Alicia Vikander addresses criticism Eddie Redmayne faced for playing a trans woman



Alicia Vikander is speaking out about the criticism Eddie Redmayne faced for playing a real-life transgender woman in their 2015 film  "When we were making the film, it was such a learning experience. And I think Eddie did a wonderful job in the role.”

“I totally understand the criticism that has been out there, because we need to make change and we need to make sure that trans men and women actually get a foot in and get work. My only concern is that we may need to get to a point in the end where we have trans women and men playing cis characters. Because that is the main thing, you know?”
