Those who follow Alexander Skarsgård from his child actor days must clearly know the Swedish actor’s career graph has been something like a sine wave. Born and brought up within an actors clan, the most obvious choice for Skarsgård was to pick up acting as a profession. But, he wavered a little whether to pick up acting or architecture. As all of us who love him know, he couldn’t resist the call of cinema, and here he is, with some stunning performances in his credit.
We loved his Eric Northman, the 1000-year-old Viking vampire in the cult movie ‘True Blood’ in 2008. The movie catapulted that catapulted Skarsgård to instant stardom and an avalanche of good and bad offers. Until ‘True Blood’ happened his career was in a trough with moderate success like Meekus in ‘Zoolander’ and the HBO miniseries ‘Generation Kill.’ Today, Skarsgard is an icon of pop culture, an eight-packed hulk who can shoulder characters like ‘Tarzan’ and one the front-runners for the top alpha male status in Hollywood.At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Alexander Skarsgård movie and tv show?
