Warning: This entry contains ***spoilers*** about season three of True Blood which some fans may prefer to avoid!
Truth be told, season two of True Blood was somewhat lacking in the Eric Northman department. Heartbreaking scenes with Godric (R.I.P.) aside, TB2 was ruled by Maryann Forrester and her creepy dalliances with Demetri. Thankfully, the show’s third run promises to feature more of Bon Temps’ sexiest vampire as he battles Bill (for Sookie’s heart), the Queen of Louisiana (over the V sales), and werewolves (more here). Itching for more info, Tube Talk caught up with Alexander Skarsgård for a quick bite.
“He’s intrigued by her, for sure. When he meets her for the first time, he knows there’s something different about her and that intrigues him. He doesn’t care too much for humans in general – he thinks they’re pathetic – but when he meets her, there’s something about her. He can’t put his finger on it, but he’s curious for sure.”
“No – he’s curious and he’s not gonna let Bill stop him because Bill’s just this little kid!”
“Bill? Oh yeah! Without a doubt.”
“I don’t know, man. He’s already got his Pam – even though that’s not a sexual thing, he’s got his partner. For sexual attraction, it’s all about Sookie.”
“I don’t know – we start filming next month and I haven’t seen the script yet! I don’t know what’s gonna happen. But it’s building up…”
“They have this little business on the side so they’ll definitely interact more I’m sure. Maybe they’ll get punished for that – I don’t know. I know less than all the fans on the blogs! I try to stay away from the fan sites because it’s not good for me to read that stuff – it’ll just freak me out!”
“No, I don’t think Eric will be very afraid.”
“It doesn’t really bother me that much. I’ve been naked in movies before so I don’t really care about it. I grew up in Sweden so it’s not a big issue.”
“I just trust Alan and the writers – they’re doing such a great job. I don’t know where I want him to go. When reading the scripts, I wanna continue to be surprised and discover different sides of Eric. Hopefully we’ll get to know him a little better.”
“I don’t know – 45 years?! I’m having a blast, so hopefully we’ll get to do it for a while. I love this show and my character.”
True Blood returns for its second season Friday, February 26 on FX in the UK.
