Here at E&SL Headquarters we would like to wish a great, big, awesome happy birthday to the one and only Mr Alexander Johan Hjalmar Skarsgård, who made his first appearance in the world on 25th August 1976, in Stockholm, Sweden.
Alex is currently locked away in a Canadian bunker filming his movie “Hidden” but we are pretty sure that knowing Alex he will find some way to get out and celebrate his big day!
Thanks to Alex for making Eric Northman such a kick-ass, sexy, amazingly amazing, season owning, scene stealing, viking vampire god!
And as we all know Alex has a very generous soul, and therefore he will want us all to share his birthday celebrations today!
It’s a double celebration for Alex as last night he became a big brother again, with his dad Stellan becoming dad to another cute and healthy Skarsgard boy! Congratulations to the whole family!
So make sure you have a great day yourselves Viking lovers, and try not to worry too much about tomorrow’s finale! Hopefully our main man is going to seriously kick some Authority ass!
And if, like us, you just can’t get enough of Alex and Eric, then make sure you join these Facebook pages, all fully paid up members of Team Viking, and run by very good friends of ours.
And if you are still stuck for something to pass the time until “Save Yourself” airs tomorrow night, you can always lay back with a tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough Ice Cream, re-watch your favorite True Blood episodes and search “Eric Northman” on Tumblr and Google all day. (believe me it’s great for stress relief!).
And if all else fails, just watch this on repeat:
