As Eric Northman, a millennium-old Viking vampire who favors silk robes and keeps busy with his work as both area sheriff and as a budding nightlife impresario, 34-year-old Swedish-born actor Alexander Skarsgård has been thrust to the center of the maelstrom. I went to this one park, I can’t remember the name of it, but they have that big drum session every Sunday. Well, we call it a mountain, but it’s really a hill. Every Sunday, they have kids who do sword-fighting reenactments.
Skarsgård’s Northman is by turns complex and mercurial, a pansexual opportunist—humans, vampires, men, women, one Estonian cardiologist-turned-pole dancer, and a fairy have each whet his appetite in turn—whose club, Fangtasia (complete with its underground restraint chamber), is a popular local pickup spot for interspecies trysts, and has become a metaphorical safe space for the fanged-and-forever-not-so-young. They dress up in medieval clothes and do battle with each other.
He is said to have been set up on a blind date with model Toni Garrn following the breakup.
star has split from his girlfriend of two years, Alexa Chung, and is already dating again!
Based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries books by Charlaine Harris, creator Alan Ball, and since debuting in 2008, has amassed an audience as ritualistic and rabid as the blood-sucking inhabitants of Bon Temps, the fictional town where much of the show’s supernatural happenings occur. But it’s also smart, self-aware, and novelistic in its storytelling, and watching the action unfold, one gets the sense that the fangoria might in fact be more than it seems, which it very well might be—vampiric even, as it bites from and nips at a variety of B-movie tropes and American historical themes. BUTLER: I kind of had the opposite culture shock, because I moved from Texas back to Montréal in the winter, so it was a pretty extreme transition, going to a French-speaking culture and a completely different season.
But the great strength of as a piece of work is while it encourages such second-level analysis, it is never overwhelmed by it; there’s always enough adrenaline, drama, skin, and blood to keep even the most demonic of beings who’ve been roaming various astral plains for centuries grounded in the graphic glory of the moment. SKARSGÅRD: I’ve only been to Montréal once, but I thought it was just a magical city.
The 40-year-old actor was spotted heading out and about with a friend on Monday (July 24) while walking down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Calif.
