Academy Award winning-actress Alicia Vikander says her “Jason Bourne” co-star Matt Damon was like everyone’s mate on the sets.

Vikander said in a statement: “I, like most people, had heard that Matt Damon is one of the most wonderful human beings and I knew he was a brilliant actor but on the sets he’s like everyone’s mate.”

“He knows everyone’s names. When it was my first day on the set, he just came up and said ‘Hi’ and asked ‘If you just want to sit down and have a chat’. He makes everyone in the room very comfortable.”

She also revealed how the script of the film got her thinking about things she had never thought of.

“Watching most spy films while growing up, I had seen a certain way of what that genre was like. Suddenly, I was faced with something that was completely new, and I loved that I found myself thinking, ‘What if Bourne actually exists? What if he is actually running out in the streets?’ I loved that you wanted it to be true.

“I appreciated the integration of the social and political aspects, making it an intelligent movie, while keeping it a popcorn franchise and all of the fun and scale that that means,” Vikander said.
