Alexander Johan Hjalmar Skarsgård, simply known as Alexander Skarsgard, is a Swedish actor born on August 25, 1976 in Stockholm, Sweden. The son of actor Stellan Skarsgård, he experienced his first acting performance in big screen when he was seven years old and when Stellan’s friend, who is a director, gave him the opportunity to act on a film. When he was 18 years old, he joined the military and served for 18 months. Soon after, he came back to acting and attended at Marymount Manhattan College for a theater course. Meanwhile, he is known for his acting appearance in a number of films including Om Sara, Kill Your Darlings, Beyond the Pole, Melancholia, What Maisie Knew, and several others. He also became even more remarkable for playing the role Eric Northman on TV drama series True Blood.
Apparently, Alexander is endowed not only with a ruggedly handsome face but also with ripped and incredible physique. His secret? It’s not about grueling and intense workout regimen. It’s doing exercises in a relaxing approach. “We do have to be fit,” Alexander said in an interview. “There’s a lot of running around, but I don’t go to the gym six days a week or do any weird diets or anything like that.”
Speaking of diets, Alexander simply follows a high calorie, high protein diet. This kind of diet is important for bulking up and to gain more muscles.
