HBO Interviews Alexander Skarsgard

Alexander Skarsgard sat down with HBO to explore Eric’s sensitive side and his latest romp with Sookie!

HBO Interviews Alexander SkarsgardHBO: Fans have been dying for Eric and Sookie to hook up – what kinds of reactions have you hearing now that it’s finally happened?

Alexander: I know that people have been talking about it – but I try to stay away from the blogs and fansites. I’m a little scared… I do meet fans in person, though, and the feedback has been great this year. It seems that people are enjoying Eric’s arc, which is great because I had a blast shooting it. I love playing “Amnesia Eric”. It’s just a different side of him, and it’s always fun as an actor to dig deeper. You learn a lot, and I definitely have this year.

HBO: Is it difficult to play a person-within-a-person?

Alexander: I wanted to make sure that it was a side of Eric – not a new character. The side of him that was hidden. He’s very innocent and naïve now, but I also thought it was very important not to lose the old Eric – the predator – and the element of danger there. You’ve got to feel that to make it interesting, I think, and it’s something I focused on. You definitely see how he can get very violent, especially in those moments where he’s protective of Sookie.

HBO: In this week’s episode, “Cold Grey Light of Dawn,” there’s a drawn-out, multi-location love scene between Sookie and Eric. Was that the most involved one you’ve shot so far?

Alexander: It’s up there. I’ve done some stuff in other movies as well that’s pretty graphic… But these were definitely some pretty intense scenes. We were kind of all over the place. But my favorite scene is yet to come…
