Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander says before making it big in showbiz, she shared a house with seven people when she moved to London from Stockholm.

The actress will be soon seen as Lara Croft in the forthcoming film Tomb Raider .

"I wanted Lara's life to reflect that of any young person arriving in London," Vikander said in a statement.

"When I first came to London, I shared a house with three girlfriends and then four more people joined us. I wanted this film to feel like it's set today, and for audiences to feel like it starts off in a place where you can relate to her," she added.

Adding to the relatability, the London-set scenes avoid landmarks and are sticking to the grimier back streets.

Tomb Raider is based on a popular reboot of a video game with the same name. It releases in the UAE on March 15.

Tomb Raider is directed by Roar Uthaug and is produced by Oscar-winner Graham King under his GK Films banner. It also features Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu and Nick Frost.
