On his dad, Stellan, who’s also an actor: “I don’t think I came to acting to compete with my father. But, you know, he wasn’t around as much as normal dads, and seeing his passion … Maybe it was a way to get his attention. I mean, if anything, we’re trying to take care of him. He’s over the hill.”
On the love scenes with Anna Paquin – who is married to their True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer: “t’s really clear to Steve and to everybody else what the deal is—which is that Anna is like a sister to me… Those love scenes take quite a bit of acting, actually. A lot of acting.”
On life in L.A. and the entertainment industry: “Hollywood can be like kids playing marbles on the schoolyard. Everybody wants the shiny marble until one kid says he doesn’t. Then nobody will touch it. So it’s important that I make good decisions now.”
What’s next for Alexander? Well he will be seen in Melancholia, set to premiere in Cannes acting alongside his father and then the remake of the classic Sam Peckinpah movie Straw Dogs and next year in Battleship board-game-based movie.
