Daniel Wu and Alicia Vikander of the Tomb Raider reboot appear on the cover of Vogue China April edition looking glammed up and sophisticated compared to their characters’ rather rugged appearance in the film.
The 43-year-old Chinese American actor who also stars in AMC’s Into the Badlands stated that he was attracted to the film because of his role as Lu Ren and that the role isn’t just a placeholder to appease the Chinese market. Daniel who trained in martial arts for years didn’t have a problem with all the action. Alicia, on the other hand, said that she had to put herself through a very strict regime of diet and exercise until she got to the point of earning praises from Daniel. Looking at them now, I’d say it was worth it!
Daniel has aged so horribly, his lips are sunken
