True Blood has been going for quite a few years now and the stars of the show, Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have become very good friends. In fact, Anna and Stephen have become so close that they actually ended up getting married.
While Stephen and Anna’s character’s have had their fair share of love scenes, there have also been plenty involving Anna and Alexander too. So, how does performing a sex scene with a married woman, while her husband is in the room, affect an actors relationship?
Skarsgard tells The Daily Chili, “It's not a problem. We've worked together for five years and we're dear, dear friends. I love Anna and Stephen. We're all professionals, and they know it's a job. This is what we do. I've had talks with Stephen before, and he's very comfortable with it. [Laughs] He's not threatened.”
So how would Alexander feel if it was the other way round? Would he be so understanding? “Absolutely. My father [Stellan Skarsgard] is an actor, so I grew up in a family where he had to do that a lot with actresses, and my mother had to deal with it. That's just part of the nature of what we do. It looks very romantic sometimes when you watch movies, but when you shoot it on the day, it's not very sexy,” explained Skarsgard.
True Blood season six is set to premiere on HBO in June.
