Alexander Johan Hjalmar Skarsgard was born in Stockholm, Sweden on August 25, 1976. The country may not have larger population as compared to other nations but this was graced with bounty of great and astonishing actors and directors, and Alexander Skarsgard is one of them. He was the eldest son of Stellan Skarsgard, who is also a famous and handsome director and actor of his time. Unlike his father, Alexander Skarsgard did not really grow up in the international cinema’s glitzy world.
His acting career began at the age of eight. He continues working on films and television but when he reached the age of 16, he decided to stop because he believed that acting is not really the right career for him. He has been into many experiences and endeavors until he came back to acting. Since then he made various appearances in movies and TV such as “True Blood” and “Generation Kill.”
