Anna Paqquin and Stephen Moyer on the Red Carpet talking about the making of this poster was just hillarious :PP

GQ Interview with Alexander Skarsgård
Image



Brett Martin, a reporter from GQ, was able to go whale watching with Alexander Skarsgård to talk about his life, family, and True Blood. They began off the coast of Long Beach, where the reporter was told to wear warm clothes which he later regretted since it was a blazing 85 degree California day. Brett points out that Alexander is wearing a V-neck shirt and light sweater, looking as tall as ever.

Why We Love Him:
While the popularity of Alexander Skarsgård among True Blood fans is vast, the actor is known mainly by HBO viewers. The viewers first fell in love with him during Generation Kill, and of course now love him for his character the mighty Eric Northman. For those who don’t know Eric Northman or are new to the show, Eric is a very old vampire who is the sheriff of the area where vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and human Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Pacquin) reside. While in the beginning, the show was centered more on Sookie and Bill, Eric has fought his way into the limelight and Sookie’s heart more and more each season.

Since True Blood will be premiering in less than a month, fans of “Team Eric” can enjoy Alexander all through the year and into the next season of True Blood. Melancholia premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and in September, Straw Dogs comes out. Also, in 2012, he is slated to play a character in the board game action movie Battleship. What a busy and exciting year for him and for fans!

Home Life:
The interviewer remarks how at ease Alexander is near the water. Since Alex grew up in Sweden and frequently vacationed close to the water, it is something he misses immensely and feels at peace being around. While he spends most of his free time back home, he does seem to like America.

“You walk into the coffee shop, and the girl asks how your day is. When I first moved here, I loved that. I know it’s shallow and superficial and she doesn’t give a f*** about my day, but I still like it.”


Growing up in a very popular family, with a recognizable face for a father has to be hard for any child. It is known that Alex acted when he was a teenager, but was turned off by the intrusions of his privacy from the female fans — something that he has since overcome. It is very obvious that there is much respect between the father and son Skarsgård. Alex clearly says that he doesn’t want to compete with his father, but wants to be a part of his life, which for the most part growing up, meant acting. The Skarsgård children number six sons and one daughter. About his sons, father Stellan jokes,

“Of course I’m threatened, they’re younger, they’re better-looking, and they’re all trying to kill me.”

Even though Alex and his interviewer didn’t get to see any whales, a lot of catching up was done, and it’s a thoroughly good interview. Can’t wait to see him play my favorite character on June 26th, only on HBO.

He looks ...... :w00t: :wub: :w00t: :wub: :w00t: :wub:

I happened to be flipping through the channels earlier and noticed he was on Regis! I loved the interview! I liked when they asked him if he was at all skiddish about the nudity. He said, "I am from Sweden." :lol:

I think he's going to be a big star here in the states! Especially after his character's turn this season on TB. People are seeing that he can play the romantic role as well as the viking bad ass.

yes, I was looking some of my old art work and I was thinking how both Eric are completly different characters! and how he is doing an amazing job with that! and I hope the industry notices that too... the movie he is doing is with Julianne Moore... lets hope it gets good reviews and publicity

And he's got to be getting his memories back a some point....I wonder how he will play the character then, if he has both sets of memories?

Hahahahaha, loved the interview, thanks for posting Miss Ford. :thumbsup:

I hope he will, in the US and beyond, hehe. He has a few films coming out this and next year: the Straw Dogs remake (and have read his acting rocks in it), Battleship and What Maisie Knew. Plus, Melancholia has had good reviews, but haven't watched it, so I don't know.

But if you want to see him in another completely different facet, check out HBO's mini-series Generation Kill. Superb, superb series. :thumbup:

I tend to believe he will remember, even if he won't like it (well, at least some of it he will, for sure... hehe ;) ). The thing is, I think this amnesia Eric is a real side of him that eventually became buried after 1000 years of being a vampire and dealing with all the tough stuff it involves. To survive and become powerful, he had to roughen up, but if we remember his human family flashback, he was pretty carefree and loving. That's why I say he probably won't like it, because he's been vulnerable and innocent and for sure a vampire like Eric doesn't want any of that (even if he couldn't have done anything, in his mind he probably thinks he couldn't protect his family properly because of his attitude). The thing is, I believe he will have to evaluate what he has achieved by being nicer, well, that if he wants to stay around Sookeh. :P
