She has 5 half-siblings on her father’s side, and even though her parents were separated when she was so young, she never had to miss any one of them and she had the best of both worlds growing up as she was her mother’s only child and hence the apple of her eye.

Besides that, she appeared in several musicals too at the opera and in 1997 appeared in kids singing TV show Småstjärnorna.
At the age of 16, she decided to leave the school as she discovered her passion for acting and she had also made her peace with the fact that thanks to her injuries, she couldn’t have a career in dancing. She also applied to drama school twice but didn’t make it. however, this couldn’t stop her from achieving her dream and finally made it to Hollywood.

Popular Movies/TV Series
She first appeared in a TV show called the first avenue in 2007 and her debut movie was pure(2009). After that, she featured in a lot of famous and blockbuster movies including “A Royal Affair” for which she had to learn danish because even though she didn’t know how to speak the language, which was very important for her role, she was the perfect fit for the role, and the same was proved soon after the release of the movie as she was highly appreciated for that.

Personal Quotes (Maximum 4 quotes)
- Next year the Oscars will be interesting. If all goes well, I’m going to have three films in contention. I’ve had many years of working a lot without being in the public eye. And that’s been good. But by this time next year, I think things are going to change. I expect to be busy. I’m ready to be a bit more known. (she told in an interview with “W Magazine” in 2015)
- I always get that question-where are your parents really from? Do you know where your dad’s from? [My parents] are both from very small villages, from up north and south of Sweden. I’m [also] a quarter Finnish, but that doesn’t really make me much darker. (On being asked about her appearance)
- During the production of The Danish Girl (2015), the filmmakers were obsessed with me not looking Scandinavian and I was like, “I’m the only Scandinavian in the whole film”. They paled my skin, to make me lighter. People say that I’m tanned, but that’s my natural color. (Alicia told during an interview with “The New York Times”)
- I’d love to continue to work in Europe and the US. What I’m looking for is the right film and if that’s a big studio film, or a tiny film being shot in a few days in Europe, that’s not what I’m thinking about-it’s about the project and who I’m going to do it with.
