Alexander Skarsgard’s Nude Scene: Did He Have a Body Double?
We’re not gonna lie, Alexander Skarsgard’s nude scene was probably the best part of the True Blood Season 6 finale. Sure, we’ve gotten scandalous glimpses of the sexy Swede before, but this was the first time A. Skars took it all off and went full-frontal.
So, that begs the question: Did Eric Northman’s portrayer enlist the help of a body double for the big reveal, or was that glorious human form all his own? Keep reading to find out, because the answer may surprise you!
According to showrunner Brian Buckner, everything viewers saw during the Aug.18 season ender was 100 percent Skarsgard.
When TV Guide chatted with Brian post-finale, the interviewer brought up the theory that many people thought a body double was used, and he was quick to deny it. “Nope! One day the tell-all will come out that that guy is as cool as Eric Northman. He doesn't sweat the small stuff,” Brian clarified.
While we’re glad Alex opted against using a body double, we’re surprised he was open to showing that much of himself.
