BRINGING UP MAISIE: Alexander Skarsgård scooped up his tiny costar, the 7-year-old actress Onata Aprile, which only served to magnify his 6-foot, 4-inch frame, draped in a black Calvin Klein suit. The pair — setting off a frenzy of coos and aahs – then posed for photos at the Cinema Society, Tod’s & GQ-hosted screening of “What Maisie Knew” at the Landmark Sunshine Theater in New York on Thursday night. “It’s really fun to climb on him,” Aprile said, with her mother, Valentine, doting over her shoulder. Joanna Vanderham, Zosia Mamet, Erin Heatherton, Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones,” Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Russell Simmons mingled over popcorn before taking their seats.

Directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel, the film’s screenplay was adapted from the 1897 Henry James novella about the young daughter of a husband and wife undergoing a bitter divorce. Skarsgård plays the love interest of Julianne Moore, an aspiring and self-involved singer fresh off a divorce from her work-obsessed, art dealer husband.

“I just wanted to play a rock star,” Moore laughed. “It was really a challenge for me. It’s obviously not something I was used to.” She said she aimed to emulate Patti Smith, Courtney Love (“I watched a lot of Hole videos”) and Alison Mosshart, who provided original songs from her band, The Kills, for the movie.

“[Julianne] came to some gigs,” said Mosshart. “It was unnerving, actually.”

Skarsgård, who takes on a fatherly role to young Maisie in the film, said he is well-versed in dealing with children, despite having none of his own.

“I got 300 younger siblings,” he said. “I come from a very big family. I’m the oldest — we didn’t fight much. I would grab [my younger brother Gus] by his ears and lift him.”

The ‘True Blood’ stud steps away from his vampire role and shows his softer side in ‘What Maisie Knew’.

Alexander Skarsgård lies on the bed in a room at the Soho Grand Hotel, his boots kicked off to the side. “Grab a robe and join me!” he says with a laugh, when The Post showed up to interview him. “Welcome to my lair.” It sounds like a line his seductive vampire alter ego, Eric Northman, might say to Anna Paquin’s Sookie on their hit series “True Blood,” as he lures her into something sordid.

It’s no wonder the sexy 36-year-old Swede is the biggest thing to come out of “True Blood.” He’s got two movies in theaters now: “Disconnect” — the “Crash” for the digital age — and the emotionally riveting tale of a child in a torn family, “What Maisie Knew,” an updated version of the Henry James novel of the same name, which opened Friday. Later this month, he stars in “The East” alongside Ellen Page and Brit Marling, in a thriller about an anarchist group seeking revenge on corporations.

Skarsgård spent his six month hiatus from “True Blood” packing in film projects.

“I definitely don’t get enough sleep,” he says. “But it’s great. I’m genuinely so excited about all three films.”

Each movie seems hand-picked for an actor on the rise, one making a bid for a varied career. But don’t tell Skarsgård that.

“[It’s] not like, ‘Hey look at me I’m versatile!’ ” he says.

“[It’s] just creatively to stay true to myself.”

In “What Maisie Knew,” Skarsgård sheds his bad-boy image to play Lincoln, a bartender who forms a strong bond with a little girl in need, Maisie.

Onata Aprile, the 7-year-old actress who plays Maisie and likes to draw “kites and people and things with nature in it,” grins from ear to ear at the mention of Skarsgård, whom she lovingly calls Alex. “He was really fun and funny,” she says, squirming in her seat. “I like to climb on Alex.”
