Hello Askars! Now we are on countdown to season 6 and here the firsts teases published by HBO. Can’t wait to this season!
Here’s an interview Alex did for SFX from early October, where he talks a little bit about True Blood’s season 5.
Everybody loves Eric in True Blood which is why Sarah May tracked down the actor who plays him, Alexander Skarsgård, to talk about season five
This is the season of the Eric-Bill bromance. How does Eric feel about that?
“It’s weird. Eric doesn’t care about many people or vampires. He has a handful – Godric, Pam, Nora his sister, and Sookie – that he’s very loyal to, but not many, so it’s a discovery for Eric that he cares about Bill. He never hated Bill, he just thought: ‘Pah! Naïve young little vampire who believes in humanity still…’ So it’s weird for him when he’s suddenly protecting and saving Bill. He’ll say, ‘I’m not leaving without you.’ The discovery of, ‘I actually like this guy,’ it’s definitely a new feeling for Eric.”
After the premiere of True Blood’s season 5 at the Roma Fiction Fest, a Q&A was held. Here are the videos that seem to have been recorded by fans (although the image isn’t so good, the audio is fine). It’s split in two parts, which you can see below and under the cut. There’s also a different video of the same Q&A up on youtube, which can be found here.
Alex was in Rome earlier this week, to attend the Roma Fiction Fest in Italy with his True Blood co-stars Kristin Bauer and Valentina Cervi. A premiere for Season 5 was held, as well as a press conference. Check out a video below where he talks about his impressions of Italian fans, True Blood and much more.
HOT TOPIC: ALEXANDER SKARSGÅRD
You best know him for his role as the chillingly sexy vampire, Eric Northman, on HBO’s True Blood and for fronting Calvin Klein fragrance ads. The dashing Swedish actor, known for his tall stance (he’s 6 feet 4 inches) and blindingly blue eyes, attended an event for Calvin Klein Encounter cologne last night on the rooftop of the theater in NYC that houses the thrilling Sleep No More play. After sipping some bubbly, ELLE.com chatted with Skarsgård about those Fifty Shades of Grey rumors, playing Eric, and which city has the loveliest ladies.
Name: Alexander Skarsgård
Provence: Los Angeles, CA
Relationship status: Presumably single
On being featured in ELLE.com’s Hot Topic column. “I’m very honored. That’s what I’m here celebrating tonight. That’s the only reason I’m here. I heard rumors I’d be the hot guy of the week.”
What it feels like to be the face of Calvin Klein Encounter cologne. “I hadn’t really done campaigns before, but I felt like if I was ever going to do it, then this is the one. Calvin Klein is such a cool, classy house. It’s got a great creative team behind it—Fabien Baron and Steven Klein. I had worked with Lara Stone before and enjoyed it. So it felt like the stars aligned. It felt like the one. I was excited about it. I was flattered and honored; they had never worked with a male actor on a fragrance before.”
“I have no idea. I haven’t read a script, and I don’t think there’s a script out there. And I haven’t read the novels, so it’s difficult to say. The first thing you do is read the script, and then you feel if you’re good for it or not.”
Is it more fun to play “good” or “bad” Eric on True Blood? “I like both, I like the combination. I like that he has both of those sides, both of those Erics within, that’s what makes him real. He is not good or bad, he is capable of both. Even thought he’s a vampire, that’s how you can relate to him. We are all good and bad.”
Which city has the best-looking women? “Stockholm, Sweden. Just go, and you’ll know. And guys, as well. You’ll enjoy it.”
HBO Brazil has posted on youtube a new video with an interview Alex did during this year’s Comic-Con. Enjoy.
The season finale of True Blood has aired and season 5 is now over. If you haven’t seen it yet, I do not advise you to see the video below where Alan Ball and director Michael Lehman talk about it.
