He has made great success in the U.S. television series “Generation Kill” and “True blood”.
Entertainment The blade was the only newspaper in Alexander Skarsgård made a lightning visit to Gotland to record the movie “Puss”.
In a plane over the Baltic Sea, he says what he thinks of American film, life in Hollywood and how he handles celebrity skapet.
It is pretty empty at Bunge airfield near Gotska Fårösund.
A bit away graze a few cows and an old Volkswagen is forgotten in a bunker-like flight hangar.
But not a single aircraft.
- I thought it would be here, “says Fredrik Hein, producer of St Paul film that makes” Puss “, a film that was delayed a year after the director Johan Kling burned out last autumn.
“Aged 25 years”
Alexander Skarsgård, 32, was one of one.
In the movie, which revolves around an amateur theater in Stockholm, he plays “Alex”, “a typical trendy media guy from Stockholm.”
- We have had so fucking funny. Johan is so beautiful, as an actor feel themselves safe, “says Alexander Skarsgård.
He has worked hard from early morning to late evening for three days. Later he could not be away from the recordings of the Hollywood movie “Straw Dogs” in Schreveport in Louisiana.
- It is not the finer parts of Louisiana, “says Alexander Skarsgård.
The trip to Gotland took one day.
- It is clear that it will be hard to travel in a day and come straight to the camera and be there three days in a row. I have aged 25 years the last few days but it has been worth, I am so glad that it was possible to piece together.
Now have a private plane leased to Alexander Skarsgård will come in time for director Rod Lurie in Louisiana.
And yes, after a few minutes you hear a “vrrrrooommm” and a Socata aircraft flying low over and then take the land.
On with the headphones and on the floor in the small cabin is a life jacket are close at hand. Alexander Skarsgård pepper pilot Björn Carlsson issues.
He would like to have licenses.
- I was really hungry this summer when I flew with a friend and landed on the Borg Landa on Öland. An incredibly nice way to travel.
Up to 6 000 feet. It will be a little extra luck on Ingmar Bergman’s Fårö. Director’s red Mercedes-jeep from 1980 is for sale is there.
- I have been there a part, he wanted to work with me, but I thought it seemed so damn hard, “says Alexander Skarsgård.
A few seconds later he adds:
- Um. I lie.
No, Ingmar Bergman, he may never work with.
“He is helgrym”
But Alexander Skarsgård career rolls now faster than ever. Celebrated in the HBO series “Generation Kill” and “True blood”. This fall begins the recordings of season three of the vampire series. Successful Alan Ball has directed and written the script.
- He is helgrym, incredibly creative and smart and open to ideas.
Movies such as “Dog trick” feels very far away. That he can thank the Swedish directors and rollsättare for which only gave him roles as a young Hunk and with it got him to try to take the chance in Hollywood.
- I think the Swedish directors is cowardly. We know what works and then run at it. As actors, it is suicide. That is why it gone so bad for American film, it is skimmed, warm, there is no language. My role situation at home was not interesting, “he says.
While he believes that a new bunch of directors is on the way up: Jesper Ganslandt, Tarik Saleh, Mikael Marcimain and not least Johan Kling.
“Waiting for my chance”
After hovering between Los Angeles and Stockholm for several years, Alexander Skarsgård now resident in the U.S.. His home is in the Hollywood Hills but in the autumn, he moved to Venice.
So very tips of the father Stellan says he does not have. To stand on their own feet have been important.
- I wanted to do my own thing and it was important that I ran into a few walls, I sat at the back and waited for my chance.
But now he noticed that the TV series has been pervasive. More and more people get into him in town and he has ended up on Perez Hilton celebrity blog.
- It is clear that it is fun, then I read nothing online. I do not want to read a lot of comments about how I act. It would sit in the skull.
As the success he has become increasingly restrictive with interviews.
- I do not want to be seen everywhere and think already that I am over exposed.
“Damn, Bajen lost”
Far below the level seen Stockholm, The Globe and Söderstadion.
- Damn! Bajen lost just down there. But Stockholm is so terribly beautiful, when you been away so long has tears in his eyes when you see it.
Landing on Barkaby airfield and a quick visit to the bushes.
Early the next morning sits Alexander Skarsgård in a flight to USA. The first he does in the taxi to Stockholm is to call My mother.
- Let me home and eat crayfish of Pop and meet the brothers and sisters and so, I am well down to Babylon to Medis and a beer with some friends. I never thought I would get to meet someone, this is a fantastic bonus.

Side Farm on …
- I do not have a girlfriend. I travel a lot and of course it can be difficult to have a relationship. But with “True blood” is I am based in Los Angeles where we are filming in six months. So it is clear that it would go to solve, but it’s good if you are in love first.
- There are some projects that I know that my manager and agent in LA trying to look in the autumn, but it is not safe. We are ready in mid-October with “Straw Dogs” and it depends on when the recordings of “True blood” come up, we may see, simply.
