Everything You Need To Know About Alexander Skarsgard
HBO’s True Blood is truly a modern-day sensation. Viewers who don’t particularly enjoy vampire stories or the tween Twilight movies tend to enjoy what the mature television series has to offer. Alexander Skarsgard, the actor who plays the popular Eric Northman on the show, was certainly in the right place at the right time as the series has really taken off since its premiere in 2008.
Although Alexander is best known for his role on True Blood, he has actually been in the acting business for quite a number of years. The Swedish-born actor was given his first role to him at just seven years old, in which he starred in a movie called Ake och hans varld. After that, he held leading roles in Swedish television shows until he decided to join the military at the age of 19.
In 1996, Alexander decided it was time to get back to his passion: acting. In 2004, he moved to Los Angeles to try to land more American television and film roles. At the same time, he still pursued Swedish film opportunities. Before the success of True Blood, Alexander was given a leading role in the HBO series Generation Kill. Between the two series, this Swedish actor was given dialect lessons in order to improve his American accent.
