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.”

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

    Enjoyed him 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.

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

    Toots Says:

    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!
