Alexander Skarsgård Discusses True Blood's Amnesia Eric
In HBO's weekly newsletter, Alexander Skarsgård gave an interview and discussed this season and the new direction his character has taken.

Skarsgård was asked how it was to be playing a whole new type of Eric and his relationship with Sookie. When asked about the reactions he has had to the Sookie/Eric romance, he said "I know that people have been talking about it - but I try to stay away from the blogs and fan sites." He added that he does receive feedback from fans in person, and that it "has been great this year."

Skarsgard is always sure to emphasize that he isn't playing a "new" Eric, but a side of Eric that has been in hiding for a 1000 years. He says that he "loves playing 'Amnesia Eric'", and that he has learned a lot this year about him.

Be sure to check out "True Blood" Sunday night at 9 p.m. on HBO.
