On his apprehensiveness over press coverage:
"It freaked me out to be talked about in magazines or on television. It made me feel insecure and nervous."
On being true to himself:
"It's really hard to find the right balance, and the only way to do it is to be the guy you are, and never forget where you come from."
On his relationship with his father:
" we're more like brothers than father and son. We hang out. I'll take him out with my buddies in LA or in Stockholm and it's never awkward or anything. He's 60 but he likes to party."
On everyone wanting him to fill roles similar to that of his ""True Blood" character:
"Everyone wants me to play air Northmen from true blood in a movie with a different name, basically... Strong, tough, else the male parts. That's fun to do, but you want to balance that out."
