Not too long ago, in a conversation with The Sunday Times, Alexander Skarsgard revealed why he hasn’t played a serious role for a long time. According to him, the reason for this was that he turned out to be handsome. Well, you can’t argue here, the tall and fair-haired blond definitely could not remain out of the public’s attention. However, the fact that he was on the “list of sexy handsome men” played a cruel joke on him. It seems like the directors didn’t think it was possible that he could play a character with depth.
Everything changed after his role in the HBO limited series Generation Kill. However, even after that, the 45-year-old male celebrity had to try hard to get serious roles.
Skarsgard also paid special attention in an interview to the new film Northman in which he starred.
