Around four years ago, Alicia Vikander was heading from England back to her native Sweden. The actress, who is normally driven by a joyful determination, was a little sad: She had spent the last of her savings on a plane ticket to London so she could meet with casting directors about a part in Snow White and the Huntsman, a big-budget reinvention of the classic fairy tale. “I was completely on my own,” she told me on a very chilly day in early February in London, where she now resides. We were having hot beverages at a small gourmet shop near her apartment, and Vikander, who is petite and very slim, with wide brown eyes, was swathed in a caramel-colored overcoat and a long pale blue wool muffler. She projected an air of self-sufficiency: polite but not warm, and certainly not vulnerable.
Vikander, 26, has been acting since she was 7, including a three-year run in the Swedish musical Kristina From Duvemala, written by the creators of Mamma Mia! When she was 15, she left her hometown of Göteborg, where she was living with her mother (her parents separated when she was an infant) to study at the prestigious Royal Swedish Ballet School in Stockholm. When she realized that she wasn’t going to make it as a professional dancer, she started thinking about trying out for English-speaking acting roles. She worked on her English—she now speaks it beautifully, with a slight British accent—and made tapes of herself playing different characters, hoping to land a part in an American movie. The tapes were sent to casting directors in the U.K., but neither Vikander nor her Swedish agent received any responses. “I never even heard ‘No thank you,’?” Vikander said, taking a sip of her coffee. “So I decided I had to get myself to London.”
Alicia is in Paris right now for the Paris Fashion Week and she attended the Louis Vuitton show on March 11, 2015.

The first trailer for ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ is finally here!
It’s 1963, some of the chilliest days of the Cold War, and an international criminal organization with ties to ex-Nazis has sprung up. Rumor has it they have an atom bomb. Welcome to The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the latest ’60s TV-to-screen adaptation. Guy Ritchie directs the pic, which stars Henry Cavill as CIA agent Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as KGB operative Illya Kuryakin. The sworn enemies are forced to table their hostilities and work together to infiltrate the nasties, who are intent on upsetting the fragile geopolitical balance. Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris and Hugh Grant co-star in the actioner scripted by Ritchie and Lionel Wigram from a story they wrote with Jeff Kleeman and David Campbell Wilson. Warner Bros opens it August 14.
Added two new production stills from ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E’ featuring Alicia as Gaby Teller, the daughter of a mysteriously vanished German scientist who helps Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer’s characters infiltrate the international criminal organization.
