Alexander was born in Sweden and is the eldest son of famed actor, Stellan Skarsgård. In addition to his acting career, he attended university for medical school. He was raised in an average residential neighborhood near Stockholm, Sweden and began acting at eight years old. For most of his youth, his father was an acclaimed actor in Europe but had not yet achieved the international fame that came after his star turn in Breaking the Waves (1996). He continued work on films and television until he turned sixteen and decided acting was not the career for him. He stopped working as an actor, continuing his education instead.
At 19 years old, he entered compulsory military service and found himself confronting the question of life. So he studied at Leeds Metropolitan University and lived in New York for a time before returning to Sweden. He pursued acting there. Alongside his acting career, he also wrote screenplays, focusing on Swedish-language films with international appeal.
Then in 2001, he was chosen to play the lead role in Ben Stiller’s Zoolander (2001), which propelled him into stardom in that country. In 2011, he returned to Swedish film production with a made-for-TV version of ‘A Day in the Death of Joe Egg’ by Peter Kassovitz, ‘Copenhagen’ and ‘Robinson Crusoe’.
His first big break was with the miniseries Generation Kill (2008), which he spent seven months in the desert of Namibia. His portrayal of Marine Sgt. Brad “Iceman” Colbert astonished critics and audiences, alike. Westervelt wrote his scripts for several other films including True Blood, a vampire series that was adapted from the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
The conflict between vampires and humans has reached cult success and is highlighted in quality scripts, great acting, and the public’s obsession with their vampire genre. In addition to his work on True Blood, which began its third season in 2010, Alexander also has projects in the works including Straw Dogs remake, Melancholia remake, Battleship remake, and The East starring someone who won an academy award for directing Knight of Cups (2015), Zal Batmanglij.
He moved to Los Angeles in 2004, but he continued to work in Sweden. His break came when he was cast as US Marine Brad Colbert in Generation Kill. An adaptation of journalist Evan Wright’s book, the miniseries follows the 1st Recon Battalion of the United States Marine Corps during the early part of the Iraq War. Director Susanna White wanted to cast him, but executive producer David Simon was not convinced he could do a convincing American accent.
With four auditions and three cities, Sven admitted that just 36 hours before boarding a plane for Africa where filming took place – with an accent coach helping him – Skarsgard learned it was his role just 36 hours before departure. The crew spend seven months filming at a campsite in Namibia; shooting six days per week and Sven working with his dialect coach on the role’s accented American voice.
When asked about going from Bay Watch to True Blood, Alexander Skarsgård stated that he initially was reluctant to audition for the role, but was convinced to by Alan P. Ball after seeing his previous makings on Six Feet Under and American Beauty. He went on to say that he became a prominent actor in Hollywood playing Eric Northman in True Blood. In order to get into character, Skarsgård studied the work of actors Max Schreck and Bela Lugosi.
He also mentioned that playing Northman appealed to his preference for dark characters not simply diabolical or righteous.
In 2009, Skarsgård appeared in the music video for pop singer Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi”. His voice was also the one of Stefan in the 2009 animated film, Metropia. He also played a gay man named Terje who sets out to the North Pole. Later that year, Skarsgård appeared on a cover of Rolling Stone with his True Blood co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer.
In 2011, he starred in Melancholia, a film directed by Lars von Trier. He portrayed the newlywed alongside Kirsten Dunst as his wife. The film premiered at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and also co-starred his father. That same year, he appeared in Straw Dogs, a remake of 1971’s Straw Dogs, which was released 16 September 2011.
In 2012, Skarsgård had a lead role in Peter Berg’s film “Battleship”, playing opposite Taylor Kitsch and Rihanna. The film was poorly received by critics and had a weak box-office performance. In Scott McGehee and David Siegel’s film, “What Maisie Knew”, he played the title role opposite Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan. He also co-starred in Zal Batmanglij’s “The East”, playing opposite Brit Marling. That year, he portrayed an opportunistic lover in Francis Lee’s “The Diary of a Teenage Girl”. He made his Broadway debut in August 2015, alongside Heather Juergensen as These Boots Were Made for Walkin’
From the year 2017 to 2019, Skarsgård starred in the drama series Big Little Lies as Perry Wright, an abusive husband of Nicole Kidman’s character, Celeste. He described his character as violent due to internal conflicts around his insecurities about needing his wife.
The series earned universal acclaim; review by The Hollywood Reporter’s Daniel Fienberg found Skarsgård’s performance “utterly chilling.” Skarsgård won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie in 2017 for playing this role.
In 2018, he was cast in the science fiction film Mute as a silent bartender in a futuristic society and starred as secretive man alongside Alexander Skarsgård himself in the miniseries The Little Drummer Girl about political violence during Europe’s summer of ’69. Later that year he played as a sensitive German architect in The Aftermath, a film set in 1946 post-war Hamburg and will also play Canada Prime Minister Donald trump-like character in Long Shot.
Skarsgård starred in the film The Stand, based on Stephen King’s 1978 novel. “The Stand” ran on CBS All Access from December 2020 to February 2021. In 2021, Skarsgård starred in the films Godzilla vs. Kong and Succession, which received positive reviews and were commercially successful. He next starred as Amleth in the epic film The Northman in 2022. “The Northman” garnered favorable reviews from critics. Skarsgård is set to appear in the thriller movie Infinity Pool with Jennifer Garner and Emma Roberts.
Skarsgård is a fan of Hammarby Fotboll, a football club based in Stockholm, his birth city. In October 2010, he donated several autographed items for “Bajen Aid”, the club’s fundraising auction. In July 2011, he received an honorary degree from Leeds Metropolitan University, which he attended. He identifies as a feminist.
Skarsgård was the Ambassador for Team USA for a Walking With The Wounded fundraising event that helped wounded soldiers. He trekked to the South Pole, against Team UK (Prince Harry), and Team Canada/Australia (actor Dominic West).
After trekking for a few days, it was decided that the competition part would be cancelled because of dangerous terrain and weather conditions. So, the teams agreed to combine their efforts and continue together. They all reached the South Pole on December 13th 2013.
Alexander Skarsgard added 20 lbs. of muscle for his role in The Legend of Tarzan by working with physiologist Magnus Lygdbäck and developing a new exercise routine.
According to Lygdbäck, “He’s a skinny guy who likes to run. He doesn’t go to the gym normally. Through running, he’s got great lung capacity, but he doesn’t really lift. And that means I can make a bigger change once I start working with someone like him.”
He told Variety, “I never train my clients for more than an hour because what doesn’t happen in the first hour will not happen in the second hour at the gym. All you do after the first hour is just start to break down your body. So one hour a day, six days a week. While filming, five days a week.”
With a hybrid of plyometrics and bodybuilding exercises, Lygdbäck had Johnny do bear crawling, throwing and axe-throwing to prepare him for scenes where he would scale walls.
