Alexander Skarsgard and Rutina Wesley: Faces to Watch in 2010

January 15, 2010 by  

Every year, Glamour Magazine puts up a list of actors, musicians, and fashion designers they think their readers should keep an on for the coming year. This year, that list (called “Faces to Watch 2010“) includes two of our very own: Alexander Skarsgard and Rutina Wesley.

The list is put next to a photo of each star, and gives some very generalized information on who each person on the list is, and what they’re doing that you should keep an eye out for. For Alexander, the website states that Alexander Skarsgard, (age: 33) has the star quality due to his lineage being the son of actor Stellan Skarsgård, thus being use to life in the entertainment industry. With his huge fan, base due in part to his role as the 1,000 year old viking vampire, Eric Northman, his video cameo in Lady GaGa’s controversial “Paparazzi” video, and his thriller “13” coming out later this year there will be lots of opportunity to see him on both the small and big screen.

The other True Blood member to catch the Glamour team’s attention is our very own, Rutina Wesley. Glamour states that Rutina Wesley (age: 25) has the making of star quality due to her big break as the sharp-tongued Tara Thornton in True Blood that has shined the spotlight on her.  Glamour says that we need to keep on eye on her as she will be one to watch in 2010.  While I would have personally liked to have seen the entire cast of True Blood on the list of “Faces to Watch 2010,” it’s nice to see at least some of our favorite True Blood actors get recognized for their talents!

    Nice article Isis. I love both of these actors. I think Rutina has a brilliant future in store for her. This is just the beginning. She is talented, smart, funny and beautiful.

    Alex has a great future for him as well. Also very talented, charming, sincere, charismatic and, of course, adorable and cute as a button.

    Congratulations to both of these fine actors.

    Thank you Isis for the wonderful article about Glamour’s Faces to watch in 2010. And of course all of us, Alexander fans are just ecstatic that our favorite vamp continues to garner more and more praise for his acting talent.

    148 days until Skargoodness and cast return to our favorite sleepy Louisiana town of Bon Temps in True Blood.

    We have been watching Alex’s face for quite a while! Hunky,talented and of course ,to some of us our favorite Vampire!

      I have to be honest. It’s not his face I’ve been watching.

    Wait, I thought Rutina was 28 or 29?

    • You know what, Dee? I have no idea! doesn’t have a date of birth, and neither does Wikipedia! I saw only a year on another site, and that one claims she was born in 1980… I think someone may be hiding Rutina’s age, though it doesn’t detract from her talent! But it is interesting, since I remember thinking she was 27 when I met her at Comic-Con last summer!
