ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Three years ago, Swedish actress Alicia Vikander attended the Golden Globe Awards to support a Danish film she starred in called A Royal Affair, which had been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. “I was walking around inside there on tiptoes,” Vikander says. “It was beyond my wildest dreams. Just to get a peek behind the curtain was a memory for life. It was something I could tell my grandkids.”
But Vikander’s future grandchildren will be hearing a lot more than that. This morning, Vikander become one of the rare performers to be nominated for two Golden Globes in the same year. She’s competing in the Supporting Actress category for her role as Ava, a humanoid robot in the sci-fi sleeper hit Ex Machina. And she’s in the Lead Actress (Drama) lineup for The Danish Girl, in which she plays Gerda, the supportive wife of transgender pioneer Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne).
Vikander had just finished a press roundtable in Berlin when she heard the news. To say that she was stunned would be an understatement. On the phone, her voice is still trembling. “I heard the news that I’d been nominated and I freaked out,” she says. “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.”
The actress is most appreciative to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, hosts of the Golden Globes, for honoring two completely different genres of films. She’s already won the Los Angeles Film Critics Award for her performance in Ex Machina (directed by 28 Days Later screenwriter Alex Garland), but Vikander understands that small science-fiction films are not always the easiest sell. “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 won for directing and writing. I was in the back waving my arms like crazy.”

VARIETY – Hollywood’s red-hot star Alicia Vikander is in advanced negotiations to topline Wim Wenders’ romantic thriller “Submergence” opposite James McAvoy.
The film is based on J.M. Ledgard’s eponymous novel which ranked second in New York Magazine’s list of the 10 Best Books of 2013.
Penned by Erin Dignam (“The Last Face”), “Submergence” centers on two lovers, immersed in life-or-death situations and separated by thousands of miles, who find solace in memories of their intense romance the previous Christmas after a chance encounter on a beach on the Atlantic coast. One is enduring captivity by jihadist fighters in Somalia while the other is exploring the greatest depths of the ocean floor from her submersible.
The Swedish-born Vikander currently stars opposite Eddie Redmayne in Tom Hooper’s “The Danish Girl” which had a robust bow in the U.S., grossing $185,000 over Thanksgiving weekend, and has earned solid awards buzz since opening at the Venice Film Festival.
The 27-year old Vikander, who has been making some wise career choices, earned critical acclaim with the foreign-language Oscar nominee “A Royal Affair” as well as Lisa Langseth’s “Hotell,” before breaking through to international audiences with “Ex Machina.” She’s also starred in James Kent’s “Testament of Youth” and Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” Her slate of upcoming projects includes the untitled “Bourne” sequel with Matt Damon.
Cameron Lamb is producing “Submergence” through Lila 9th Productions, while Paris-based Backup Media is financing. The French company’s credits include the Oscar-winning “Still Alice,” which it also financed.
“Submergence” will start shooting in March in Europe and Africa.
UTA Independent Film Group packaged “Submergence” and will be representing the U.S. sale.
Wenders’ directing credits include “Paris, Texas,” “The State of Things,” “Wings of Desire,” “Buena Vista Social Club,” “Pina” and “Salt of the Earth.”
Wikander is repped by UTA, Tavistock Wood Management and Laura Munsterhjelm in Sweden.
