Alexander Skarsgard Talks True Blood With GQ (UK)

Alexander Skarsgård is big. Very big. But that much was apparent even before GQ.com meets all 6’4″ of him in the flesh at a central London hotel, because when we announced on Twitter we were set to interview him we received an astonishing number of replies – mostly, it has to be said, from would-be fangbangers. Zoolander aside, the towering Swede first came to our attention as Sergeant Brad “Iceman” Colbert in the exceptional Iraq war miniseries Generation Kill, adapted from Evan Wright’s book by The Wire alumni David Simon and Ed Burns. But it wasn’t until his turn as the broodingly menacing 1,000-year-old vampire sheriff Eric Northman in another HBO must-see, True Blood, that we really bit. A peripheral but compelling presence in season one, Eric comes to the fore with arguably the most satisfying character arc in season two, currently airing on Channel 4 ( season three has just finished in the States).

He’s since been shot by Annie Liebovitz for American fashion brand Hickey Freeman, crippled Lady Gaga in the video for “Paparazzi” and is now starring opposite Rihanna in upcoming big-budget blockbuster Battleship. “It’s pretty exciting. It’s a crazy production. I’ve never worked on anything of this magnitude. It’s so big. We’re shooting at Pearl Harbour on big ships. It’s a lot of fun.” Not least because he’s filming in Hawaii. “I went up to the North Shore and took a surf lesson and it was amazing. That’s definitely something I’m going to pick up. I’ve lived in California for for six years and I’ve never surfed.” Despite having been up since 4am (on account of jetlag rather than any nocturnal bloodsucking), he mainlined coffee and talked to us about fame, season four and why he “loves being naked”…

Alexander Skarsgård on…

Good vs evil

In season one, you don’t really get to know Eric. He’s in a couple of episodes and he’s in the background: the evil boss of Bill. Everyone was like, “You’re the villain.” To me, there was so much more to Eric than that. So it was great in season two to actually get a chance to show that people might be wrong when they label someone as good or bad. That’s what I find interesting not only in Eric but in any character I play. A character on screen that’s the “good guy” or the “bad guy”, they’re never interesting. There’s got to be an internal struggle, the duality is important to find. I had a lot of fun when you finally see this guy that is labelled as the bad guy can actually show compassion…

The books vs the series
We’re starting season four in two months. People are always like, “Tell us something, give us a spoiler.” And they think we’re lying when we say we don’t know but we honestly don’t! We get the scripts two weeks before we start shooting and then I just get episode one. While we’re shooting episode one, I get episode two. The show has got to take on a life of its own. There are tons of fans of the books out there, we want to entertain them, but if we did scene-by-scene or episode-by-episode following what happened in the books, then they wouldn’t be entertained. You want them to be on their toes! Plus for us working on the show we need to feel that the show is alive. It’s not like we know exactly what’s going to happen for the next seven years because things will change and things that might work great in the books but not on the set. Lafayette died in the first book but towards the end of season one everyone realised, “We can’t kill this character, he’s too good.” So they brought him back and he’s now one of the main characters.

Maggie Grace Will Play Irinia In ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’

EXCLUSIVE: Maggie Grace will play a new vampire threat to Kristen Stewart’s Bella in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.  Grace, who played Liam Neeson’s in-distress daughter in Taken, will play the role of Irina in the final installments of the Stephenie Meyer novel, which director Bill Condon is directing in two separate films.

Irina is a member of the Denali coven, considered cousins to the Cullen clan as the only other “vegetarian” vampire group. When Irina blames the Cullens for the death of her lover, her actions set in motion a terrifying chain of events. The first of two pictures will be released by Summit Entertainment on November 18, 2011, followed by the finale on November 16, 2012. Melissa Rosenberg is writing both scripts, and Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Meyer are producing. Grace just completed the Dwayne Johnson-starrer Faster for CBS Pictures and re-teamed with Taken producer Luc Besson in Lockout, the outer space saga that stars Guy Pearce as a wrongly convicted man offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter (Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates. Grace is also waiting to reprise in Taken 2. She is repped by UTA and Global Creative.

Alexander Skarsgard Raises Funds For SOS Children’s Villages

WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — SOS Children’s Villages, a global organization dedicated to the long-term care and prevention of orphaned and abandoned children, today announced that Alexander Skarsgard has helped raise over $35,000 for their programs.

Thanks to Mr. Skarsgård’s efforts, the majority of the funds were directly donated through the SOS web site.  The auction of two True Blood television scripts on eBay – each one personally annotated and autographed by Mr. Skarsgard – brought in additional funds.

The donations to SOS Children’s Villages were the culmination of a good-natured, fund raising competition between Mr. Skarsgård and fellow True Blood cast member Stephen Moyer. Mr. Moyer’s supporters raised funds for the Gulf Relief Foundation.

“We are so privileged to have Alexander Skarsgård as a supporter of SOS,” said Heather Paul, CEO of SOS Children’s Villages – USA. “His commitment to SOS has raised awareness of the plight of orphaned and abandoned children. Through encouraging his fans to donate to SOS, we have raised thousands of dollars to help many in need, and we are grateful to Alexander for his contributions.”

Mr. Skarsgård’s career in the United States has most recently included a highly popular role as Eric Northman on True Blood.  In addition to recently presenting at the Emmy Awards, Skarsgård is filming the movieBattleship, based on Hasbro’s popular board game, scheduled for release in 2012.

About SOS Children’s Villages

For 60 years, SOS Children’s Villages has been dedicated to the long-term care and prevention of orphaned and abandoned children. Through their Children’s Villages, Family Strengthening Programs, and other initiatives, SOS impacts the lives of over 1 million people each year. In 2009, SOS Children’s Villages received the Save the World Award. SOS has also received numerous honors including the Mother Teresa Gold Medal, the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, and the Vietnam Friendship Medal.
