The actress, who is married to Irish actor Michael Fassbender, reckons the two countries have a lot in common.
"Ireland and Sweden have wonderful connections. Very warm countries - very humble, nice people. All of us like to drink and dance, which makes it easier for us to communicate and get to know one another," she told RTÉ Entertainment.
She may be married to a Kerryman, but the Lora Croft star has surprisingly only been to our shores on the one occasion.
"I've only had the chance to be in Ireland just once, and I really hope that I will be able to go back soon."
