Alexander Skarsgard: “I Think How He Ends Fits With How He’s Lived”

Alexander Skarsgard Discusses the End of HBO’s True Blood:
Considering how much blood and gore and unhappiness can occur during your average True Blood episode, the finale turned out to be surprising upbeat – in between the aforementioned blood and gore! But, arguably the happiest – and funniest – ending of all went to the crew at Fangtasia. Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and his progeny, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), ended up taking over Mr. Gus’s (Will Yun Lee) company and making their fortune selling New Blood.
But what did Alexander think of his character’s story?
I think how he ends fits with how he’s lived. He’s always had a clear mission and a clear agenda on his mind.
But while he may be happy with how Eric’s story ended, it didn’t mean he was happy with the show ending. With the conclusion of the final scene, Alexander had this to say:
It was unbelievably emotional. That show has been such a huge part of my life. I’ve met some really good friends on that set, and there is no doubt that they will remain close friends forever… The last scene I filmed, I was just trying to take it all in and I started crying.
So it wasn’t just Kristin Bauer van Straten who was crying about the demise of the show then.
