  • All the characters I play are all inside of me in a way, and they're all different, the darkness, the lightness, whatever that is.

  • If you are with someone who is awesome and having a good time, you can sit at a bus station and still have fun.

    "Alexander Skarsgård Hearts Graphic Dude Scenes" by Ted Casablanca, April 27, 2010.
  • I don't fall often, but I fall hard. And when you fall hard, it takes a while to get up.

    Fall   Get Up   Hard  
  • When we were shooting in Shreveport, me and a couple of friends went down to Lafayette, because they had a big Zydeco music festival down there. We spent two days dancing to Zydeco music, eating fried alligator... It was one of the craziest festivals I've ever been to in my life, but I loved it.

    Interview with Win Butler, May 23, 2011.
  • Life isn't one-dimensional. The world isn't simply divided into good versus evil. I think we're all capable of both.

    Thinking   Evil   World  
    Interview with Win Butler, May 23, 2011.
  • Life is crazy. You travel and you're busy and there's so much going on that it's important to have the moments where you can breathe and you can just be present with the person or the people that you're there with.

  • I wasn't like a Hollywood child actor - "I'm five! I can sing, I can dance, I can act! I wanna be a star!"

    "Biography/ Personal Quotes".
  • When I'm on a plane, people know where I'm going before I even know where I'm going. People know where you had lunch yesterday, or who you had lunch with. So, trying to avoid sharing everything with everyone is my way of keeping something private in my life.

  • I like to dress up and put on a nice suit for a party or a special event; I do enjoy it, but on a daily basis I wear stuff that I feel comfortable in.

    Nice   Party   Special  
  • For me, creatively, I'd suffocate if I played the same thing, over and over again. I want challenges. I want to sit down with a director and be like, "I've never done this before, but it's going to be exciting. It's scary, but really thrilling, so let's do it!"

  • To turn off your phone when you go to your country house or you're on vacation for a few days is important. I turn off my phone and just check it once a day. I turn it on and, if it's an important message, I'll call back. Otherwise, it can wait.

  • If you're a great documentary filmmaker, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're a great narrative filmmaker. There are fantastic documentary filmmakers that can't direct actors. You don't have to do that in a documentary, if it's a real documentary.

    Real   Mean   Actors  
  • You can never connect on a deeper level if you idolise someone - you don't see the real person.

    Real   Levels   Deeper  
    "Alexander Skarsgård: Interview with a vampire". Interview with Aaron Hicklin, September 10, 2011.
  • I can't express how much admiration I have for women in general, who walk around in high heels, but, drag queens, oh my god.

  • What intrigues me is that people kind of naturally want to label or pigeonhole the characters. They want to make it easy for themselves to go, "All right. There's the good guy, there's the bad guy, there's the girl. Okay, I get it now." But life isn't one-dimensional. The world isn't simply divided into good versus evil. I think we're all capable of both. So any time the hero does something I'm not crazy about, or the bad guy does something I can relate to, I'll find it more interesting.

    Girl   Crazy   Hero  
    Interview with Win Butler, May 23, 2011.
  • I was nervous when I first started True Blood because if you do a play or a movie, you know the complete arc of the character. You can see the end. But with a show like True Blood, you don't know what's going to happen.

    Character   Blood   Play  
    Interview with Win Butler, May 23, 2011.
  • It was such an amazing experience to be able to spend nine days on a boat with these Greenpeace people. Some of them were scientists and some were crew members working on the ship. Just to hear their stories, like what drew them to Greenpeace in the first place and what they've been through. Every single second of the day they work to save the planet, which makes me as an actor feel quite insignificant.

    People   Nine   Ships  
  • We don't have paparazzi following you in Sweden.

  • My plan was never to be an actor like my father...

    "Alexander Skarsgård: Interview with a vampire". Interview with Aaron Hicklin, September 10, 2011.
  • A true artist, in my mind, is willing to fail sometimes, because if you're not brave enough to say yes and follow your gut, it's never going to be good.

    Artist   Bravery   Mind  
    "Alexander Skarsgård: Interview with a vampire". Interview with Aaron Hicklin, September 10, 2011.
  • I've been a member of Greenpeace since I was a teenager.

  • Swedes are such a civilised, perfect society - at least on the surface. There's a great safety net, a huge middle class, free education, free health care. People are very polite, they wait their turn. They're not too loud, they're not too quiet, but sometimes it's a little too perfect.

  • When you meet a director who wants to remake a movie, you have to ask, does he or she have an interesting vision and idea, something that intrigues you - is there a reason why we should do this?

  • As an actor, what's interesting is what's hidden away beneath the surface. You want to be like a duck on a pond - very calm on the surface but paddling away like crazy underneath.

  • I'm not interested in parts where they are looking for a good-looking guy. I want to be a weird little sidekick in a crazy comedy and then play like a dark drama or a thriller.

    Drama   Crazy   Dark  
  • Being followed is weird, that people want to discuss where I ate lunch or what I wear when I go to lunch... the private life is just gone.

    Lunch   People   Gone  
  • When I was four or five, I would organise my cars and my action figures. I needed some kind of structure, I think.

    Thinking   Car   Four  
  • I have to be careful because there is something destructive within me, I think, and I can have a tendency to just search for the kicks. I can't really get too close to someone who's too destructive, or too dark, because then I might go down the rabbit hole myself.

    Dark   Thinking   Rabbits  
  • Whether I'm interested [in something] or not, step one is read the script and figure out if a character is someone I'd want to explore or not.

  • I'm not very active on social media. I'm not on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram, or anything like that. But I think it's wonderful that they're out there. They're fantastic. I have a lot of siblings and friends that use it, and it's great for them. It's such a connected world.
