Video: Skarsgård on Eric in Season 5 of True Blood

The Actor Contemplates How Eric Should Be:

Skarsgård (Eric on True Blood) in Straw DogsMTV recently caught up with True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) at the screening for his latest film, Straw Dogs.  Skarsgård was looking dapper as always, while sporting a mini-bouffant, which suits him quite well! He was asked how he wants to see his character during Season 5, whether he’d like to see Eric still heartbroken due to Sookie breaking up with him, or not.  He replies that he doesn’t really know… he does, however, think that just because Eric is “back”, it doesn’t mean he’s the same old Eric:

 “Old Eric is back, but it’s not like the old Eric, because he still remembers the love with Sookie, and those moments — and that changed him.”

We learn that Alan Ball and the writers are already hard at work writing the scripts for Season 5 (squee!), and we already knew from Janina Gavankar here that filming begins in November (double squee!), so hopefully waiting will suck less this time around, what with all this excitement, and sure-to-come news and spoilers!

Check out the video, Truebies, and tell us how you’d like to see Eric next season!
