Alicia Vikander‘s auditioning process for “The Danish Girl” was emotional and scary, but she eventually felt comfortable after initial trepidation.
“I walked in and I was quite terrified,” Vikander told TheWrap’s editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman after the film previewed as part of TheWrap’s Screening Series at the Landmark Theater in Los Angeles on Tuesday. “I don’t think I’ve ever felt so safe as I felt in that room and in an audition before. Eddie and Tom were already there, and they just said, ‘Lets just sit down and talk for half an hour.’ So that’s actually what we did.”
Vikander said that she auditioned with the “famous scene 56,” which is a very emotional part in which Elbe and Wegener wake up the day after Elbe had been kissing another man in the film.
“The Danish Girl” opens this Friday Nov, 27.
