Mr Alexander Skarsgård: Hollywood’s New Hero

The 6ft 4in Swede on taking on Tarzan, football and how he got an eight-pack

Mr Alexander Skarsgård stands on the rooftop of a Manhattan skyscraper, looks out onto the urban jungle below and thumps his chest. For a moment, it looks like the man who plays Tarzan might be about to let out the mythical character’s signature call of the wild. Turns out he’s just trying to clear a chesty cough. “Sorry, bad cold,” he croaks. The day before this interview, Mr Skarsgård had flown to LA and back within 24 hours – hence picking up the man-flu.

From up here, the 6ft 4in, 39-year-old Swede can just about see where he lives in Manhattan. After today’s shoot, he is due to accompany his girlfriend Ms Alexa Chung, the British model and It girl, to the CFDA Awards, a gala night on New York’s fashion calendar. In the morning, he’s off to Tokyo for a Tarzan premiere and then, if he can swing it, he’ll fly to France to see Sweden’s football team play in the European Championships.

Such is the life of a leading man. In The Legend of Tarzan, Mr Skarsgård heads up an all-star cast, with Ms Margot Robbie as an anything-but-plain Jane, Mr Samuel L Jackson as Tarzan’s unlikely sidekick and Mr Christoph Waltz doing a wonderful turn as the villain of the piece. The story begins with Mr Skarsgård playing John Clayton, Third Viscount Greystoke, living a humdrum aristocratic life in England with his wife Jane. Things take a decidedly less-genteel turn when they’re called back to the jungles of Africa, where he was raised by gorillas as a feral child called Tarzan.
