True Blood’s Alex Skarsgård Has Praise for Co-Stars

May 22, 2012

HBO’s Viking Vamp Dishes On Castmates:

Alexander Skarsgård as Eric NorthmanWith the return of True Blood for Season 5 on June 10, and the release of ‘Battleship’ into theaters on May 18, fans of Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) will have much to enjoy this summer.

Skarsgård’s film, ‘Battleship’, also marks the acting debut of singer Rhianna. Skarsgård shares several scenes with her and says he was not at all surprised at how easily she took to acting.

“I was honestly not surprised. Just like, watching her on stage, or her videos, you can tell [from] her energy and her charisma and personality, you know that she’s gonna be great in that part. I knew that and she really is.”

New to the cast of True Blood for Season 5, but making his return to HBO, is Chris Meloni (Oz, Law & Order: SVU). Skarsgård regards Meloni, who plays Vampire Authority member Roman, as a great addition to the cast.

“It wasn’t easy. His first day was basically him coming in. It was five pages of dialogue. Half of it was in Aramaic. That was like, ‘Welcome to the show, Chris.’ But he’s a trooper, a really amazing actor – obviously — and a great guy. We’ve had a lot of fun together on the show.”

It’s no secret that Skarsgård and True Blood co-star, Kristin Bauer Van Straten (Pamela DeBeaufort) have always held one another in very high regard.  A recent teaser video, released by HBO, gives us a peek at a scene that might indicate a rift between the Viking Vampire Eric Northman and his progeny, Pam. Does Eric release his child? Do they find a way to ‘kiss and make up’? What do you think?

Eric Northman Is One of TV’s Top Villains

September 5, 2009

truebloodblog_eric-hair-blood1Popwatch’s Mandi Beirly was wondering if Eric Northman was going to eat the children in last Sunday’s episode of True Blood. Alex Skarsgard does such a tremendous job with his role as Eric, some may wonder how much of the character is scripted, and how much of it is Alex‘s acting ability.   Several actions from Eric‘s scenes from episode eleven were pointed out from the way he leaned on his elbow as he listened to Sam ask for help, the wink he gave to Arlene’s kids, the way he fixed his hair after flying in to see Queen Sophie-Ann.  Before you start thinking that Mandi is giving Alex too much credit, she points out that Alex worked closely with the show’s costume designer for the hair foil scene in season two’s second episode.  It’s not doubted that Alex is doing an excellent job with his portrayal of vampire sheriff, Eric

Popwatch mentions that TV’s bad men (and women) tend to play second fiddle to big-screen evil and need to be celebrated.  So they are asking readers to let them know who are the best bads seen on the small screen.  Currently Eric seems the be the favorite bad guy on the screen right now.
