Early Life

Alicia Amanda Vikander was born on October 3, 1988, in Gothenburg, Sweden, to physician Svante Vikander and stage actress Maria Fahl (1951–2022). Her parents hail from separate little towns in Sweden's north and south. Vikander's parents split up when she was two months old, and her mother reared her mostly. On her father's side, she is one of five half-siblins. Being raised by her mother as an only child and spending every other week at her father's house in the middle of a huge family gave Vikander the best of both worlds. She has a quarter Finnish ancestry because her maternal great-aunt fled to Sweden during World War II from Finland.
At the age of seven, Vikander began her acting career by starring in a production of Kristina frn Duvemla at The Göteborg Opera. The play was written by ABBA members Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, and Vikander played the lead role for three and a half years. She made appearances in major opera musicals, including The Sound of Music and Les Misérables. She took part in Smstjärnorna, a TV4 children's singing competition, in 1997 and sang the Helen Sjöholms song "Du mste finnas." The judges gave her a win for her episode and praised her stage presence.
From the age of nine, Vikander studied ballet at the Svenska Balettskolan i Göteborg (1998-2004). At the age of 15, Vikander relocated from Gothenburg to Stockholm to attend the ballet's upper school while living alone. She attended the American Academy of Ballet in New York for training one summer.
She almost dropped out of school at age 16 to devote herself totally to the television series she co-created with director Tomas Alfredson, realizing her love for acting. Injuries forced her to give up her dance career in her late teens. She failed two times at the theater school audition. Vikander was once accepted into law school, but she chose to pursue her aspirations of being an actor instead.

Early parts in short films and television series in her home Sweden marked the start of Vikander's career. Later, from 2008 to 2010, she made an appearance in the Swedish TV drama Andra Avenyn.
Vikander won praise from critics for her performance as Katarina, the title character in the Swedish film Pure (2010), which she made her feature film debut in. The unhappy secretary Katarina's struggle to flee her life is the subject of the movie. Vikander earned the Guldbagge Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, the Shooting Star Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, and the Rising Star Award at the 2010 Stockholm International Film Festival for this performance. She secured a contract with United Talent Agency in the US immediately after becoming represented by Tavistock Wood management in the UK. In the 2011 film The Crown Jewels, she played the principal character Fragancia Fernandez, who is detained for attempted murder. Vikander attracted worldwide notice in 2012 for portraying the pivotal character of Kitty in the English-language Anna Karenina movie starring Keira Knightley. Positive reviews were given to the movie after its world premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.
She expanded her language skills that year by co-starring in the Nikolaj Arcel motion picture A Royal Affair as Queen Caroline Mathilde. It earned positive reviews from critics after its international premiere at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival. At the 85th Academy Awards, the movie went on to receive a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. The 20th Hamptons International Film Festival named Vikander one of the 10 Actors to Watch: Breakthrough Performances of 2012; in 2013, she was nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star Award; and in 2013, she won the Editor's Choice Award at the Elle Style Awards.
She portrayed Anke Domscheit-Berg in The Fifth Estate in 2013, a member of the German Pirate Party. On September 5, 2013, the movie premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. It received a range of critical responses. In addition, Vikander played the title character of Erika in the Swedish movie Hotell, for which she won the Best Actress prize at the Marrakech International Film Festival. She had an appearance in the Australian crime drama Son of a Gun in 2014. On October 16, 2014, the movie was released in Australia. The reviews were divided, however Vikander was commended for her work.
Vikander played important parts in eight movies in 2015. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of painter Gerda Wegener in Tom Hooper's The Danish Girl, becoming the second Swedish actress to receive this honor. She also won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role, the Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Supporting Actress, and she was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress - Mot.
For her leading role as Artificial Intelligence Ava in Alex Garland's directorial debut Ex Machina, which earned her nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress - Motion Picture and the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, she received both critical acclaim and widespread acclaim. Vikander was listed in Forbes' 2016 edition of the 30 Under 30.
Alongside Kit Harington and Emily Watson, she played the part of pacifist Vera Brittain in Testament of Youth. When Testament of Youth was first released, it was favorably received, with critics applauding Vikander's performance in particular. Vikander was nominated for a BIFA Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a British Independent Film for her work as Brittain. She additionally portrayed a half-witch, half-human hybrid. Alice Deane played the female lead in Guy Ritchie's 2015 action film The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which is based on the 1964 MGM television series of the same name, narrated the Swedish documentary Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words, and appeared in the 2015 movie Burnt.
On May 6, 2016, news broke that Vikander and her agent Charles Collier had founded a production company called Vikarious. In August 2016, filming for the company's debut movie, Euphoria, a collaboration with Sweden's B-Reel Films, started in the German Alps. This is Swedish writer/director Lisa Langseth's third collaboration with actress Alicia Vikander, and it marks her English-language directing debut. Along with Eva Green and Charlotte Rampling, Vikander played rivalry-ridden sisters who were traveling through Europe in search of an unknown destination. In September 2017, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) hosted the world premiere of Euphoria.
Vikander and Matt Damon co-starred in Paul Greengrass' 2016 film Jason Bourne. On July 29, 2016, Universal Pictures published it. After that, Vikander starred alongside Michael Fassbender and Rachel Weisz in Derek Cianfrance's 2016 film adaptation of the book The Light Between Oceans. On September 2, 2016, Touchstone Pictures released the movie in the US. In the 2018 action reboot Tomb Raider, which debuted on March 16, Vikander played Lara Croft. In 2019, Vikander played the lead role in the Mike Mills-directed short film I Am Easy to Find, which was a companion piece to The National's eighth studio album of the same name. In the same year, Vikander co-starred with Riley Keough in the Netflix psychological suspense film Earthquake Bird, which was directed by Wash Westmoreland.
In the biographical drama The Glorias, directed by Julie Taymor, which had its global premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2020, Vikander played a young Gloria Steinem. The Green Knight, a David Lowery-directed fantasy film set in medieval times and distributed by A24, featured Vikander alongside Dev Patel. She also starred in Blue Bayou, which was directed by Justin Chon, and Firebrand as Queen Catherine Parr, taking Michelle Williams' place. These films were all directed by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino and produced by Luca Guadagnino.
In her private life, Vikander has called North London home.

Personal life
She met actor Michael Fassbender while filming The Light Between Oceans, and they started dating in late 2014. At the 2016 Golden Globe Awards, where Vikander was nominated for her work in Ex Machina and The Danish Girl and Fassbender was nominated for Steve Jobs, they made their first public appearance together. On October 14, 2017, they were wed in a small ceremony in Ibiza, Spain. The couple has been living in Lisbon, Portugal, as of 2017. A boy was born to them in 2021.

I'd just finished five films in a row, and [Tulip Fever] was the first one where I had a scene with another woman. Vikander identifies as a feminist and has pushed for gender equality in film. There is change taking place, and I want to be a part of it because films like The Hunger Games and Insurgent show that a female role can carry a big-budget movie, and that is significant.
Vikander was one of 584 women who demanded that the Swedish theater and cinema industries confront what they believed to be a culture of sexual assault on November 10, 2017. She put her name to an open letter that was printed in the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper in Sweden. The letter included numerous, anonymous experiences of sexual harassment, assault, and rape experienced by women working in the Swedish business. The signatories promised that they would "no longer be silent," according to a translation of the letter that was published by the Swedish newspaper The Local in English. The heads of Sweden's National Theatre Company, the Royal Dramatic Theatre, and the Royal Swedish Opera met as a result of the letter's release, according to a report in the Swedish press by Culture Minister Alice Bah Kuhnke.
