Will you be able to make it to June, when we can finally see Eric again on True Blood? We’re not so sure we can survive the wait!
How hot is Alexander Skarsgard? We’re practically salivating over the cover of this month’s LA Times Magazine as the hunky Swede – who plays vampire sheriff Eric Northman on HBO’s True Blood – graces the cover.
But if you thought Alexander was just aimlessly wandering around making out with rumored gal pal Kate Bosworth, you’ll be happy to hear that’s been a busy man during his show’s hiatus, filming not one but TWO movies: Straw Dogs and the Swedish film Trust Me. Bloody fantastic! The more Alexander, the merrier!
Check out what the hot 33-year-old had to say in his interview with LA Times Magazine, where he dishes about entourages, cinema and trying to commute across the world to do his movie Trust Me and True Blood!
- On playing a vampire: “People are kind of intrigued because they represent immortality. And a character like Eric has been around for a thousand years. All that wisdom and experience—you carry it around with you. That’s attractive.”
- On working on two projects at the same time: “I flew back and forth between Shreeport, Louisiana, and this tiny island on the Baltic Sea. It was a bit of a nightmare, because it took, like, 23 hours to get from one place to another… I probably aged about 20 years doing that.”
- On having an entourage: “I’m not a “Hollywood” actor. I am a social guy, but I’m not one of those actors who will show up to a shoot with 15 agents and managers and publicists. An entourage like that just makes me uncomfortable.”
