Alicia Vikander has charmed her way into our hearts, but has also won over the crews she works with due to the “technical” way she performs sex scenes.
While talking to Harper’s Bazaar UK, the actress spoke about her newest film “Earthquake Bird” which includes a very steamy scene with Naoki Kobayashi. Although to Vikander, she says those scenes “shouldn’t be anything but technical” despite the way it comes across on camera.
She added that she aims to shoot the scene in one take: “I probably did my first sex scene at 20 and it’s always been technical, as it should be; it should never be anything but technical. I tell the crew it’s a one-taker.”
The Swedish actress went on to explain that the scenes are choreographed and shouldn’t be any different than if you are a dancer.
“I think that’s the way to do it because then everyone feels comfortable and then hopefully, although it is super strange and uncomfortable, a little magic comes through a lens and people will be convinced,” she said.
Along with “Earthquake Bird” that hits Netflix on Nov. 15, Vikander will also reprise her role as the iconic Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider 2”, which she is looking forward to filming so she can stay put in one place.
“We’ll start filming some time closer to spring summer next year. For me, to spend four months in one place has only happened about three times in the last ten years – and it happened while I was filming Tomb Raider in Cape Town, and I started to feel at home for because I went to work and was off on weekends, so it was wonderful to have that experience,” Vikander added.
