Alexander Skarsgård Reveals Tidbits About His Childhood to the TelegraphWhile giving an interview to the UK based Telegraph newspaper Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) revealed some interesting tidbits about his childhood in Sweden. His childhood wasn’t traditional and it isn’t that surprising given that he’s the son of famed actor Stellen Skarsgård who is most familiar to audiences for his recent and delightfully acted turn in the remake of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The oldest of six children, Alexander discribes his family as bohemian and hippie growing up:

“[We were] a very bohemian hippie family. I’d fall asleep under the table while people were partying until five in the morning. I loved it. I was probably stoned from second-hand smoke. I loved falling asleep hearing Mum and Dad laughing, having a good time.”

However that doesn’t mean that Mr. Skarsgård is all about art and being a free spirit. He can also appreciate the creepy things in life, like severed heads for example. One was found on a hiking trail near his Los Angeles home last year:

“That’s my favourite thing. A hike with a severed head…I love that stuff. Give me the dark stuff.”

As for his status as a bonified sex symbol, having been voted Sweden’s sexist man alive five times in a row, Alexander remains endearingly modest about the whole thing:

“I’m glad this didn’t happen when I was 17,” he said. “It would be too easy to believe the hype. If you’re too young, you think this defines me. This is who I really am.”

There is no doubt that Alexander is very handsome. But he also happens to be a top notch actor and very nice to his fans! Besides returning in True Blood season 5, you’ll find Alexander on the big screen in Battleship this May! Anyone going to see it? Tell me in the comments below!
