Alicia Amanda Vikander (born 3 October 1988) is a Swedish actor.

She earned international fame for her work in The Fifth Estate, Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Danish Girl.

She's been married to Michael Fassbender since 2017.


Vikander and her work provide examples of:

  • Ambiguously Brown: Vikander has dark hair and olive skin, and says that during The Danish Girl, people had a hard time believing she was actually Swedish.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: She put on a good bit of muscle for Tomb Raider.
  • Fake Nationality: She plays a Brit in Testament of Youth, A Royal Affair (although in the latter she speaks Danish for most of it) and Tomb Raider, a Dane in The Danish Girl, a German in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and an American in Jason Bourne.
  • Hollywood Hype Machine: After a very successful breakout year, Vikander was built up a major rising star, but has not yet replicated a similar level of success, though there's certainly time for this trope to be proven wrong.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She has a propensity for getting naked on film.

  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Her Swedish accent slips out frequently as she plays American Heather Lee in Jason Bourne.
  • Reclusive Artist: She’s one of the few prominent millennial actors to have no official social media accounts. She had a verified Instagram account for a month before deciding she didn’t like it and deleted it.
  • Romance on the Set: With Michael Fassbender. They met and fell in love on the set of The Light Between Oceans, and they've since gotten married.
  • What Could Have Been: She screen-tested for the role of Selina Kyle in The Batman before the casting of Zoë Kravitz.
