If you don’t recognize the actress in the above photo, I can guarantee you will by the end of 2015. You might have seen her in this year’s sci-fi sleeper hit Ex Machina, as Ava the robot, or her beautiful portrayal of Vera Brittain in Testament of Youth, based on the memoir of the same name. She has seven films being released this year and it was just announced that she is the new face of Louis Vuitton. Her most recent film is Guy Ritchie’s 60’s action flick The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and her performance as Gaby, an undercover British agent, is the key aspect that keeps this film from being a major disappointment. Originally from Sweden, Vikander made her feature film debut in Pure (2009). Her upcoming films include the highly anticipated biopic The Danish Girl, starring Eddie Redmayne, which has been getting Oscar buzz for the past few months, and Burnt, which she is starring in alongside Bradley Cooper.
