Alexander Skarsgard Staying Put In NYC During Hurricane Irene

For those wondering what Alex plans to do when Hurricane Irene hits NYC later on tonight…we have some news to share with you!

Alexander Skarsgard Staying Put In NYC During Hurricane IreneAlex told USA Today, he’s staying put in his hotel. This is what he said;

True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard opted to keep a lunch date in the East Village to chat about his upcoming thriller, Straw Dogs (out Sept. 16).

As it turns out, this isn’t the first time he’s dealt with a natural disaster.

“There was a bigger earthquake when I was in Romania a couple years ago,” for work, Skarsgard said. “I was in my hotel room and I’m from Sweden – we don’t get earthquakes there. This was before I’d moved out to Los Angeles so I’d never experienced one before. You realize that Mother Earth is pretty powerful. You just can’t escape.” He was watching a movie in bed when the earth began to shake. “Everything started shaking, paintings fell off the walls,” he said. Though he and other guests were briefly evacuated from the hotel, “we were fine.”

So has he stocked up for Irene?

“No,” laughed the actor, who’s holed up in a NYC hotel while shooting a new film, What Maisie Knew. “You?” When his interviewer told him there was some wine on hand, he replied: “I’ve got some wine as well,” adding, “That’s all you need, right?”


If he’s not scared…I’m scared for him! Either he’s a ‘tough guy’ trying to be brave, or he has no fear at all!  He seems mildly unconcerned about this!

We also want to use this post to let all Eric and Sookie lovers on the US East Coast know that you’re in our thoughts and prayers! Stay safe and best of luck! And if any of you happen to see Alex…offer him the use of your shelter, food and whatever else you think he might appreciate! ;)

Please let us know how you are after the worst is over! And for those who’ve already experienced it (North and South Carolina), feel free to share your experience with us as well!
