Alicia Vikander knows that her upcoming Tomb Raider reboot has an Achilles’ heel.
Recently in an interview the actress was quick to admit to host Alex Jones that the new film, starring Vikander as the titular hero, does not feature enough women.
The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was that you were this brilliant main lead, and then everybody else, bar two, who had minor roles, were men,” said the presenter.
And Vikander, who also said that playing Croft was a dream “in another universe”, concurred: “I got to work with Kristin Scott Thomas, and she is an extraordinary actress, but me too. I agree. I was on this island going, ‘There’s not enough women, where are they?’ I was running around looking for them.”
The movie stars Vikander as the lead and features two other supporting female roles, but everyone else in the film is male.
However, while she accepted that Tomb Raider could have done with more women, she did say the she believed it was still a step in the right direction.
