Congratulations are in order for Alexander Skarsgard!
The Succession actor confirmed that he welcomed his first child with girlfriend Tuva Novotny to ET’s Rachel Smith at the season 4 premiere Monday evening at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.
“Thank you very much,” Skarsgard said with a smile when he was congratulated on his family’s new bundle of joy. Skarsgard and Novotny were spotted out in November with their baby.
He proudly showed off a stuffed animal he received at the premiere. “I got this on the red carpet,” the 46-year-old actor said, sharing a glimpse of the toy. “Thank you, thank you.”
On the critically-lauded HBO drama, Skarsgard plays Lukas Matsson, a savvy tech CEO whose streaming company, GoJo, is merging with Logan Roy’s Waystar Royco. The actor, who joined the series in season 3, had a difficult time articulating how Succession fans will react to the ending of the final episode but offered an intriguing tease.
While staying at an isolated island resort, James (Alexander Skarsgård) and Em (Cleopatra Coleman) are enjoying a perfect vacation of pristine beaches, exceptional staff, and soaking up the sun. But guided by the seductive and mysterious Gabi (Mia Goth), they venture outside the resort grounds and find themselves in a culture filled with violence, hedonism, and untold horror. A tragic accident leaves them facing a zero tolerance policy for crime: either you’ll be executed, or, if you’re rich enough to afford it, you can watch yourself die instead.
Screen Rant has an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the home release of Viking epic The Northman, starring Alexander Skarsgård.
Screen Rant is excited to exclusively present a behind-the-scenes clip from The Northman, which is seeing its digital release today before hitting shelves via the 4K Ultra HD Collector’s Edition, Blu-ray Collector’s Edition and DVD on June 7. The highly-acclaimed Focus Features production was directed by Robert Eggers (who previously made a name for himself with The Witch and The Lighthouse), as well as co-written by Eggers and Icelandic novelist Sjón.
Based on the Danish folktale that inspired Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Northman follows the tragic story of Prince Amleth (Alexander Skarsgård, Godzilla Vs. Kong) and the bloody revenge he seeks against his uncle Fjölnir (Claes Bang). After witnessing the murder of his father (Ethan Hawke) and kidnapping of his mother (Nicole Kidman), young Amleth (played by Oscar Novak) swears a vengeance that takes him years to finally complete.
Though The Northman opens with Amleth as a child, the film takes viewers through his transformation into a Viking berserker – and thus his transformation into Alexander Skarsgård – before he can see his mission through. In Screen Rant’s exclusive clip, Eggers shares that he strongly felt no actor but Skarsgård could take on the difficult role of Amleth. As fate would have it, the actor himself was also very interested in putting together a Viking film because he’d never seen a similar epic made. You can watch the exclusive Northman clip below:
In the full clip, Skarsgård explains how the light and exuberant innocence leave Amleth’s eyes as a youth and soon turn him into the hard and hateful antihero that thirsts for blood and will stop at nothing until he defeats Fjölnir. This is, of course, despite the fact that his uncle has already been disgraced and finds himself living in exile before Amleth ever steps in his path again.
Eggers describes Amleth as a protagonist from an Icelandic family saga, whose outlaw status slots very easily into that role. Without a doubt, Skarsgård was the perfect choice to play the grown-up version of the character, and he gave his all to bring such a complicated and fascinating story to life.
For the third season of Succession, HBO’s drama about a super-rich media family just trying to get by destroying each other over money—as one does—there’s some real extra star power in the forms of Academy Award winner Adrien Brody and Alexander Skarsgård.
When it premieres in October 17, Succession will be coming out of the dramatic season 2 finale. In the episode titled “This Is Not For Tears,” Jeremy Strong’s Kendall Roy pulled an unexpectedly sharklike move when rather than shouldering responsibility for all the bad things happening with the Roy family’s company Waystar Royco, he blamed his father Logan (Brian Cox).
Skarsgård plays an aggressive tech mogul, Lukas Matsson, who clearly knows how to ask the right questions, such as the moment in the trailer when he asks Kieran Culkin’s character, Roman Roy, when his father Logan will die.
