Swedish born and son of talented actor, Stellan Skarsgard, Alexander is the sexy Viking vampire, Eric Northman on HBO’s True Blood.
Alexander began acting in his early teens; and then later decided to study theatre in New York City. Eventually, he returned home to Sweden to become a local star. In 2001, he landed a part in Zoolander (Ben Stiller), but continued his career in mostly Swedish productions.
Then in 2008, he was given the part of a life time….True Blood. He portrays a vampire whose evil tendencies are often overcome by love for his family and Sookie Stackhouse.
Without a doubt, Alexander has a very promising future; and we look forward to his next work in the remake of Straw Dogs (2011) (co-stars with James Marsden, Kate Bosworth and James Woods). Alexander is an amazing talent and definitely not hard on the eyes either.
