Alicia Vikander talks about Tomb Raider
Swedish actor, dancer and producer Alicia Vikander is preparing herself for the world to see her as Lara Croft in the upcoming 2018 version of Tomb Raider. The Oscar winner seems to be very excited about the role, which was previously donned by Angelina Jolie. In a recent interview with ELLE, the actor opened up about what it takes to become Lara Croft in the action-packed franchise. The 28-year old actor has admitted that taking on a role that once belonged to someone like Angelina Jolie is not an easy task. Alicia said, “I thought I was going to have to explain it to my mom, and she was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah—Angelina did that!’ It proves that Jolie set a whole tone for such roles, so I knew we had to do something very different.” The opportunity to work in a highly commercial film like Tomb Raider has also changed Alicia’s life to some extent. She informed that preparing for the role meant empowerment for her and that, it required a whole new level of preparation. “I love big popcorn movies. I’ve never done action scenes on this level – not even close. It feels like I’m back to dancing – the training, the intensity. You need to be aware of your movement up in the wires and how your body works. I’ve never been able to lift my own weight, and the day when you have that capacity, it’s pretty empowering!” she told the fashion magazine. Alicia, who has donned a wide variety of roles in her career, believes that it is still hard to find new and challenging roles for female actors in films. “Complex roles such as that in Hotell are actually hawrd to find, which is sad,” she said.
