In this Sci-Fi directed by Alex Garland, Vikander plays the role of Ava, an artificial intelligence female who befriends a young computer programmer Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) after they’re introduced by his mysterious CEO Nathan (Oscar Isaac). The movie co-stars Corey Johnson, Domhall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac. Vikander on challenges faced in playing Ava:
It was difficult because in the script, which tends to be a very difficult thing about scripts, there weren’t many stage directions. So when I read it I didn’t really know what Ava looked like, what she was or anything. My self-taped audition I did is a very different Ava.
