Alexander Skarsgård for GQ Style Australia

True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård photographed by Steven Pan for GQ Style Australia.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actor had to share with GQ.
On comic-con
There was a motorcade from the hotel in through the garage and up into the building…[screams were] deafening.
On his experience in the military
We were out in the woods in the middle of the winter for 10 days. We didn’t really have any food or any sleep. It got to a point where people started to hallucinate and, you know, talk to their weapons. And cry. There was a moment where you’re, like, ‘I’m gonna die in five minutes.’ We were freezing cold and so tired and hungry. We came back to the barracks after 10 days and the captain said, ‘Now you’re gonna go out and run 20 miles [32 km] — with your backpacks.’ People f**king lost it. We thought we’d be out there for another 24 hours. People were dancing back to the barracks.
On his upbringing
Most of my dad’s friends were actors, directors, artists, musicians. It was artistic and lovely.
