How has Alexander Skarsgard (Eric) been handling Eric’s transformation from snarling badass to Sookie-snuggling softie? “I wanted to make sure that it was a side of Eric — not a new character,” he told HBO.
“The side of him that was hidden. He’s very innocent and naïve now, but I also thought it was very important not to lose the old Eric — the predator — and the element of danger there. You’ve got to feel that to make it interesting, I think, and it’s something I focused on. You definitely see how he can get very violent, especially in those moments where he’s protective of Sookie.”
Yeah, he was protecting her all over the house this week. Regarding their extensive lovin’, Alexander says we ain’t seen nothing yet. “My favorite scene is yet to come.”
