IGN – Alicia Vikander ushers a new generation into the Bourne franchise in the upcoming flick Jason Bourne.

Marking a continuation from the original Bourne trilogy, the Matt Damon-starring, Paul Greengrass-directed movie tackles modern issues like privacy on the Internet. Vikander’s Heather Lee is a CIA agent who is part of the new generation that’s emerged since The Bourne Identity hit theaters in 2002. As Damon’s Jason Bourne is engaging in epic car chases and running past obstacles, her hacker character is combating him at every turn from behind a computer screen.

Taking on a role in Jason Bourne was more than just a smart career move for Vikander, who won raves for her role in Ex Machina and an Oscar for her part in The Danish Girl; it was a fangirl’s dream come true. Read our interview with the 27-year-old to hear her discuss why she always felt herself drawn to the Bourne franchise, what appealed to her about playing Heather and whether she’ll be back for future films in the series.

IGN: What intrigued you about the character of Heather Lee in your decision to come on board Jason Bourne?
Alicia Vikander: I’d seen the films several time, and I was just so excited when I found out Paul and Matt were teaming up again and making a new one. I remember I met Paul, and sometimes in those meetings you start chatting a bit and talking about the film. Probably the first thing I said was, “I’m a big fan. I’m so happy you’re making a new one.” [laughs] I had read the script at that point and I was very intrigued by the character of Heather Lee, mostly because she’s a symbol of what has changed since 2007, since the last Bourne film, in our world with technology and tech. She’s part of a new generation of young people who kind of hold the power nowadays regarding how we live our lives through technology and run companies and governments and such. To get a chance to play someone like her I found really interesting.

IGN: It’s interesting how she’s very much a match for Bourne even though she’s a very different character with a very different skill set. Did you view her more as a hero or a villain in this story?
Vikander: It’s part of the kind of franchise of trying to find out the identity of a person. That’s kind of what you do with Heather. I remember I read it the first time, the script, and I kind of wanted to get under her skin and figure out. I love the fact that in this film Riz Ahmed’s character, who’s this head of this social media company, and she kind of have the same background. They are both prodigy hackers, but she’s of course chosen to use her abilities and go into working at the CIA. But throughout this film it seems like it’s almost not only that you’re trying to figure out if she’s on one side of the conflict in this film. It almost feels like she has a higher kind of personal agenda throughout the film. And I think to play that ambiguity was a lot of fun, but of course Paul and I had discussions of what we were playing.

E!ONLINE – You can’t fake this chemistry!

Real-life couple Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander play married in their tear-jerking new film, The Light Between Oceans, in theaters on Sept. 2, 2016. In an interview with ET’s Carly Steel, the duo recall the first time they actually met before working together on the film.

“We had met at Toronto Film Festival and just on the dance floor,” Vikander revealed, with Fassbender chiming in: “I thought [I was a good dancer] until she started dancing and then I felt like I had two left feet.”

The duo say they first “properly” met during rehearsals for the film in 2014, but their chemistry, Fassbender says, “was sort of there from the beginning.”

While the tone may have been serious in front of the cameras, Vikander and Fassbender say they kept their party moves going behind the scenes.

“There was a load of dancing in the mornings, actually,” Vikander reveals, Fassbender adding: “Because it was cold.”

(Aww, they’re finishing each other’s sentences!)

Apparently, the cast would gather in a wood shed on set, where the makeup team was set up — with BB guns. “We had the headshots of everybody on the wall and we were shooting them,” Fassbender exclaims, prompting a laugh from Vikander. “And we had a lot of good music dancing in the morning.”

But once the cameras were rolling, it was all business for these lovebirds. In fact, Fassbender couldn’t help gushing over his girlfriend’s star power in our interview.

“She’s a very fierce performer and very brave,” he says. “It’s impressive to see.”

All that bravery scored Vikander an Academy Award earlier this year for her role in The Danish Girl. Re-live the sweet moment she won — and planted a big smooch on Fassbender.

DAILY TELEGRAPH“I had beginner’s luck,” smiles Alicia Vikander.

She’s talking about a night out with Matt Damon in Las Vegas, a town where luck can give — and luck can take away.

“Buy the ticket, take the ride,” preached Sin City’s glorifier, Hunter S.Thompson, and Vikander, like everyone else, did — albeit on the studio’s dime. “We get per diems [daily payments from the production company] and it felt like Monopoly money. So I put $100 down and then I was like, ‘Oh sh*t.’ But I won two nights out of four. I should have stopped, of course.”

How much did you win?

“I won 22 times my money,” she laughs. But it was pure luck and no intelligence, really.” The Vikander I meet on a crisp, bright winter’s day in Sydney is no beginner. She is a slight, smiling woman curled cosily into a sofa — a striking contrast to the stern-faced, sharp-edged CIA operative she plays in Jason Bourne, the latest instalment of the Matt Damon juggernaut.

Casual in charcoal Acne Studios jeans and a grey Rag & Bone knit, Vikander, 27, looks relaxed, nursing a cup of lemon and ginger tea and kicking off her shoes as she snuggles cross-legged into the corner of the couch. Perhaps it’s a Scandinavian thing — although she’s Swedish, she’s perfected the Danish art of hygge, that untranslatable word meaning warmth, cosiness and simplicity. The first thing she does is compliment my very low-tech notebook and pen: “Most people bring all these iPads and phones and I don’t know what.”

Ironically, however, it’s among such an array of technology that her latest character is most at home. In Jason Bourne, Vikander is steely and driven as Heather Lee, the computer hacker turned head of the CIA’s Cyber Ops department who’s determined to finally flush out Jason Bourne. Before I can suggest that a film Vikander herself describes as a “popcorn movie” seems a surprising move for a “serious” actor, she swiftly brings up its credentials as social commentary.
