Swedish actress Alicia Vikander said she's "ready to be a bit more known".

The 26-year-old has been billed as Hollywood's one to watch in 2015, least of all because of her relationship with Irish actor Michael Fassbender, whom she refuses to discuss.

She features as W Magazine's April cover girl and while the interviewer revealed she was fresh from a romantic weekend with the Kerry native.

Vikander, who met Fassbender on the set of The Light Between Oceans, said she's already looking forward to next year's Academy Awards, where she hopes to have three solid films featured.
