Alexander Skarsgård Receives Honorary Doctorate from Leeds University

Posted on the 20 July 2011 by Thevault @The_Vault

True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård almost gave up acting after being a child actor because he didn’t like all of the attention.  However, while attending Leeds University in England, way before he was famous, his acting interest was rekindled.  Aren’t we all glad that Leeds gave him such inspiration to continue?  Congratulations to Alexander who has now received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater.

Yesterday, he returned to Leeds for this very special honor where he received the honorary doctorate degree from the prestigious institution, and looked thrilled at the gesture. And though he’s rich and famous now, it sounds like Alex still has fond memories of his university days.

Skarsgårdtold press, I had a blast. People were super-friendly and I had a great time. I still support Leeds United.”
