PEOPLE – After multiple buzz worthy roles in major films – including her Oscar win for The Danish Girl, the Swedish star, 27, is one of the most in-demand talents in Hollywood.
“We were lucky to get her,” Matt Damon tells PEOPLE of getting Vikander to sign on for a role in Jason Bourne. “Everyone in Hollywood is trying to get Alicia in their movie right now.”
“I just think of these once-in-a-generation actresses who kind of explode onto the scene and what strikes me about her is I can’t see where her limits are,” he says. “There’s been six or seven [recent] performances and they’re all really different and they’re all going in different places and I don’t see the boundaries yet. I’m really excited to see what she does next.”
Damon adds: “You only get better at this job. She’s going to keep working with great people because great people all want to work with her,” he says. “In my experience, I knew a lot when I was 27 but the next 18 years were, it was nothing but fun because I was doing what I loved to do and kind of by osmosis you get better at it because of the people you’re around and working with. I don’t know where she’s going to go but I’m excited to see it.”
Is there anything we should know about Vikander that we don’t already?
“If I knew something that people don’t know, then they shouldn’t hear it from me,” Damon says with a laugh.
