Alexander Skarsgård True Blood Interview
So, you’re shooting Tarzan, True Blood is ending, and The Giver hits theaters, all at once.
Yeah. [Laughs] That’s why, unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the premiere in New York a couple of days ago. I really tried to make it over there. It would have been so much fun, but we’re shooting nonstop here, so the schedule is pretty hectic. I’m stuck in the jungle.
At least you’re not stuck wearing a loincloth, at least at first, because your version is already at the point where he’d gone back to civilization, and then he goes back to the jungle?
Exactly! Yeah. The movie begins in London in the late 1800s, and he’s already there, he’s been there for about eight years with Jane, and then he goes back to the Congo where he was born and raised with Jane, so at least in the beginning, he’s dressed as a British lord. And then a lot of things happen in Africa, obviously. But no loincloth, no. [Laughs]
For True Blood, did you not like to wear your equivalent of a loincloth? Your modesty pouch, your cock sock, your sack of destiny, or whatever you liked to call it.
Sack of destiny! [Chuckles]
Ah … I wear it sometimes. Obviously, if it’s a love scene with an actress, I’ll wear it, absolutely. But that scene was just me on a rooftop in Hollywood — that’s where we shot it, with a green screen. And it was a very hot day, so I didn’t need the sock. It was supposed to be, when the scene was written, Bucky [Brian Buckner], the showrunner, and I talked about potentially trying to go back to Sweden, to shoot it there. We were very excited about it, and then we realized that it might, you know, be a little bit expensive [laughs] to fly the crew over to Sweden just for that one short scene. Then we were going to shoot it in the Rocky Mountains instead, and then that didn’t happen, for many different reasons, so then we ended up shooting it on the parking structure on the lot where we shoot the show in downtown Hollywood. And it was in June, so it was like 100 degrees. Yeah. Not quite like the mountains of northern Sweden!
You told me before that you wanted to move to New York after True Blood was done. Is that still the plan?
Yeah! I’m actually looking at apartments in New York now. I’m in London for another three months for Tarzan, and then my plan is definitely to move to New York. I’m really excited about it. I don’t really have any plans in terms of what I want to do — movies, television, theater — but I’d love to do a play in New York. Anything that would be a break from what I’ve been doing, something different. I mean, my dad did Mamma Mia!, just after he had done a couple of dark indie films, and he had a really good time doing that. He loved it. He was like, “Fuck it! This is fun. This is different. There’s nothing wrong with fun. I’ll do it!” You know? It’s all about trying to find those projects where you get to enjoy yourself, because I think that’s when you create as well, when you’re genuinely excited about something. Then you’re not just doing it because it’s your job. After seven years on the show, where every break before was a hiatus from the show, there’s something quite exciting about not knowing what I’m going to do next. It’s a feeling I haven’t had in seven years, and I’m pretty excited about it.
