Michael Fassbender picked up more than a role when he signed on to film The Light Between the Oceans in Australia last year. He also scored a new girlfriend – his co-star Alicia Vikander, a Swedish actress who he spent Easter weekend with in New York.

Fass, 38, born in Germany and raised in Co. Kerry, has been seeing Alicia, 26, for the past few months, at least when they’re not working. Fassbender has been spending his time these days on the West Coast, playing Steve Jobs in the new film based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling bio of the Apple genius.

Alicia, meanwhile, has been on set in Copehagen, so it seems like they met in the middle in New York. The couple spent time strolling around Soho, stealing kisses and clearly enjoying each other’s company.
