander! What was your favorite out of Ex Machina and The Danish Girl?
