Alexander Skarsgard, whose professional acting debut was on the set of Åke and His World in 1984, is currently one of the top entertainers in the industry. The legendary actor is best known for his role in the HBO series True Blood, where he played the infamous villain and Viking vampire Eric Northman.
Who Is Alexander Skarsgard?
Alexander Johan Hjalmar Hjalmar Skarsgard is the eldest son of famous actor Stellan Skarsgard and doctor My Skarsgard. He was born on August 25, 1976, as one of six children in Stockholm, Sweden. Three of his younger brothers – Valter Skarsgard, Gustaf Skarsgard, and Bill Skarsgard – are also celebrated actors in the entertainment industry.

For a brief moment in 2012, Alexander was paired with Elizabeth Olsen, best known for her role as the Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Alexander Skarsgard was with Ellen Page for almost a year, from 2012 to 2013. This special relationship is of little importance, as Alexander was Ellen’s last relationship before she turned out to be gay.
Alexander’s name was also associated with the actress Alicia Vikander, but the duo put an end to all rumors of romantic involvement. Alicia Vikander is now married to the British heartthrob Michael Fassbender.
In 2013, the rumor circulated that Alexander had dated American pop star, Taylor Swift. Like many rumors about a relationship, this one was never confirmed or denied.
