Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander
(interview in "The New York Times", February 9, 2016) During production of The Danish Girl (2015), the filmmakers were obsessed with me not looking Scandinavian and I was like, "I'm the only Scandinavian in the whole film". They paled my skin, to make me lighter. People say that I'm tanned, but that's my natural color.

  • Raised in Göteborg, Sweden.
  • Before she mastered the Danish language she had to use in A Royal Affair (2012), she was able to practice all of her lines, since they had been recorded on her Iphone by one of her mother's friend.
  • Was chosen for her part in A Royal Affair (2012), following a long casting process where the casting directors were unable to find a fitting actress for the role of Queen Caroline Mathilde. In fact, the search gave so few results that the production almost was stalled. However, when they discovered Vikander she didn't speak the language that she was required to, but she was still considered to be perfect for the part. The crew made her go through an intense language lessons throughout two months. She succeed in the mastering the language and because of that, the production was back on track.
