Interview: Alexander Skarsgard-‘Hell yeah, I’ll do that.’

With the seemingly unstoppable True Blood still enjoying worldwide success, SciFiNow took the opportunity to talk about the show’s success with its star, Alexander Skarsgard. You can read the full interview below.

You’ve played a US Marine in Generation Kill, you’re starring in the remake of Straw Dogs, what was it that struck a chord with you in True Blood?

Initially it was Alan Ball. My agent called and asked if I’d like to work on a vampire series, and I was like, ‘What? What is that?’ They said it was Alan Ball, and I said okay.

The name attracted you then?

Oh definitely, I was a big fan of his work. And then when I met with Alan, he told me about the character, this 1000-year-old Viking vampire, and I was like ‘Hell yeah, I’ll do that.’
