He’s featured on the cover of the June issue of GQ magazine and Alexander Skarsgard is spilling the beans on his “True Blood” gig.
Regarding his love scenes with Anna Paquin (who is married to costar Stephen Moyer), Alex shared, “It’s really clear to Steve and to everybody else what the deal is- which is that Anna is like a sister to me... Those love scenes take quite a bit of acting actually. A lot of acting.”
Skarsgard also noted that he really enjoyed moving to Los Angeles from his native country of Sweden.
“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*ck about my day, but I still like it. It’s difficult to get to know a Swede. But once you do, you’re in.”
Alex also chatted about his famous father, Stellan Skarsgard. “I don’t think I came to acting to compete with my father. But, you know, he wasn’t around as much as normal dads, and seeing his passion…Maybe it was a way to get his attention... I mean, if anything, we’re trying to take care of him. He’s over the hill.”
