He told the outlet that he has the mental and physical skills to beat out HRH Prince Harry. Alexander is representing the US team while Harry is representing the UK:

“I’m pretty stubborn and motivated and I don’t give up easily. I’m very focused and we’re not going to lose!”

The race will benefit charities in the UK, US, Australia, and Canada who help soldiers who were wounded while serving their country. So although the race is a competition, it’s all for a good cause. Skarsgård, a former Swedish Marine, says good-naturedly that he’ll be excited to meet Prince Harry at the finish line where the US team will have finished first:

“I’m very excited to meet him. I’ll be with my U.S. teammates at the South Pole welcoming him. I’ll be happy to see him when he arrives. We will be there first though!”

Joking aside, Alexander expressed his admiration and respect for Prince Harry, who has been working with Walking with the Wounded for several years now:

“No, I’m going to give him a high five when I meet him. I hear he’s an amazing guy. I admire him for being involved with Walking with the Wounded for a couple of years and taking the time to help wounded soldiers. It’s going to be an honor to meet him.”

The race to the South Pole begins in November.
