(Almost) Sunday Skars

August 13, 2011 in Alexander Skarsgard, Other Projects, Shameless Fangirling

I know it’s not Sunday yet, but THIS will not wait.

So you know what happens to your ovaries when you see a 6″4, blond hunk of Swedish manmeat just standing around on the corner….

Or how about when said hunk of Swedish manmeat is getting his fatherly on with a cute kid?

Well, that is happening to me RIGHT NOW.

Let Us Take a Moment….

Of pause from our vigorous discourse in order to….


I don’t even know where to look.

The pretty…it’s just…well, it’s completely overwhelming.

Show me more…!

Alexander Skarsgard – US Vogue, July 2011

June 12, 2011 in Alexander Skarsgard, Shameless Fangirling

So it’s still a little early for Sunday Skars – but what the hell.

I had no idea this one was coming, but it would appear that the GQMF-ness of the Awesome One extends to the pages of US Vogue. He appears in the July issue with Lara Stone.

From BDSM master to 20′s Romantic in the space of one month – you have to hand it to the man, he’s versatile.

I don’t know how much more of this I can take.

We’ll update with HQ pics when we can, but for now enjoy these scans from voguista tumblr.

Updated 15 June: Another two shots added to the gallery.

More Skarsporn from Interview

June 1, 2011 in Alexander Skarsgard, Shameless Fangirling

Courtesy of AskarsSwedishMeatballs, more photos done by Steven Klein of Alexander Skarsgard in Interview magazine have surfaced online.

Warning: you may want to have extra panties on hand before viewing. You’re about to go through a few pair.

A longer excerpt from interview done by Win Butler has also gone up, which you can read here at Interview Magazine’s website. Here’s a snippet:

BUTLER: [laughs] How burned out are you being a vampire? Or do you still love it?

SKARSGÅRD: No, I still love it. I think the writing on the show is so good that it keeps me interested. I was nervous when I first started True Blood because if you do a play or a movie, you know the complete arc of the character. You can see the end. But with a show like True Blood, you don’t know what’s going to happen. We’re shooting season four, and I don’t even know how it’s going to end because they write it as we’re shooting it. So I was nervous. I didn’t know how it would be to live with a character for years, because I’ve never experienced that before. What happens if you wake up after two years, and you’re like, “Oh, God. I’m over this guy”? But the writing is so good, and they keep surprising me. Plus, we only shoot for six or seven months out of the year, so there is time to try other things as well. That gives me a chance to not only go home and see my family, but also work on movies or do a play where I can dive into a different world and then come back to True Blood kind of rejuvenated.

BUTLER: How much longer are you shooting on this season?

SKARSGÅRD: We’ll be done at the end of June, early July. Then we’ll go on hiatus for probably the rest of the year.

BUTLER: Don’t spoil anything, because I still have about five episodes left to watch from the last season, but it’s incredible how the characters have evolved. Just when you think you kind of have a handle on them, the relationships among the characters get so fascinating.

SKARSGÅRD: What intrigues me is that people kind of naturally want to label or pigeonhole the characters. They want to make it easy for themselves to go, “All right. There’s the good guy, there’s the bad guy, there’s the girl. Okay, I get it now.” But what I like about our show is that when you first meet Eric, for example, you think, All right, this is going to be the villain, the bad guy. Then, slowly, when you get to know him, you realize there is more to the character than that. He’s not one-dimensional. Life isn’t one-dimensional. The world isn’t simply divided into good versus evil. I think we’re all capable of both. So any time the hero does something I’m not crazy about, or the bad guy does something I can relate to, I’ll find it more interesting.

Sunday Skars does Interview

May 29, 2011 in Alexander Skarsgard, Shameless Fangirling

I’ve had a fondness for this mag for many years – they always do something edgy and interesting with their subjects and it looks like Skars’ appearance in the next issue of Interview will be no exception.

Here’s a sneak peak of the June/July cover shot by Steven Klein, and accompanying interview by Win Butler. We will, of course, update the Skarsporn when a better image is available.

Any guesses on the source of their inspiration for this? Just sayin’.

The glove. Ummmm…I’m slightly dying here.

Here’s a little bite of the interview:

Skarsgård, whose turn as vampiric overlord Eric Northman has many fans hot and bothered, explained that for him, the roles that ARE interesting are those that represent a facet of his own personality.

“In a weird way, I always play myself, just through different mirrors,” he said. “If I read a script and I don’t connect with a character, if I can’t find the character on the page in my soul, then I’m not going to be able to do a good job.”

Read some more at NY Daily News – hopefully the full interview will be online soon.
