Could it be that all the supposed True Blood Season 6 spoilers about a major death this season aren't about Alexander Skarsgard's character at all? Say it IS so!

For us Truebies, the rumors that Eric Northman meets the true death on True Blood Season 6 have hit us hard. But the latest True Blood spoilers, coming from Alexander Skarsgard (who plays Eric), himself, may give us just a sliver of hope. As he said in an interview recently, someone new is brought into Eric’s life.

“Someone is introduced, a new character, into Eric’s life,” the 36-year-old Swede revealed. A possible love interest? “Maybe, maybe not,” Alexander teased, remaining non-committal. “But there’s someone new who’s suddenly part of his inner circle.”

It’s not much to go on, but we have to wonder why they would give us a new character who has so much to do with Eric if he’s not going to stick around beyond True Blood Season 6.

When asked directly whether Eric will meet the true death, Alexander used humor to deflect the question. Clever guy! As he joked, “I’m right here!”

One other thing the hunky actor, who called himself a “nomad,” even living in a friend’s garage for two years and couch-surfing beyond that, has actually planted roots in L.A.

“I’ve been a nomad for 10 years, traveling around. I lived in my friend’s garage for two years and I was couch-surfing for many years. I woke up one day and realized I basically had been living out of my suitcases for 10 years, and that it was probably time to grow up, get a house — and so I did that.”

Could it be so he will be closer to the True Blood set? We can dream!

What do you think will Eric Northman die this season?
