August’s Cover Boy: Alexander Skarsgard!

Ladies get ready for it, your most desired man of the month is yet another well deserving vampire…. Alexander Skarsgard!

 

Alexander Skarsgard was born on August 25, 1976 in Stockholm, Sweden, and is the eldest of six children. Although he comes from an acting background (his father is an actor) he quit for 7 years as he wasn’t too keen on the spotlight. At only 19 he decided to join the military for 18 months. After serving the military and having been enrolled at Leed’s University for 6 months, he chose to purse acting full-time (we thank him for the wise decision).

.. he also has great hair

The blonde haired, blue-eyed heartthrob has become a global sensation for his role on True Blood. As Eric Northman, he gets to show off an edgy, bad boy persona that every girl falls for. However, this Swedish native isn’t only a TV personality, he has also starred in numerous films such as Zoolander (his first acting job in Los Angeles), Straw Dogs, Melancholia, Battleship and The East, which has yet to be released.

Not only can he act and direct but he also speak’s three languages; English, French and Swedish (who doesn’t love a bilingual guy). Besides his impressive resume, he is also an avid supporter of several charities; International Fund for Animal Welfare, The Trevor Project and It Gets Better Project which focuses on troubled youth. Skarsgard also took part in a personal cause, “Battle of the Fangs,” with True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer. They each had to raise as much money as possible for their selected charities and the loser had to wear a T-shirt designed by the winner. Take a guess at who lost..

Alexander Skarsgard may have lost by a small sum they both managed to raise $70,000 together, proving that vampires work well in pairs. You have to admire their dedication and sense of humor.

You may also remember him from Lady Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi’ video.  He agreed to partake in the project because the director was a friend of his and needed a favour.

Rumor has it that Skarsgard is being considered for the lead role of Christian Grey for the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey. What are your thoughts on this? With his bad boy reputation in True Blood and rugged demeanor, he has the skills to rock anything that comes his way.

 He has most recently been selected as the new face of Calvin Klein’s cologne, “Encounter.” Check out that seductive glare..

He is just so masculine and handsome, no wonder the female population can’t get enough.. what’s not to love?!

Who will follow in this vamp’s footsteps? It’s all up to you so make sure to vote!
