Yesterday you could already the first part of the interview read that Alexander Skarsgard of “True Blood” was when he visited last Friday in Munich was closed. In the second part of the conversation you learn, including how you look at the role of Eric Northman, a 1000 year old vampire, and prepared for life’s blood to see if Alexander is true in.
What would you like to write your character into the script?
Alexander: The flashbacks to turn in “True Blood” makes a lot more fun. About a character that is over 1,000 years, there is so much to tell. He can move for example to France to Louis XIV, in the French Revolution, to Germany in the era of National Socialism, or to China 800 years ago. There are so many different ways. Flashback to turning is fun and they also serve the development of the figure.
Is it next to Alan Ball, other writers, directors and actors with whom you would like to work again?
Alexander: With one of them I am already working with Lars von Trier [for the film "Melancholia"]. This is a dream come true. It’s nice to play a different role in “True Blood”. Michael Haneke ["White Band"] would be great to work – there are many great directors.
How do you prepare for the role of the millennial vampire? Are there any personal experiences or feelings that can build on that one?
Alexander: You must respond to all aspects of his character and build on personal experience, otherwise you could not play the role. Before shooting began, I read the first five books of “True Blood” to the character and the world in which he lives, to get to know better. In addition I have looked at the classic vampire film “Nosferatu” with Max Schreck and the remake with Klaus Kinski. These figures differ, of course, Eric, but it was helpful to learn more about the history of vampire movies. The rest is imagination, “You sit there and have one million ideas. Then thou hast rejected 95 percent of it, because they are poor and in the end remain some ideas. It flows everything from the series I’ve seen to nature documentaries.
Do you have the opportunity to contribute creative ideas during the shoot?
Alexander: Absolutely! A director who does not allow their own ideas of the actors can not get the best out of them. If a director purports only the direction, he stifles creativity. As a director you want so that the actors are part of the creative process and contribute their own ideas. Then you have to give them the freedom to make some mistakes.
Can you actually see blood in real life without falling into a swoon?
Alexander: Yes, I am not so sensitive. My brother is studying medicine, I could not, for example. But I do not fall down when I see a drop of blood.
What do you use fake blood on the set of “True Blood”, a kind?
Alexander: Yes, it is a kind of corn syrup, very sticky and sweet. When it dries, it is almost like glue.
Do you have the same fake blood even when the recording of the Rolling Stone magazine used?
Alexander: No, that was something else. Not so thick and sticky. If you use the fake blood in “True Blood” is covered, you have to go with the clothes in the shower to taking them off. This is growing like legs – it hurts.
In the last part of the interview, you learn tomorrow syfy.de including how it was for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine to take off and why Alexander is happy to have not to his success as a child star for several years worked as an actor.
