Jason Bourne actress Alicia Vikander says the people most impressed by her starring role in the spy thriller were her old housemates.
Vikander was a big Bourne fan before she was cast as CIA agent Heather Lee alongside Matt Damon.
Appearing on ITV's Lorraine, she said: "When I moved to London I lived with some girlfriends and we had the box of the trilogy. I remember on Sundays and when we didn't have anything else to do, we would re-watch Bourne.
"They were the first people that I called when I heard. They were probably the most impressed of anyone."
The Swedish-born actress, 27, said she was looking forward to hitting the red carpet for the premiere in London on Monday evening.
On her personal style, she told Lorraine Kelly: "I guess I just like to play around with it.
"I'm very much: I have my three pairs of black jeans and my T-shirts that I have, and then of course this is just a chance to get to dress up."
The Oscar-nominated actress will soon star as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, taking over the role from Angelina Jolie.
She said: "She was such an icon and I grew up loving these films and I played the game when I was a kid, but they rebooted the game a few years ago so it's now becoming more of an origins story, so it's quite different.
"I'm excited to do the stunts that will be involved."
