Alexander Skarsgard grew up in Sweden, and he began acting when he was only 7. A friend of the family gave him a small role in a film and hit was something he really loved to do. By the time the 90s rolled around, he was starring in his own television show in Sweden, and that was just the beginning of his very long and successful career. Of course, at this time no one in the United States knew his name or what he did for a living, but it would not be long before he made his way to the states and began breaking hearts on television and in the movies. He did take time out of acting when he was younger so that he could do his time in national service for his country, and to go to college where he was having a great time more so than he was learning anything.
Despite the fact that Alexander Skarsgard had a number of roles in television and movies in Sweden and he United States, he wasn’t a household name or as famous as he is now until he was cast in a television show called True Blood in which he was a vampire. The show was among the most popular in the US and he was an instant success. From that point forward, he’s been cast in numerous films and roles that have only served to make him more famous and to increase his net worth substantially. He is now one of the most famous actors in the United States, and he is also one of the busiest working actors in Hollywood.
Personally, Alexander Skarsgard likes to keep his life as private as possible. He is not a fan of the red carpet or putting his person life on display for all to see. He has been in a relationship with a model and fashion expert by the name of Alexa Chung since 2015, but the two like to keep things as private as possible. He works very hard to do philanthropic work and has a number of charities he supports that do well around the world, including Walking with the Wounded. He is a man who has a lot to offer and plenty of time to do good in the world, and he is looking to become even more famous in the near future.
