Alicia Vikander On Playing Lara Croft in 'Tomb Raider' Reboot After Angelina Jolie: 'I Could Never Compete'

Alicia Vikander is all smiles while hitting the carpet at the photo call for her latest film Tomb Raider held at the Santo Mauro Hotel on Wednesday (February 28) in Madrid, Spain.

The 28-year-old Oscar-winning actress is playing the title role of Lara Croft, first played by Angelina Jolie over a decade ago.

“I could never compete with what Angelina did. She made her into an icon because she is an icon,” Alicia recently expressed in an interview with Games Radar. “But this is our different interpretation, we’re focused on the reboot of the game which came out a few years ago.”

“It’s the origin story – we’re not trying to copy or reinvent what she did,” Alicia concluded.
