Alexander Skarsgård interview from Swedish media

Posted by Lynnpd On July - 14 - 2010

Skarsgårdnews.com was kind enough to send along this scan of an interview with Alexander Skarsgård. They have had it translated and below is part of that translation:

After True Blood he no longer has to worry about paying his rent.

Alexander Skarsgård is hot. Suddenly he is “the handsome Swede” all over the place – TV, the big screen, in music videos. And he has “it”, that quality which can take him as far as possible. But the journey here hasn’t been an easy one, behind the 33 year old actor’s career lies a lot of hard work.

  • It was in 2004 that I started commuting between Sweden and USA, says Alexander. I was in a deadlock in Sweden. There were no jobs and the one’s that existed were no challenge at all, just to pay the rent. In USA the market is bigger and in 2007 I got my first big job in the mini-series “Generation Kill”. But I haven’t emigrated; I still work in Sweden when something interesting comes up.
  • You have 4 movies coming up next year which may be common in Hollywood, but at the same time you have a lead in a television series – How do you have the time?
  • It is intense, but it’s always fun to go to work so it doesn’t matter that I haven’t time for a vacation. We are a wonderful group who work on True Blood and there is a fantastic feeling on the set.
  • What does every day life look like for you now+
  • At the moment I’m in New York, but I’m soon returning to Los Angeles to start work on season 3 of True Blood. It takes between 6-7 months to record an entire season. When I’m not working on True Blood I try to find other interesting projects.

August 20th we will see a totally different side to him than we do in True Blood. That’s when Johan Kling’s (Darling) “Puss” will premiere. The role was a conscious move from his side to diversify.

  • I want a character to be a challenge. It is not much fun to play a character you’ve done 70 times before. At the moment I’m getting a lot of offers to play vampires, but I’m not interested in doing that.
  • Describe your role in Puss.
  • I play a guy from Stockholm who is interested in making a career, there’s a lot of surface and he is focused on the first impression. At the same time he’s afraid of conflicts and he keeps getting into situations which he tries to resolve by lying and by doing so he is drawn further down into a crappy situation.
  • It sounds like a fun character.
  • Yes, he’s completely spineless; it’s very fun to play him.

Sam Trammell joins “Guns, Girls and Gambling” cast

Posted by Lynnpd On July - 13 - 2010

Sam Trammell on the set of his new film Guns, Girls and Gambling

During the hiatus, many of the True Blood cast members are taking on other gigs, and Sam Trammell is no exception. Sam has joined the cast of indie crime thriller “Guns, Girls and Gambling,” opposite Dane Cook, Christian Slater, and Gary Oldman.

Trammel will star as a no-nonsense sheriff who works alongside a corrupt sheriff, played by Cook. The film, which just began production in Utah, involves the search for a priceless American Indian artifact stolen during a poker game at an Indian casino.

Michael Winnick, who helmed indie thriller “Shadow Puppets,” is directing from his own script. Freefall Films is producing and financing the project, which recently began shooting in Utah.

Trammell stars as bartender Sam Merlotte in HBO’s “True Blood” which was just renewed for a fourth season and recently completed filming “The Details” with Elizabeth Banks and Tobey Maguire. He received a Tony nomination for his lead role in the Broadway revival of Eugene O’Neill’s “Ah Wilderness.”

On June 24 Stephen Moyer signed all the prizes we are giving away in the “Stephen Moyer Kids Theatre Fundraiser”. He met with Lynnpd at her place, I was there via Skype and we chatted with him while he signed the merchandise. You can read the articles about our meeting here a here.

Even though Stephen was already running late for the interview with Rolling Stone that was scheduled after our meeting, he took the time to give a shout out to the fans and thank them for their support and donations to Brentwood Theatre to help bring the children to the Christmas show.

We put a clip together that we call “The making of the shout out video”. It took several takes to shoot the video, because somebody got the giggles and it wasn’t me, Lynn or Stephen. The child’s voice you hear is Lilac’s (Stephen’s daughter), she joined in as you can hear in the video.

Lighting credits: Stephen Moyer

Fan experience seeing Stephen Moyer on Regis and Kelly

Posted by Shadaliza On July - 13 - 2010

True Blood fan Lisa Marie had the thrill of attending the taping of Stephen Moyer’s appearance on the Regis and Kelly program yesterday on Prince Edward Island. She was kind enough to send some photos to us and to write about her experience below:


I had the amazing opportunity to be in the audience during Stephen Moyer’s appearance on Regis and Kelly, from Prince Edward island Canada! The segment was taped yesterday (July 12) and will air tomorrow (July 14).

The show was to begin at 12:30pm, and we arrived in line at 8am. There were only 30 people in front of us, so we knew we would get amazing seats!

After all the VIPs were let in, we ended up being DEAD center, and only 6 rows back!

My heart raced when they announced Stephen Moyer, and he proceeded on stage. This man is absolutely STUNNING in person, and his personality is amazing. It literally radiated across the crowd!

One of the first things Stephen did was laugh when he saw the HUGE crowd and said that it looked like Woodstock, and he should be “playing a guitar or something!”.

Out of all the interviews I had seen — Stephen’s was the best by far!! He was friendly and interacted with the crowd between commercial breaks.

During one commercial break I yelled “Sookie’s Mine!” in my best Bill impersonation voice. Well Stephen laughed, and laughed, so hard he was grabbing his stomach and said “You guys are amazing! .. but Sookie’s Mine!!” AND he said it in his Bill voice!!! I really wish I would have taped that!! But I didn’t think he would do it!!

He was asked about True Blood during the interview. He said that during the taping of this season he actually had quite the accident on the horse he rode (which was the scene when he was on horseback with the King of Mississippi). He had fallen off of the horse, and just so happened to have fallen on the ONLY cement piece on the whole set! He said he was quite hurt : (

He also said that we will find that True Blood will almost completely veer away from the novels this season, having more story lines going on, and really coming into “its own”.

When asked about his relationship with Anna Paquin, he said that they kept their relationship private for quite some time. Hiding it from the cast and crew, as they wanted to make sure it was ‘real’, and didn’t’ want to hurt the show because of it.

You could tell by his interview that he is truly in love with Anna, his face lit right up when talking about her!!

After his segment was over. He didn’t leave right away. I think I lost interest in everything else on stage, because I spent the whole time watching Stephen over by the fence, signing autographs for people who couldn’t get in to see the show, and doing photo ops!! You could see him smiling and talking to everyone! Such a great guy! I did want to run over, but since the show was taping, I would have gotten thrown out! Those were definitely some lucky fans!

It is wonderful to see how True Blood fans support various charities linked to our favorite show. One of the charities we continue to support here at The Vault is THE CHOROIDEREMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION. E.J. Scott, boyfriend of True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll, has CHOROIDEREMIA.

Last year E.J. collected many donations with his campaign to lose weight for charity. Now he is ready for the next step and will run his very first half-marathon on August 1st in Chicago and on October 10th the FULL Marathon…. BLINDFOLDED.

E.J. explains what Choroideremia is and why he will run blindfolded.

“Choroideremia is a degenerative and hereditary eye disease that attacks your peripheral vision and erodes it over time until total blindness. I have this disease and am now “legally blind”. I walk with the aid of a walking cane now and if a treatment or cure is not found I will go blind. When? Hard to say. It’s different for everyone.

What’s worse is that my 23 year old brother, Kevin also has this disease and my 5 year old nephew, Liam. There’s a 50/50 chance that my 1 year old nephew, Aidan, has it as well. My mother, sister and aunt are all carriers. And when my grandfather was alive he went blind from it in his 40′s.

WHY AM I RUNNING BLINDFOLDED? As a side effect of the disease my eyes are really sunlight sensitive. So much so that I need to be blindfolded for the Marathon. I will have a guide for both marathons. Each are cousins of mine and experienced runners.”

Last month E.J. received the Chris Farley Award for his charity work for the THE CHOROIDEREMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION. The Vault’s co-admin Lynnpd was there and spoke with Deborah and E.J. It was an emotional evening and both expressed their gratitude for the support of the True Blood fans. Read more about this event here.

What does it mean to you that True Blood Fans have stood up and supported the CRF?
Deborah: It’s shocking. I never thought in a million years that is what might come out of this, but it is one of the most touching and life changing things that has happened since I’ve started working on the show.
EJ: It’s always impressive to me when somebody cares enough or gives enough. My friend Johnny, his little girl who is like five or something just gave me $9 or $8 from her piggy bank as a donation and it trying to get some more. It’s awesome.


SUPPORT E.J. and help him to reach his goal of raising $100.000 this year for THE CHOROIDEREMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION.

You can make your donation through his blog:
http://ejcurechm.blogspot.com/

This link will go directly to the foundation and E.J. will be credited with the amount that you donate so he can keep track of the $100,000 he is trying to raise.

You can write a CHECK to The Choroideremia Research Foundation
