My View of Alicia Vikander:

I have watched her first in Seventh Son after that in The Man from U.N.C.L.E, Ex Machina and I really loved her acting skills as well as her beauty and in my view she has the potential to become a big star in the near future. 2015 is surely going to be a big year for her professionally. You can simply say that Miss Vikander is a fine actor with a lot to deliver to us. Seeing her acting in Pure, Hotell, Ex Machina, Danish Girl and Anna Karenina one can easily fell in love with her. She is an innocent looking intense performing actress who always seems to be in command of her role.

      You are write Ulkar, I too just got to know her few months back when I saw “The Seventh Son”. But, in that movie itself I got to understand this girl has some serious talent. I would suggest you to watch Ex-Machina.

        I`ve seen Ex-Machina. It`s wonderful film. I kind of believe that if Alicia VIkander would have born in Silent Movie Era, she would certainly be a big star. Have you noticed how her face talks? This is truly remarkable. See her in Testament of Youth! I even interviewed James Kent, the director of that film. You must read what he had to say about Alicia.

          Sure, I will see that interview as well as move too. Yes, I agree her face is really very expressive, of course, in addition to her beautiful looks.
