Why Does Beckett’s April Look Very familiar?

The August 13, 2021 release date for the forthcoming Netflix thriller “Beckett” is fast approaching. An American traveller on vacation with his girlfriend in Greece becomes the subject of a manhunt, played by John David Washington. After finding himself in a precarious situation, Beckett must make his way to the U.S. Embassy in order to clear his reputation.

Vicky Krieps, the co-lead in 2017’s “Phantom Thread” and more recently “Old,” and Boyd Holbrook, one of the stars of Netflix’s “Narcos,” round out the film’s supporting cast. It’s also worth noting that Alicia Vikander plays Beckett’s girlfriend, April, who is heavily featured in the film’s teaser.

So far, Vikander has seen tremendous success in her acting career, including an Oscar victory. You may view Vikander’s most noteworthy roles and where you may have seen her before in the following list:

Anna Karenina and The Fifth Estate were two of Alicia Vikander’s early roles.

Another adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s famous novel “Anna Karenina” was made in 2012 by filmmaker Joe Wright. Konstantin Levin (Domhnall Gleeson) is in love with Princess Ekaterina Alexandrovna Shcherbatskaya, played by Vikander. However, after falling in love with Levin (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Anna Karenina ends up marrying Vronsky (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).

After reading the novel for the first time as a teenager, Vikander said, “I felt Kitty was this innocent, naive girl who didn’t stand up for herself. I had to get more life experience before I could truly comprehend her decisions and the things she sacrificed or battled for in order to be where she is now.”

A biographical thriller about WikiLeaks starring Vikander was released the next year. Alicia Vikander plays Anke Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl), the ex-wife of a former WikiLeaks spokeswoman. Vikander spoke with GQ about the film’s subject. This is what she told me: “I already knew a lot about WikiLeaks. Before the war logs were made public in Sweden, one of the most known films on the subject was aired on television. However, the subject of transparency is brought up.”

Ex Machina and The Danish Girl, both critically acclaimed, followed

Her “Anna Karenina” co-star, Domhnall Gleeson, reunited with Vikander in 2014’s sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina.” During a week-long stay at Nathan’s (Oscar Isaac) home, Caleb (Gleeson), a programmer for a prominent online firm, meets Ava, played by Vikander, a gorgeous robot. As Ava’s human counterpart in the Turing test, Caleb is tasked with determining Ava’s level of awareness and feeling.

Vikander told IndieWire, “It was a terrifying thing to do, but interesting because you try looking for roles you haven’t done before, and typically you can identify to the character being human.”

Vikander followed up her lauded performance in “Ex Machina” with a role in Eddie Redmayne’s biographical film “The Danish Girl.” A woman named Lili Elbe had gender reassignment surgery for the first time, and Vikander portrays her wife Gerda Wegener.

Her husband’s gender identity journey took place in the mid-1920s, which was a much more conservative era, thus Gerda fully supports her husband’s choices. In a statement to Collider, Vikander stated, “… Gerda’s energy was contagious. Whenever you represent someone that you like for their kindness, it’s impossible not to be motivated.” Best Supporting Actress went to Vikander, and she won the Academy Award for it.

Action films like The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” starred Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Elizabeth Debicki, and Hugh Grant, and Vikander was a member of the ensemble cast. Her character is Gaby Teller, the daughter of an accused Nazi scientist who turned out to be an operative for the United States, as well as a collaborator with the United States as a whole.

Vikander also appeared in the fifth chapter of the Jason Bourne film series in 2016, “Jason Bourne.” Jennifer Vikander is the CIA’s Heather Lee, who is in charge of hunting down Jason Bourne (Matt Damon).

“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” star Alicia Vikander talked on how women’s roles in action films are changing for the better in an interview with Vulture. “It’s been interesting doing press for this picture, since both Elizabeth [Debicki] and I have noticed that most of the questions we receive are about how uncommon it is to have such strong female characters in this genre,” she said in her statement.

Having so many people enthused about it is wonderful. People will hopefully stop being shocked and it will become a reality. I think we’re demonstrating that you can have a female lead in a franchise movie and still have a huge success in the previous few years.”
