Notable Role: Caroline Mathilde in A Royal Affair (2012)

The Swedish actress, despite being only 24, already has a very prolific career in her homeland. She's appeared in a TV drama, Andra Avenyn, won a Guldbagge Award for Best Actress for her film, Pure, and appeared in several musicals at the Gothenburg Opera.

As Kitty in director Joe Wright's Anna Karenina, she peaked the attention of American audiences. Now that she's set to appear in the first installment of the dark fantasy novel series, The Wardstone Chronicles, entitled The Seventh Son, Vikander is guaranteed to become just as famous in the U.S. as she is in Sweden.
