Alexander Skarsgrd: Nationality, Ethnicity, Parents, Siblings

Alexander Skarsgard was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on August 25, 1976. His mother’s name is My Skarsgard, and his father’s name is Stellan Skarsgard, a Swedish actor who has acted in films such as The Hunt for Red October, Good Will Hunting, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Mamma Mia! With such a heritage, Alexander Skarsgard’s decision to pursue acting as a child seemed understandable. In 1984, at the age of seven, he made his cinematic debut in an adaptation of the popular children’s book Ake and his World.

After appearing in some minor films and television appearances as a child, Skarsgard earned a name for himself when his 1989 film The Dog That Smiled became a surprise hit, catapulting the 13-year-old Skarsgard to national fame. Unlike other teenage guys, Skarsgard was put off by the prospect of being famous. “The fame scared me,” he recalls. “When people stare at you and you read about yourself in newspapers at the age of 13, it all becomes extremely complicated. I reasoned that if this is what it’s like to be famous, I don’t want to be one of them.”

Education Details: University, School, Graduation

Skarsgard says he “did nothing” for the next seven years after quitting acting. After a long period of frolicking with his pals, he joined the Swedish marines’ anti-terrorist squad at the age of 19. “It was for national service,” he explains. “Although, when I did it, it was really simple to get out of. The majority of my buddies did not serve in the military. But they spent those 15 months drinking and smoking marijuana. I did it because I was 19 and grew up in central Stockholm. It’s just like any other European metropolis, and I grew up in the city. You don’t go outside if it’s raining. I was looking for a challenge. Alexander Skarsgrd  was intrigued. I wanted to see what going through all of this would do to me.”

He trained in hand-to-hand combat, small-squad battle tactics, and anti-sabotage attacks throughout his 15 months in the marines. “Most of the time, I despised it,” he says. “Many of the men I served with aspired to be James Bond, while I was a hippie. But it was beneficial to me.”

Following his military service, Skarsgard and a friend opted to attend Leeds Metropolitan University in England. He admits that after those difficult months in the marines, “I simply needed a break to be able to relax. My companion felt the same way. So we went there to study, but it was mostly just to hang out and have fun. We were living in a basement with no heating, sleeping in sleeping bags, and sharing a toilet with a drug dealer who was infatuated with the Queen of Sweden for some reason… It was a little frightening.” Skarsgard says he spent six months largely partying in Leeds before deciding to leave “These questions arose: what do I want to accomplish with my life? Acting came up again, and I decided to give it one more shot.”

The show was shot in Namibia, South Africa, and Mozambique for seven months. It was well-received, and Skarsgard got critical accolades for his portrayal.

When asked if his time in the Swedish marines prepared him for the role, Skarsgard responds, “My training was extremely comparable to what those soldiers went through in terms of specifics, level of respect, and how you handle your weapons and equipment. That experience in the Swedish marines was extremely beneficial to me… Having said that, it’s still the Swedish marines. We do not travel to Iraq. Nobody shoots at us… Our last conflict occurred 200 years ago.”
