Ryan Kwanten: Fangbanger’s Bro

Ryan Kwanten: Fangbanger’s Bro

True Blood star Ryan Kwanten heats up the pages of VMAN‘s upcoming issue #18, on stands April 20th.

Here’s what the 33-year-old Aussie actor tells writer T. Cole Rachel:

On knowing a thing or two about jobs requiring shirtlessness before True Blood: “People back home knew me because I’d done a soap opera there for a few years. After that job ended, I came to the States for what was supposed to be a five-day holiday. I basically never left.”

On his character Jason Stackhouse being so far removed from his own personality: “I’m a pretty down-to-earth, private kind of guy. And this character is so impulsive, so lacking of any forethought or any kind of willpower. It’s great to be constantly required to throw all caution to the wind and play someone so wild.”

On season 3 of True Blood having lots of surprises: “They never rest on their laurels when it comes to figuring out new ways to shock people. (laughs) Every time we get a new script we all just sort of sit around in awe. It’s like, Are we really going to make this? Honestly, I’m just as shocked and surprised as everyone else who watches the show.”

FYI: Ryan is wearing a shirt and pants, both by Salvatore Ferragamo.

  • csaizon

    reminds me of Patrick Swayze

  • Epuni

    ^^ holy crap! at a quick glance i thought it was patrick swayze too!

  • He’s cute but he’s no Eric

    He’s great in his role as Jason. I can’t imagine anyone better for that role. But Alex Skarsgard is hands down the hottest of the hotties on that show. Although I have to admit that both Ryan and Alex are better looking than Stephen Moyer.

  • Stephen sucks

    @He’s cute but he’s no Eric: Agree. If you look closely at Stephen Moyer’s hands on the show you’ll see how feminine and gross they look. He’s also looking old and wrinkly. And don’t forget he’s British.

  • I love Sam on TB

    I like Sam (the dog) on True Blood. Although he does look older than Ryan and Alex. But he still looks younger than Stephen Moyer. I don’t think the British age very well. They have very thin skin which shows every little frown line.

  • Angelove

    I agree with csaizon. He rminds me of Patrick Swayze.

  • Erin O’Riordan

    I’m with #9. Ryan is seriously cute, but the real beauty of the show is Alexander. He can’t help it; he’s Swedish. Of course, this show is just overflowing with hotness…I like Stephen, too, and I really enjoyed Mechad (Eggs) in Season 2…

  • the truth
