The Oscar winner stars in the HBO series by French auteur Olivier Assayas, based on his 1996 film of the same name, about remaking an iconic work from the silent film era.

How does one remake a remake? The answer still confuses Alicia Vikander.

The actress is currently producing and starring in the new HBO series Irma Vep by director Olivier Assayas, who is recreating his 1996 French film of the same name which featured Maggie Cheung (In the Mood for Love, Hero) in the titular role. Both iterations follow an actress who is cast in a remake of the 1915 silent film serial Les Vampires to play villainess Irma Vep (an anagram for “vampire”), and finds the character rubbing off on her as she delves into the role—and slips into her famous black bodysuit.

Hollywood has churned out many movies about making movies. In fact, it loves them. (See: Mank, Singin’ in the Rain, Hail, Caesar!) But HBO’s Irma Vep takes that self-referential element to a mind-boggling degree. Vikander, an Oscar winner and Tomb Raider star, plays a successful actress, Mira, whose career somewhat mirrors her own. Meanwhile, Vincent Macaigne plays director René Vidal, an analogue for Assayas: René is filming an Irma Vep series with Mira, but has already made Irma Vep, the hit indie film, in the ’90s (referencing Assayas’s 1996 Irma Vep film) with the actress Jade Lee (who represents Cheung). And both of René’s Irma Vep projects are adapted from Louis Feuillade’s Les Vampires. Now read that again.

“I even got lost—still get lost—and it gets worse with every episode,” Vikander laughs on the phone, speaking from Paris, where she’s finalizing the last two Irma Vep episodes and meeting with Assayas and members of the crew. “I think that’s the beauty of it,” she adds.

In a time when the entertainment industry feels like one big reboot machine, Irma Vep is refreshing, with its cheeky self-awareness, and at times, self-mockery. It’s almost as if Assayas is saying, “I know how bizarre this all looks.” It doesn’t shy away from the issues with making reboots, either. René voices his insecurities about recreating an iconic work of cinema. Characters discuss whether the story of Irma Vep is fit for a series, whether it’s bingeable, whether it’s too niche for a mainstream audience. “It’s the kind of conversations that I think, especially for people in the film industry, if you’re doing that, that’s what you talk about,” Vikander says. She credits Assayas’s “brilliant mind” for writing a realistic-sounding script. “He writes like people talk.”

In 1996, Olivier Assayas debuted his film “Irma Vep” at the Cannes Film Festival. 26 years later, the French filmmaker is back at the festival with the same project — but this time, revisited as a HBO series that stars Alicia Vikander.

Vikander plays the starring role of a disillusioned actress in the upcoming television show. But in real life, she is the rare star to reject the world of celebrity. In fact, Vikander reveals she doesn’t even have an assistant, in contrast to her “Irma Vep” character.

“I, myself, have never had an assistant who lived with me 24/7 or cook [or make] coffee for me, but I’ve always been quite intrigued by what that is because I’ve seen some people in my industry, or colleagues, who have that, and it’s just… that wouldn’t work for me, personally,” Vikander said at the Variety Studio presented by Campari at Cannes Film Festival in conversation with Assayas. “So, that was kind of interesting to tap into that and see what that dependent relationship looks like.”

“I feel like I have my armor on,” she said as she readied for the red carpet in a copper column gown.

Alicia Vikander hit the red carpet Sunday evening for the premiere of her upcoming series “Irma Vep” in a custom Louis Vuitton copper column dress, readied as if going into an extremely stylish battle.

“I feel like I have my armor on, a very beautiful Cannes version. I’m excited to see the light hit it when we are on the red carpet,” Vikander told WWD as she dressed in the Louis Vuitton suite minutes ahead of the premiere.

The gown blended two looks from last week’s cruise show in San Diego with warrior cues in copper beading. Created with Nicolas Ghesquière, the pair started on the look as soon as the festival lineup was revealed in mid-April. It took two weeks and over a thousand hours to construct the sculptural gown.

Vikander, who has been an ambassador for Vuitton since 2015, said she has developed not just a creative clothing partnership with Ghesquière but also a friendship.

“The incredible thing is he has such an eye to make beautiful creations and gowns, but he also sees me as a person wearing it. It’s incredible when I get the sketches, it’s defined that he knows me and I can see that,” she said. “The thing with Nicolas is that his own style is very much looking back and honoring classic fashions or styles, honoring those materials and craftsmanship and bringing it out and mixing it up to become something almost ahead of its time,” the actress added.

When she started on the “Irma Vep” project with director Olivier Assayas, she saw some synergy and brought the two together.

“The most exciting thing was that both Olivier and Nicolas, I had separately heard them talking about each other and say that they are fans of one another, so it was one of those things that I was so happy to make sure they met and made that connection,” she said. The result was Ghesquière designing all of the costumes for Vikander’s character in the series.

The series is a remake of Assayas’ own 1996 film “Irma Vep,” which itself is a remake of the 1915 soap opera “Les Vampires” from Louis Feuillade. The new series plays with those contradictions in time as well as toys with the idea of being a movie within a movie, confusing what is real and what is part of the plot.

Alicia Vikander on 10 Years Since Her ‘A Royal Affair’ Breakout, Moving Back to TV With ‘Irma Vep’

It’s been a decade since Alicia Vikander burst onto the international scene thanks to her turn as an (almost) reformist Danish queen in the 2012 Berlinale winner and Oscar nominee A Royal Affair.

During those years, the Swedish actress has won an Oscar (for 2015’s The Danish Girl), joined one major franchise (2016’s Jason Bourne), put on Angelina Jolie’s dusty vest for another (2018’s Tomb Raider reboot), married Magneto/Steve Jobs/Macbeth (Michael Fassbender, in 2017) and, in early 2021, had a son.

This year, she returns to Cannes — with her 1-year-old in tow — with Irma Vep, Olivier Assayas’ miniseries remake for A24 of his own 1996 cult film, which is itself about a director trying to remake a film (Louis Feuillade’s silent classic Les Vampires). As she admits, it’s a “very meta” project that marks her return to the small screen after having made a name for herself in Swedish soap operas.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter from the U.K. set of period drama Firebrand (she plays Catherine Parr, the sixth and final wife of Henry VIII, alongside Jude Law), Vikander, who now resides with her family in Lisbon, discusses her first Cannes visit (and her first couture gown), explains why she’s not like the disillusioned movie star she plays in Irma Vep (no assistant, for starters) and looks back fondly on the past 10 years.

You’ve been to Cannes a few times. Do you have any favorite memories?

I think my biggest moment was probably the first time. I may have been to the Berlin Film Festival before that, but there’s something about Cannes. I still find it’s the festival where I experience the illusion of it — there’s something about the rosé and the Croisette. I think the first time I got to go, I had just finished A Royal Affair, and we were doing press there. I was invited to the Valentino Suite and I got dressed in a couture gown, and I had never touched a couture gown in my life. It freaked me out. But it was pretty cool.

The Oscar-winning Swedish actress Alicia Vikander tells Sasha Slater about her unconventional upbringing and playing the ultimate femme fatale

It is a sunny, but bitingly cold, March morning on a quiet side street in Paris. Alicia Vikander, tousled, draped in diamonds, bare-footed and wearing a filmy black negligée, is posing on a rooftop for the Harper’s Bazaar shoot. There are 17 people milling around her holding coffees, warm robes and blusher, including the florist, the make-up artist and the photographer. And everywhere, spring flowers are piled up in drifts, while the stylist teases individual petals on a particularly lush, creamy bloom to get it ready for a close-up. It’s quite a scene.

The next morning, Vikander and I meet in the belle époque splendour of the Salon Proust at the Ritz Paris. She appears alone at precisely 8am, having been awake since six, playing with her one-year-old son. “He’s learning to walk,” she says. “So it’s good there’s carpet everywhere.” I shouldn’t be surprised she’s so punctual. She says she’s never late: “never. My mum was strict about time.”

At 33, Vikander already has an Oscar win under her belt (for The Danish Girl). In the course of her stellar career, she has stepped into Angelina Jolie’s combat boots as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider and has played an android in Ex Machina, the feminist writer Vera Brittain and the political activist Gloria Steinem. Along the way, she fell in love with her now-husband, the Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender; they have been married for five years and have just set up home together in Lisbon.

We are now in France to talk about her latest, and perhaps strangest, role to date: a Sky Atlantic television series called Irma Vep, written and directed by the French filmmaker Olivier Assayas. In it, she plays Mira, an American film star who comes to Paris to act in a remake of Les Vampires, a French silent classic about a criminal gang, whose antiheroine is the wholly amoral, black-catsuited femme fatale Irma Vep (an anagram of vampire).

This show offers a fresh take on Assayas’ cult 1996 film of the same name, which featured the Hong Kong star Maggie Cheung as the actress portraying the villainess. As Vikander says in her (almost) perfect, charmingly transatlantic, English, “it’s so meta, it’s eating itself “. She declines to define what the series is, exactly: melo-drama? Crime caper? Comedy? “I think, while I was making it, I played five roles… It’s like Chinese boxes. There’s always something else going on. I think that’s the beauty of the project.” The series also has a voyeuristic edge, giving a convincing impression of the drama behind the scenes on a struggling film whose director is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

On this week’s Little Gold Men, the Oscar winner talks about bonding with her onscreen daughter in Louisiana and revisiting Ingrid Bergman films during quarantine.

At first blush, Swedish-born Alicia Vikander couldn’t be further from her latest character. In Justin Chon’s soulful indie Blue Bayou, she plays Kathy—a Southern nurse expecting a child with her New-Orleans-raised, South Korea-born husband Antonio (played by Chon). The couple’s existence is rocked when Antonio is taken into ICE custody and threatened with imminent deportation to the country he hasn’t even visited since he was a child.

It was the exact contrast between Vikander and Kathy, and her desire to find their similarities, that made Blue Bayou such an exciting project. The film, in theaters Sept. 17, also serves as a reminder to Vikander about why she fell in love with filmmaking. “This has obviously been such a tough year for so many people around the world, but for me, it made me not work for a year, which hasn’t happened in, well, my entire career,” Vikander tells V.F.’s Katey Rich about working post-pandemic. “In one way that break made me be able to stop and really reflect over why I love doing this and make me miss it. It’s a job that reinvents itself and becomes new for each day, which makes it so alive and giving.”

On this week’s Little Gold Men, Vikander opens up about shooting on-location in Louisiana, building a connection with her onscreen daughter, and changing her career trajectory after winning an Oscar for in 2016. The episode also contains Oscars and Emmys race updates, along with a special farewell to longtime LGM co-host Joanna Robinson.

Read a partial transcript of the Alicia Vikander interview below.

My colleague talked to Justin Chon about Blue Bayou a little while ago before it was at Cannes. He talked about how he felt so confident in your ability to take on this role that is, as far as we know, pretty removed from your own personal experience. So when he came to you with that confidence, how did you feel about it? Did you look at this role and say, “Yes, this is something I can absolutely do”?

Well, it’s also one of those things where it is very different from any role that has been presented to me. And it was a small film, but it was because of that I was very intrigued to do it. When I began my career, it was interesting, I was in America and because I had played maybe a royal or a princess, or had a bit of a British accent because I lived there for a while, people assume that I come from an upper-class background and that’s not really the case. I’m more of a working-class background in a small town in Sweden.

An enforced pause meant that the globe-hopping, high-achieving Alicia Vikander had the chance to stop and reflect. Now she’s back at work, it’s not all business as usual…

‘I’M IN A GARAGE!’ cries Oscar-winning actor Alicia Vikander. She picks up her laptop and twirls me around on Zoom to prove it. Indeed, she is surrounded by grey concrete pillars and industrial strip lighting in, what I can gather, is a subterranean garage somewhere in Paris. And then she’s back, the camera on her dainty figure with hair scraped back into a ballerina’s bun, revealing tiny white ear buds that wouldn’t have looked out of place on her character Ava, the AI robot she played in Ex Machina.

It’s not her garage. She’s on set for the ELLE cover shoot, but Vikander is perfectly happy with the set-up. After all, she says, this is her first day back at work after several months.

As coronavirus shuttered the world, Vikander was stuck in France where she’d attended Paris Fashion Week, sitting front row at Louis Vuitton – a brand she’s been an ambassador of for five years. With European borders rapidly closing, she escaped the capital city to her holiday house near a small farming village in rural France, where she spent most of lockdown holed up with her husband, the actor Michael Fassbender.

The Zoom calls she took there, for work and to catch up with family, had a slightly more homely background than the one she’s framed by now, with a bookshelf and a window looking out onto greenery. I ask whether there was ever, you know, any risk of Fassbender walking past the window unsuspectingly while she was on a call. It’s not happened thus far… ‘But that’s the thing when you’re in your house,’ she laughs. ‘There’s always a risk of someone in the background. My husband was often around making coffee or putting the boiler on,’ she says, giving a rare domestic insight into the life of one of Hollywood’s starriest, but famously private, couples.

However cosy the set up in France sounds – and it does sound idyllic, with trips to the market, grilled fish cooked on the BBQ, impromptu dancing in the kitchen and virtual poker nights with her family – her enthusiasm for being back at work is palpable.

Former ballerina Alicia Vikander has deemed the focus put on dancers’ bodies “unhealthy”.

The Oscar winner studied ballet before finding fame as an actress, and has spoken about her experiences in a new chat with Elle U.K. magazine.

“Being in a leotard looking at your body in a mirror seven hours a day, six days a week and having people talk about your body in front of you and in front of other girls and boys… Growing up with that is not healthy,” she said.

“I was very lucky to go through ballet school without having an eating disorder. I don’t know how,” Alicia explained, noting that it was her mother who spoke to her every day about the dangers of a negative body image.

However, when the Swedish star stopped dancing, she struggled to accept her changing body.

“But when I stopped ballet, I continued to eat a lot and – it’s stupid because I was really thin when I was dancing – but I gained two or three kilos and I freaked out when I saw a photo (of myself) because my body had changed,” the 31-year-old shared.

“Like so many other girls I was like, I shouldn’t eat carbs. That was the first thing I heard about, so I stopped eating bread.”

It was only after landing the role of Lara Croft in 2018’s Tomb Raider, where she was required to train from 4am daily and gained around 5kg of muscle, that The Danish Girl actress realised the importance of diet and exercise.

“I’ve often thought to myself, if I were to have a kid, would I put them in ballet school? I do really treasure a lot of my work ethic and things that I got from that education, but it either makes you or breaks you,” she mused. “And it could have as easily have gone the other way (for me).” [Source]

When Alicia Vikander won her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2016 for her heartbreaking portrayal of a wife – whose husband was one of the first to undergo gender reassignment – in The Danish Girl she was at the top of Hollywood.

However, it wasn’t always Alicia’s destiny to be dripping in Louis Vuitton with an Academy Award in hand. Until she was 19 years old the Swedish born actress’s destiny revolved around tutus and plies when a back injury put an end to her dream of being a ballet dancer.

Here in a rare, personal interview Alicia Vikander opens up in our latest edition of GLAMOUR UNFILTERED, hosted by Josh Smith as she releases her latest film – the new Netflix thriller – Earthquake Bird which aptly is about the physical and personal earthquakes in life. Here she discusses the earthquake moment in her own life – leaving ballet behind – why she is proud she had an “inner compass,” as the start of her acting career and how speaking up and owning her own voice in sex scenes, in the “moment when you were afraid,” empowered her….
