Alicia Vikander was recently interviewed on The Graham Norton Show and she talked a bit more about her upcoming role as Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie.

Vikander is actually a fan of the video games before she got the coveted role.

The start of the interview video is really funny because Vikander says her breasts are not pointy like how Lara Croft had them in the original PSOne video games.

If you did not know already, gaming technology was limited back in the '90s because they were not able to make rounded objects look smooth.

After that, Vikander admits that she played the games as a little kid and looked at Lara Croft as an inspiration.

Even fellow actress Margot Robbie (who was also on the show) admitted her love for the Tomb Raider games as well.

You can read about Vikander's comments about the Tomb Raider video games down below. She was only around the age of 10 when she first played them. 

"I also grew up in a time when there was none of my girlfriends who played video games. I was kind of ashamed for doing it. It was a female protagonist in a video game, and I had never seen that. I was a bit too scared to play the whole game when I was about 10, so I mostly spent time doing the tricks and learning her moves in that manner. But yeah, I was a big fan when I was a kid."

Sadly, Vikander's film schedule is really busy lately that she hasn't got time to play any type of video games anymore.

Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya was also on the talk show and admits being an actor gives him no free time to play video games too.

You can watch more from the talk show in the video below. Tomb Raider releases in North America on March 16th, 2018.
