When asked about the paparazzi, he claimed, “It’s less now than when —“ before cutting himself off, likely in reference to the hordes of photographers that followed the duo everywhere they went. But before the topic could be breached further, Alex joked, “How many pictures can they get of me arriving at the airport in my baseball cap, looking down at the ground?”
However, his playful attitude isn’t just about the paparazzi — he feels the same about his career. Though his role as Eric Northman catapulted him into the spotlight, A. Skars doesn’t expect The Avengers to call on him anytime soon.
“I don’t think I’ll do one European movie and one American movie a year and then I’ll become an action hero,” he explained. “I don’t think in terms of where I want to be in three years. I want to find things that excite me.”
For now, he’ll just be battling his new diet, preparing for not one, but two films that he had to slim down for.
“I felt that I looked too healthy [for Hidden],” Alex said, adding that this his first diet ever. “I hate it. It’s horrible. I don’t eat much but salad. And I run every day.”
