Filming on TARZAN Begins, Alexander Skarsgard Not Attending Comic Con

By  |  3 Comments

We were hoping that Alexander Skarsgard’s schedule would allow him to attend Comic Con for True Blood’s final appearance, but alas, it is not to be.

After wrapping his scenes for the final season of True Blood in May to accommodate pre-production needs for Tarzan, Alex has been in London preparing to film the 3-D action flick. Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures announced today that principal photography is now underway, meaning that Alex is in the thick of it as the titular character and will not be able to return to the States for Comic Con next week. 

Maybe Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer will break out the cardboard cutout again?

    I know they don’t film everything in order but since they just wrapped recently and Alex wrapped in may… does that mean he won’t make it all the way to the finale? or rather the Eric/Pam storyline will no longer make it back to Bon Temps… Hmm.. I was hoping that final look between Sookie and Eric was not a goodbye.

      We can’t say for sure, of course, but just because Alex wrapped filming earlier than everyone else does not necessarily mean Eric isn’t around for the full season. More than likely scheduling was altered to accommodate his commitment to Tarzan and he shot all of his remaining scenes over the course of a couple of weeks. I got the impression back in May that several other series regulars had a break from filming (check their Twitter/Instagram/Facebook accounts and see who took a short vacation or mentioned doing a lot of press). To me that indicates that production was adjusted to knock out all of Alex’s scenes, then they picked up with the rest of the cast again.
