Michael Fassbender Fell In Love With Alicia Vikander On Movie Set – Watch ‘GMA’ Interview (VIDEO)
Michael Fassbender appeared on Thursday’s “Good Morning America,” during which he admitted to falling in love with girlfriend Alicia Vikander on set of their new movie, The Light Between Oceans. Watch the actor’s full “GMA” interview below!
The two stars began dating in 2014 while filming their new drama, in which they play a married couple who find a baby in a rowboat shortly after losing their own newborn child. The characters decide to raise the child as their own, a choice that leads to devastating consequences. Fassbender and Vikander spent a good chunk of the shoot in an isolated lighthouse together, where they instantly hit it off.
When asked during his “GMA” interview if the two “fell in love on set,” Fassbender confirmed that to be the case. “Yeah, we met on that job and have been seeing each other since,” he noted. The actor also praised his girlfriend’s performance in the film, saying, “She’s such a fierce performer. She’s so brave. She’s not afraid to bring ugly personality traits to the forefront in characters. So I was really impressed by her immediately.”
Fassbender and Vikander’s real-life chemistry can be seen on screen when The Light Between Oceans hits theaters on Friday. Watch the actor’s full “GMA” interview in the video below!
