Hello everybody! After a long time without updates, this site is live again.
There’s a lot to catch up, but I’m currently working on behind the scenes to bring you all lost updates. To start, please, follow us on our new twitter account (since I don’t have access to the previous one) @ASkarsgardOrg.
I just wanted to let you know I have been very, very busy these past months with work and stuff happening outside my laptop, but now that I am back I will try and update the site more often. Currently I am working on bringing you new photos of Alexander and updates on his work. Bear with me, guys, by the end of the month this website will be 100% up to date, pinky promise!
Variety – Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgard and British thesp Bel Powley have come on board to star in coming-of-age drama “The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” which is currently shooting in San Francisco.
Caviar is the lead financier of the film with Cold Iron Pictures co-financing. Marielle Heller will direct from her own screenplay.
Bert Hamelinck and Madeline Samit of Caviar will produce along with Miranda Bailey of Cold Iron and Anne Carey of Archer Gray. Amanda Marshall of Cold Iron and Michael Sagol of Caviar will exec producers along with Jorma Taccone. UTA will handle domestic sales of the film. K5 International will handle foreign sales.
The screenplay, based on Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel of the same name, centers on a brutally honest teenage artist living in San Francisco in the 1970s as she attempts to navigate her way through an affair with her mother’s boyfriend.
Heller developed the project at the Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Labs.
Powley will play the title character in her American film debut. She has starred in the Royal Court Theatre’s West End production of “Tusk Tusk” along with Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” on Broadway and the recent production of “Jumpy” at the Royal Court Theatre.
Wiig was most recently seen in “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Skarsgard was most recently seen in “The East,” “What Maisie Knew” and “Disconnect.”

Dan Whitford Tells Us The Cool Story Of How A Whirlwind Bromance With Alexander Skarsgård Led To Him Starring In The New Cut Copy Video
PEDESTRIANTV – We just got off the phone with Cut Copy frontman Dan Whitford and amidst a far-reaching discussion about the making of their new album, Free Your Mind, the best night club they’ve ever been to, and what you say when Tiesto tries to collaborate with you, the Melbourne based singer-songwriter-musician told us about the serendipitous sequence of events which led to Eric Northman Alexander Skarsgård starring as a cult leader in their new “Free Your Mind” clip.
Here’s how Dan explains it: “Basically we did a show in Rio and Alex Skarsgård actually came down to the show and demanded to come backstage after. He wanted to see us because he wanted to tell us what a massive fan he was. He was telling us this story about how he was shooting a series called Generation Kill in the Kalahari Desert without a break for like four or five months and while he was there his one link back to home was listening to our second record “In Ghost Colours” on repeat. It just took him back to being in Stockholm and partying. The life he was missing out on was represented by that record. So he had this emotional attachment to that album and was a massive fan and he basically came backstage to tell us all this. We ended up hanging out and having this crazy night. The next day he introduced us to his family. He comes from a big family of actors, obviously his Dad’s a massive actor, who were all there with him at the same time. We somehow became best buddies just from hanging out in this 24 hour period and said “if we’re ever in the same place again let’s hang out”. We had such an awesome time.
So when we were thinking about making a video for this new record we thought we’d ask him and see if he would be interested in doing it. Like, no pressure, but if you were up for it that would be awesome. We sent him the song, he loved it and he said “I’m in, let’s make this happen”. It was a very organic thing. I guess like a lot of the stuff we’ve done it’s via people we know or through friends. It was just amazing in this case because that friend happened to be this big shot Hollywood actor who people are quite fanatical about. He’s got quite the set of abs on him. It’s funny, towards the end of the day when all the staff were packing up, the ones that were left was this group of like six or seven different make up girls and hair stylists who found a reason to stick around. Everywhere he went he had this entourage of girls following him around just being like, “Skkkkaaaarrrrsssgggaarrrdd””.
A long-haired and blond Alexander Skarsgård stars in a new music video for Cut Copy, a Australian electronic group’s latest single from its fifth studio album, “Free Your Mind”. The music video reminds me alot of his role as Eric Northman. Check out the video below!
