Alexander Skarsgard Covers 'Interview' June 2011

Alexander Skarsgard Covers 'Interview' June 2011

Alexander Skarsgard is seriously sexy on the cover of Interview magazine’s June 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 34-year-old True Blood actor had to share with Arcade Fire‘s Win Butler, who interviewed him for the mag:

On not wanting to only play Eric: “I do get a lot of scripts sent to me where they basically want me to play Eric from True Blood, but just a different name in a different movie. That’s not interesting to me. I don’t want to play a character that I’ve played for four years on a television show, change the name, and make him a zombie instead of a vampire.”

On connecting with the characters he plays: “In a weird way, I always play myself, just through different mirrors. If I read a script and I don’t connect with a character, if I can’t find the character on the page in my soul, then I’m not going to be able to do a good job.”

On what kinds of roles he craves: “There’s got to be something new, something fresh. I want to almost be intimidated when I embark on a journey. I wouldn’t say there’s a fear, but I do get slightly nervous in the beginning when that happens, and I like that feeling. That triggers me a lot.”

Beautiful viking king! Love the cover!

Wow, does not even look like him. If only he looked that great!

Geez….this guy AGAIN????

@Sophie: And yet, here you are, commenting.

Loved him when his hair was longer on TrueBlood and he and Pam levitated when they walked in first season.

Enjoyed him ..love watching him on screen…just wish I knew nothing about his personal life with KB…it distracts from his coolness.

Can’t stand this guy. He comes off as so self-centered and conceited in all his interviews.

Alex looks amazing! I love that they made him all wet. ROWR! That’s a serious stare down. I think he’s trying to melt the panties off ever girl who looks at this magazine. He’s doing a good job.

Alex Skarsgard is JJ lover!
he’s ALWAYS here!

@Camille: Works for me! LOL

@Willa: Oh, I didn’t know it was opposite day.

@Canuck:

LOL I think it will work for lots of folks, both men and women.

wow. Love this cover. Such a different approach compared to GQ. This one is almost surreal. But sexy as …

Wow! Awesome cover shot! He did just confirm my thoughts about how he plays the Eric character more to be like himself. I wouldn’t want to play the same character over and over, either, if I were an actor. I can see that he would enjoy the challenge of tackling new and complex characters. I hope that he has a good selection of parts to choose from!

@Camille: Fangtasia’s dungeon theme?
