Though sexy vampire Eric Northman can be found in the swamplands of Bon Temps, Louisiana, Alexander Skarsgard  the True Blood actor who plays Eric comes from an entirely different land.

Alexander is from Stockholm, Sweden, and often gives off an even more mysterious vibe than his vampy on-screen counterpart. But does Alex have an accent?

We’ve heard little to no accent in his interviews. If anything, the Bon Temps twang seems to have had a slight lingering effect.

Check out his interview with Regis and Kelly from August 2011 (below). Not only does the blood-sucking babe talk about his sex appeal and military background, but just look at him!

We don’t detect much of an accent. Do you? Comment below!
