Alexander Skarsgard Talks Eric Season 5

By  |  1 Comment

True Blood season 5 is just getting underway in the UK, and SFX magazine has a new interview with Alexander Skarsgard to help promote it. Although they ask many of the same questions US interviewers asked in the early days of season 5, it’s interesting to read Skarsgard’s answers now that he has the entire season to use for context. Here’s an excerpt:

Might Eric and Sookie get back together this season? Because Eric seems to get over her quite quickly when we meet his sister…

“Well, the relationship with Nora is quite different. And with Sookie, he’s not over her, it’s more about that he punishes himself because he opened up and let her in. Last season even after the spell was gone, he said, ‘I still want you,’ and she said no! So he’s like, ‘You f**king idiot, this is what happens when you open up, this is the reason you have this wall around yourself emotionally, because when you let a human in, you get hurt!’ So even though there is still obviously a connection he’s very much… No.”

    Skarsgard did a great job of showing his anger and hurt toward Sookie. I know I picked up on it right away. And he pretty much confirms what I’ve said about Eric for a long time.
