True Blood Radio 196: Catching Up with Alexander Skarsgard {EXCLUSIVE}

By  |  16 Comments

This week on True Blood Radio, Alexander Skarsgard joins us in bed* for our annual chat catching up on what he’s doing during hiatus, talking about Eric and True Blood season 5, and what he’s looking forward to in season 6. It’s a delightful interview and we’re sure you’ll enjoy it.

*Sort of. Mel is on bedrest after sustaining injuries from a fall, but thanks to the miracle of modern technology, was able to conduct the interview from there.

    Well dang, I messed up Tina Majorino’s character name on “Veronica Mars”! She played MAC not MEG – d’oh! Sorry! Meg was on “Supernatural”, played by another actress entirely.

    Lovely interview ladies 🙂

    You can tell Alex loves Eric as much as the fans do!
    Can’t wait to see where he goes next season.

    I want to toot the Alexander Skarsgard horn! He is so lovely though, and it is always nice to listen to an interview with him, he obviously cares about his co-stars and audience/fans. I agree with you guys compltely that he is so humble and it is refreshing for a star to be so down to earth. Also I think I may have to subtly leave the Holiday Gift Guide open for my hubby when it comes out : ) Thank you girls as ever xxx

      Rebecca, if you have something in particular you think should be in the guide, feel free to let us know. Santa reads, I’m sure!

    Great Interview ladies – Learned lots of new needless information to satisfy my guilty pleasure. hehe. 😉
    What Maise Knew wil probably be a good flick- But I am more anxious to get a look at Disconnect- That Jason Bateman just rubs me that right way and throws me into a fleet of giggles… So him and A Skars should be great!
    …Oh, what to do now? Listen to it again… ? …. yep, settled.

      Glad we could give you something to do (over and over and …). 🙂

    I am so glad y’all posted this. It’s always fun to listen to Skarsgard talk. One reason his work is so interesting to watch is that he analyzes and considers all the angles on his characters. He plays all the layers, too. He is also able to explain this process which not all actors can do.

    Mel, I hope you feel all better so very soon. Falling down = no fun at all.

    Just stopped in and seen this… I hope you are doing better Mel… Get well soon… Unless Alex comes back to say hello, then I could see not getting out of bed… Pillow interviews are sometimes the best ones…LOL Now to listen to the show & catch up 🙂

    Thanks guys for keeping up with the ‘casts during the hiatus. It’s going to be soooo long till we get more Trueblood. It’s nice to get a taste now and then of even vaguely related things. 🙂 Hope you finish up your bed rest soon and feel better. Were pulling for you!!
