Today is Alexander Skarsgård's birthday.
Skarsgård is best known for his time on HBO's popular vampire series, True Blood. As Eric Northman, Skarsgard was a starring cast member and headlining character.
Skarsgård's other notable roles include Straw Dogs, What Maisie Knew, and this year's The Diary of a Teenage Girl. And he will anchor his first (hopeful) franchise next summer, as Tarzan in Warner Bros.' high-budget Tarzan remake.
Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Skarsgård turns 39 today. Happy Birthday, Alexander Skarsgård.
