Sweden’s most entertaining import is no longer LEGOs thanks to the blond, fit, 6’4”-tall drink of blood that is Alexander Skarsgard, who is best known for playing bad-boy Viking vampire Eric Northman on HBO’s “True Blood” and as the eldest son of actor Stellan Skarsgard. After 1989’s “The Dog That Smiled” made him a star in Scandinavia, he quit acting to be a regular kid, joined the Royal Navy for 15 months (training he put to use in 2012’s “Battleship”) and studied English for six months at England’s Leeds Metropolitan University in 1996. In the late ‘90s, he rebooted his acting career with several Swedish films before playing Zoolander’s roommate in the 2001 Ben Stiller male-model comedy. His big break abroad wouldn’t come for seven more years when he was cast in the beloved HBO miniseries “Generation Kill,” which opened the coffin door to “True” stardom. He faked love for Lady Gaga in her “Paparazzi” video, but found the real thing with “Straw Dogs” costar Kate Bosworth from 2009 to 2011 after briefly dating Amanda Seyfried. He has most recently been seen paling around with “The East” costar Ellen Page although sources claim they are just friends.
