Alexander Skarsgard Didn’t Have to Go Full Frontal on ‘True Blood,’ But He Chose To
The penultimate finale of the vampire series 'True Blood' had tongues across the internet wagging because one of the last scenes featured Alexander Skarsgard completely naked and (SPOILER!) on fire.
We like our men like we like Alexander Skarsgard, naked and screaming.
Turns out, however, that Skarsgard didn't have to be nude and was actually offered a sock to cover up his unmentionables.
Skarsgard's vampire co-star, Stephen Moyer, revealed to E!, "It was never written to have him full frontal. Alex doesn’t like wearing his 'sock' or the 'sack of destiny' as we call it. It’s the sack of destiny that covers everything."
"He doesn’t like wearing those so he had one in his room that day [but] he was the one who chose not to wear it," he said.
Moyer admitted that the camera crew tried various tricks to hide the goods from view, but were obviously very unsuccessful.
As for Moyer, he has no plans to follow in Skarsgard's naked footsteps for the show's last season, joking, "I'll save that from the crew."
