When asked why Alan Ball cast Skarsgård as Eric Northman:
“Aside from the fact that he looks like a Viking god? Eric’s a tricky character. He’s done some really horrible things, but we still have to like him. Alex can make Eric ruthless but at the same time totally captivating and even sympathetic.”
