Look-alike: Niv Sultan and Alicia Vikander

They look like long lost twins. At first, I thought Alicia Vikander knows how to speak Hebrew and Farsi, but to my surprise, Tehran’s leading actress isn’t Alicia Vikander but another actress named Niv Sultan.

They are both hot and pretty with striking resemblance. I just can’t resist to not blog about it as I cannot find any articles or blog posts that already did.

So here you go! Niv Sultan and Alicia Vikander looks exactly the same. Like long lost twins!

Alicia Vikander or Niv Sultan?
Niv Sultan or Alicia Vikander?
Alicia Vikander? Niv Sultan? Niv Vikander!
Alicia Vikander! Oh wait, it’s Niv Sultan!

    Same thing happened with me, i watched till 4th episode and i thought it was Alicia. They can really play twin sister in a movie.

  2. I was fooled too, I really thought it was Alicia Vikander

  3. Huge Alicia fan for a long time, but I doubted she was doing a series. Great call Bryan!!! BTW that’s exactly how we spelled our son’s name … I will now follow Niv’s career, and hope they do someday play twins in the same feature.

      Less than a hundred per day. So only a few noticed. ???

  5. Just looked it up after starting series this morning. The resemblance between Niv and Alicia is more than skin deep. Both are accolplicpshed actors. I am liking this intriguing series.

    i thought the exact same thing! I started watching TEHRAN on Apple TV+ because I thought she (Niv Sultan) was Alicia Vikander, and I‘m a fan.

  7. Thank you Bryan, I was starting to believe I was delusional! They are doppelgängers! I also can’t believe more people aren’t commenting, maybe when people see Tehran.

      Hahaha! Yeah! Long lost twins!

  8. Hi I watched Teheran tonite for the first time and after a few minutes I noticed the resemblance. I googled the names of the two actresses but apparently this blog Is the only place where this was noticed. Maybe because this actress is not famous enough yet

  9. Same here ? that’s why I keep searching and here it is ??

  10. All I want to say is that I couldn’t agree with all of you more. Alicia and Niv couldn’t look more alike. I just finished watching the series and I finally decided to google the names and got your blog. Happy to see all of you noticing the resemblance as well.

  11. Just started Tehran on a flight today and had the same experience as you with Vikander speaking Hebrew and Farsi. I was like “damn that’s a good accent for two languages learned for a role” …until I got home and had IMDB set me straight. Thanks for the post.

  12. I still think that it’s Alicia. She is just acting that she is another actor named Niv Sultan ?

    Omg, I was telling my husband the same thing, that this girl in Tehran is Alicia Vikander, of course I was baffled by the language so I looked up the cast and found out she is Niv Sultan. Wow! That’s crazy, they are indeed like lost twins!

    I watched both seasons (well, minus the upcoming Season 2 finale) before I realized while watching the on-set bonus interviews that I hadn’t been seeing Alicia Vikander all along! I’d even told people about the series and that I couldn’t believe how well Alicia Vikander was “faking” Farsi and Hebrew.
