Apologies to our visitors that I have been absent and missed posting some rather gorgeous new photos / interviews of Alexander at Berlin and Istanbul Film Festivals. I have recently had major surgery and am currently in a long recovery process! Partly due to this (there’s nothing like a serious illness to make you re-evaluate how you spend your life) and partly due to a loneliness I have felt for a while now in the Alex fandom, I have decided to move away from my role here updating skarsgardfans.com. I started working here around 18 months ago after a few very happy years working on a very successful blog called “ericandsookielovers”. My fellow bloggers there moved on to new interests when “True Blood” ended and I came here hoping to repeat the huge success we had there, with lots of comments and activity (I even had dreams of starting up a new Alex fan forum) but alas it wasn’t to be. If there is a really active Alex fan community still alive anywhere on-line I have failed to find it. I am not the site owner, only a humble contributor, but as I have been the only contributor for several months now I have no idea if the site will spring back to life in the future (with the release of Tarzan perhaps?). In my future I will be concentrating on the very active Facebook page I run supporting Alex alexskarsgardfans and hope to keep that updated with all the best new photos etc. and for now I will also be keeping the new Instagram page alexskarsgard_fans too as it has grown surprisingly quickly in a short space of time.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Barbara for letting me play with her site, I love to blog and will miss the opportunity to do so, and I want to thank each and every one of the several 100 regular visitors who have continued to check us out every single day. Like all other fans, I am hoping that 2016 will be a great year for Alexander and that Tarzan will be a massive worldwide success for him.
Take care everyone & happy skarsgazing!

The Berlin Film Festival have uploaded a short clip from Alexander’s movie War On Everyoneonto their festival website. The movie has it’s world premiere at the festival on February 12th.
Click on the nice, polite picture below to view the clip of bad cop, bad cop!
And here’s a description of the movie from Berlin……
Terry & Bob: tougher than Starsky & Hutch, funnier than Laurel & Hardy and better looking than Siegfried & Roy. These hard-to-impress buddy cops blackmail the entirety of New Mexico, plant cocaine on small-time hoods with bubble perms, consume it there and then, drink non-stop, ram their snazzy car into a wall, return to wife and kids (as Bob does, played by Michael Pena), marvel at ‘chicks with dicks’, or fall in love with the right sort of girl (as Terry does, played by Alexander Skarsgård). But a British Lord, especially a real one, will not allow himself to be pushed around in the manner to which these carefree, chaotic cops have become accustomed. Terry and Bob get more entangled in a web of blackmail, abduction and drugs than they could ever have imagined even in their wildest acid-nightmares … Irish director John Michael McDonagh will be familiar to Panorama audiences through his sarcastic portrait of small-town cops The Guard and his quick-witted drama about sexual abuse in the church, Calvary. His latest film is a bitter, hyperactive, tragicomic trip against a crazy backdrop of references to cop films and crime series, with great music and two male leads who really take it to the limit.
Bankside Films have released a new image and new promo poster from Alexander Skarsgard’s movie War On Everyone which has its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on February 12th. No word yet on if Alexander will be able to attend, he is currently in LA filming Big Little Lies. Cross your fingers he can make it!
Above is the first picture of Alexander and Nicole Kidman taken on the set of their HBO mini-series Big Little Lies. They play married couple (and parents of twin boys) Perry and Celeste Wright. Filming is taking place in LA and Pasadena.
Filming has already begun on Alexander Skarsgard’s latest HBO project Big Little Lies. Alexander has not arrived on set just yet, but all the leading ladies have been hard at work. Below are images of Nicole Kidman (who plays Alexander’s wife), Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodly, Laura Dern and Zoe Kravitz. (We will try to keep all posts on the blog spoiler free for those who haven’t read the book).
We also couldn’t resist showing you closes up of this little pair of cuties – Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti – who plays Alexander’s character’s (Perry Wright) twin sons.
