True Blood Cast Tease Alexander Skarsgard

May 21, 2010 by  

In a recent article on Ted Casablanca’s “The Awful Truth”, he talked about why the cast of HBO‘s True Blood was poking fun at one of the main characters, Eric, who is played by Alexander Skarsgard. Apparently at the Victoria Secret’s What is Sexy party, Ted was able to ask Alexander’s coworkers exactly why.

“We do, we tease him,” joked Skarsgård’s Blood costar Carrie Preston. “In the makeup trailer we’ll have all the magazines out and there will be photos of him with [a new girl] or some funny Q&A, so we have to razz him.”

Apparently, they tease him about being on covers of tabloid magazines with famously hot women. Alexander is known for being very private about his relationships, and even though he is reportedly dating Kate Bosworth, he nor she would make any comments regarding their relationship.

The author was also able to speak with Rutina Wesely, who is known for her role in True Blood as Tara Thornton, she was asked if she joins in the teasing,

“Well I let [Alex] alone! He’s a great, great guy. He gets teased enough!”

Well, whether by himself or on the arm of some Hollywood elite we “heart” Alex!

Waiting really does suck, check out the cast of HBO‘s True Blood when season 3 starts on June 13th.
