Alexander Skarsgard Talks True Blood And Getting Naked With ‘The guardian’ UK

Alexander Skarsgård is describing the challenge of wearing fangs: “I had to practise hard, they’re pretty big! In the beginning, it was difficult because you have a lisp. The fangs come out when you’re angry, excited, aroused, so it’s tough, when you want to look menacing…” Suddenly, he bares his teeth at me, momentarily assuming the trademark snarl and glacial stare of Eric Northman, the 1,000-year-old Viking vampire the Swedish actor plays in HBO’s hit TV series True Blood. “Again!” I want to shout, briefly transported into the show’s hedonistic world, “do it again.”

Thankfully I don’t. While friendly, Skarsgård oozes composure and professionalism, his sharp suit and slick hair befitting the London hotel where we’ve met. He’s almost as ice cool in person as his two most famous characters to date: Sergeant Brad “Iceman” Colbert in Generation Kill, the HBO mini-series about the US invasion of Iraq, and Eric in True Blood, currently into its second series on Channel 4.
