When were you happiest?
This morning when I woke up. I am generally happy.

What is your greatest fear?
I am not a fan of rats or pigeons. In New York City, they have become very confident. When I was a child, you went on the subways and the rats would stay down on the tracks, but now they hang out on the platform.

What is your earliest memory?
A hurricane in New York. My mum strapped me to her back to walk home, and all the windows were taped and boarded up.

Which living person do you most admire, and why?
People I went to school with who have careers as doctors and teachers.

What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
Impatience.

What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Passive aggression.

What would your super power be?
I’d have a remote control for time, so I could rewind, fast-forward and pause.

What makes you unhappy?
Usually other people’s unhappiness.

Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander Join New ‘Bourne’ Film

The cast of the new Bourne film is taking shape – and fans can expect to see a host of familiar faces as well as some new ones.
Julia Stiles will reportedly return for another round of spy intrigue and action, along with Matt Damon (the original Jason Bourne) and director Paul Greengrass.

Although the plot details are unknown at the moment, she is likely to reprise her role as CIA operative Nicolette, who broke the rules to help the rogue agent.

Deadline is also reporting that Alicia Vikander is joining the franchise. The Swedish actress (Ex-Machina, Testament of Youth) has signed up for the Universal Pictures release and apparently dropped a potential part in Assassins Creed due to scheduling conflicts.
Jeremy Renner took the reins in the last Bourne film, The Bourne Legacy, which grossed more than $270 million worldwide, but audiences and critics were largely unmoved by the revamp.
Damon’s three Bourne installments made nearly $1 billion at the global box office.

The untitled Bourne sequel is due in cinemas on 29 July 2016.
