Watch: Conversations with Alicia Vikander of ‘The Danish Girl’

Though some are praising actress Alicia Vikander more for her role as a mysterious robot in Ex Machina, when the Oscar nominations were announced the movie she was nominated for was The Danish Girl, in which she plays a woman in a relationship with transgender pioneer Lili Elbe (portrayed by Eddie Redmayne). Regardless of which movie she was nominated for, it’s an honor for two roles you play in one year to be considered Oscar-caliber. Vikander went how with the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, so it all worked out for the best anyway, right? The Danish Girl is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

In this conversation presented by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and moderated by Dave Karger of Fandango, Vikander speaks about her performance in The Danish Girl. She talks about how much she wanted the role, working with an established partnership in Redmayne and director Tom Holland, and how dedicated she was to authenticity.
