Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander open up about their love

Talented, beautiful, and successful, the Irish actor and Swedish actress were undoubtedly made for each other from the start.

The two play a married couple in the upcoming tearjerker The Light Between Oceans, which is currently due to hit Irish cinemas in January 2017.

Set post-World War II, The Light Between the Oceans relates how a young couple struggling with infertility rescue an abandoned baby from a rowboat and decide to raise her as their own.

Fassbender and Vikander have been dating since 2014 and in a recent interview with ET, they talked about the first time they met one another before making the movie.


Fassbender said their chemistry was there ‘from the beginning’ while Vikander explained ‘we had met at Toronto Film Festival and just on the dance floor.’ Michael replied ‘I thought [I was a good dancer] until she started dancing and then I felt like I had two left feet.’

He went on to praise his co-star and partner, saying ‘she's a very fierce performer and very brave, testing the boundaries and how far you can go. She’s got all of those things in spades.

‘I was like, what is this love thing?’ Awwww!
