Man of the moment, Alexander Skarsgard, has revealed a few more juicy details about Eric Northman in True Blood Season 6, during an interview with entertainment.inquirer.net
Ok, here we go…………….
LOS ANGELES—“There’s a new… oh God, I’ve got to be careful here,” Alexander Skarsgård caught himself as he answered a question on what direction his vampire character Eric in “True Blood” is headed. But the actor revealed the “new” development in his 1,000-year-old fanged Viking sheriff’s life, anyway.
“Someone is introduced, a new character, into Eric’s life,” dished the 36-year-old Swede. A possible love interest? “Maybe, maybe not,” Alexander teased in this recent interview. “But there’s someone new who’s suddenly part of his inner circle.”
On the huge buzz that his beloved character will be killed in the sixth season, Alexander jested, “I’m right here!”
Then he said, “We’re wrapping up. We’re now [doing] the last two episodes of the season. I’m obviously not going to reveal what happens in those last two episodes but Eric has been busy this year because, up until now, the humans have been blood bags. Eric doesn’t really care about humans and they can’t really do anything. But this season, for the first time in a millennium, the humans can actually fight back. The governor of Louisiana has figured out a way to be a real threat and fight back. So it’s tough for Eric. It’s not as easy as it was before, dealing with the humans.”
Alexander’s announcement that he bought a house in LA, where he shoots “True Blood,” may debunk the rumors that Eric Northman will die. “I got a home last year for the first time in 10 years,” he said. “I’ve been a nomad for 10 years, traveling around. I lived in my friend’s garage for two years and I was couch-surfing for many years. I woke up one day and realized I basically had been living out of my suitcases for 10 years, and that it was probably time to grow up, get a house—and so I did that”
A new character in Eric’s life? The early betting seems to be on this being Willa, the Governor’s daughter , or perhaps his sister Nora will have a progeny of her own, but we will have to wait a further 2 weeks to see for sure. And of course Eric is still alive (un-dead) and kicking, so hopefully that will be the end of the Viking true death rumors (for this week anyway).

You may also be aware that the advanced review copies of the first 3 episodes of Season 6 have been now circulated and some detailed spoilers have been released on-line. We don’t feel that this blog is an appropriate place to discuss these, as (and I haven’t read them all as I like to have a few surprises) they are apparently VERY detailed. For those of you who really can’t wait you can check out the links on a thread in our forum or on our tumblr page.
Waiting sucks a little less now there are just 14 days to go!
