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.
"But next year, the Oscars will be interesting," she told the magazine. "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.
"By this time next year, I think things are going to change.” She smiled. “I expect to be busy. I’m ready to be a bit more known.”
