"These past six, seven years have been…it’s been an unbelievable journey. 

Being part of True Blood has meant…I don’t even know where to begin.  

It’s just changed my life.”

-Alexander Skarsgård

Alexander Skarsgård Talks True Blood, The Giver, Taylor Swift and Those Pesky Katie Holmes Rumors

Alexander Skarsgård is already missing True Blood.

The hit HBO series comes to an end tomorrow after seven seasons.

"It was the saddest moment of my career, for sure," Skarsgård told me from London (where he’s shooting Tarzan) about his last days on the set. "I was ready to move on creatively. I thought it was time, so I was sort of prepared for it, but I cried like a baby. It was so sad. The last couple of weeks leading up to my final scenes that I shot were extremely emotional. I’m already missing it."

However, he didn’t think of taking a memento home with him. “But then I was talking to Kristin Bauer van Straten a couple of weeks ago,” Skarsgård said. “I was already in London, because I wrapped before the other guys to start Tarzan, and she said that she took her fangs. I thought, ‘That would probably be fun to have,’ so she’s got my fangs waiting for me in L.A.”

Skarsgård can currently be seen in The Giver, director Phillip Noyce’s movie adaptation of the young adult best-seller about a world where everyone has been stripped of their emotions and memory.

He actually wasn’t familiar with the novel. “I went to school in Sweden and it’s not really part of the canon there, but I’ve always been since I was a teenager a fan of the Orwellian, dystopian genre,” Skarsgård said. “I read the script and I thought it was fascinating.”

No surprise, but playing Katie Holmes’ husband in the movie meant false tabloid speculation of a possible on-set romance. “I don’t even think about them,” Skarsgård said. “I don’t pay any attention to them. I don’t read those magazines. I don’t read the stuff online. I don’t even know 5 percent of what’s said about me out there.”

Besides, he was having way too much fun making The Giver to worry about gossip. Weekends and days off included dinner parties and jam sessions with co-stars Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites as well as Taylor Swift , who has a cameo in the movie.

"I wasn’t that familiar with Taylor’s music," Skarsgård said. "Obviously I knew she was a big pop star, but I got to knew her before knowing her music. She’s really awesome and down-to-earth and so much fun to be around. She has great energy and she’s a very talented actress."
