I don’t go for really dressy woman. My family has a small cottage in the middle of nowhere in Sweden. It has no phone, TV or shower. You have to swim in the lake to wash. I love it. Taking a girl there is a good indicator of whether she’s right for me. A sense of humor is number one for sure.
As an actor, I believe the character has to be born with you, and come from within you. It has to be that organic. As human beings, we have all those characteristics within us. I don’t believe in good people and bad people. I think we are a combination of both.
There’s no real plan when I’m looking for a project or characters, it’s just a gut feeling and it starts with the material and the script: if I feel something when I read the script, if there’s a connection to a character, to the idea of the script and then obviously the circumstances, who’s going to direct it, who are the other actors.
I try to avoid blogs, or websites related to the show. As an actor, I don’t think it’s good to read everything that is written about True Blood. If you read a lot of positive things on the show, it would probably be bad for my ego. And negative criticism would get my attention but I would start doubting myself.
