From Telegraph UK
Alexander Skarsgård, the star of HBO’s biggest hit since The Sopranos, talks about his sudden success and having a famous father.
Channel 4 is giving both True Blood and Generation Kill their first airings on terrestrial television on Wednesday, one straight after the other. It’s an odd juxtaposition, because apart from the fact that they are both made by the American cable company HBO, they could scarcely be more different – True Blood, a tale of vampires coming out of the closet in the Deep South, is a fantastical, at times hilarious chunk of modern gothic; Generation Kill, based on real events and people, is a painstakingly realistic seven-part depiction of life for an elite detachment of US Marines in the first phase of the Iraq War.
The one constant between them is the Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård, 33. He plays a 1,000-year-old Viking vampire in True Blood, and a laconic US marine sergeant in Generation Kill, but he steals the show in both.
Skarsgård’s True Blood character Eric Northman is ‘funny and confident but also lethal’, he says. Eric is more anti-hero than hero – a blood-sucker with an entrepreneurial bent who runs a nightclub, Fangtasia.
COLUMBUS — In 2006, when Tanya Wright first penned the script for a very personal film she hoped to one day make, she had never heard of Columbus.
But while in the city to meet a business partner, the native New Yorker and Los Angeles-based actress had what one might call a Possum Town epiphany.
"I was here, and we were talking about making a couple of movies," said Wright, who plays the character Kenya in the HBO series True Blood.
"I had this script I wrote several years ago that was very dear to my heart. We actually weren't going to make this one any time soon (but) I looked out the window one day and realized this is the perfect place to shoot this movie, just perfect in every way."
Butterfly Rising was Wright's directing debut and what she calls a passion project inspired by an experience in her own life.
"My brother, Barron Wright, died suddenly in 2005, and I was ... changing, wide and deep. My attraction to butterflies during this period of my life was strong. A butterfly - with its four stages: egg, caterpillar, cocoon and, finally, butterfly - is the result of a metamorphosis, the complete transformation."
