Alexander Skarsgård stars as vampire sheriff, Eric Northman in the HBO series True Blood. The show has been popular since the first season but Alexander brings a whole new element and reason to tune in.
While the show has always been just interesting enough for you to watch every week, there have always been a few little quirks that have also make it difficult to enjoy. Those issues are still there but are hardly noticeable in comparison to the entertainment Alexander provides.
The show’s leading lady Anna Paquin plays Sookie Stackhouse. She is a feisty, mind reading, vampire loving, southern girl. The main beef with Anna is her horrible accent. It comes off very much like an accent and makes it difficult to take the character seriously.
Sookie’s love interest on the show is Bill, played by Anna’s real life fiancé, Stephen Moyer. Bill is supposed to be a vampire who prefers synthetic blood over the human kind. That’s a great concept but unfortunately, doesn’t make for good TV. Also, shockingly the couple does not have that great of an on screen chemistry.
Enter Alexander, and boy does he know how to play the character of Eric. Eric is the typical vampire that girls love to lust after. He is definitely no saint but there is some level of goodness there. It hasn’t been determined how much but then that’s half the fun. He is tall, good looking and devilishly charming.
This season is hinting at the possibility of a love triangle between Bill, Sookie and Eric. The fans are anxiously waiting for some Eric and Sookie lovin’. In the human world it is said that “good guys finish last”. All we can do is hope that in the vampire world that’s a guarantee.
