Happy Birthday, Alexander Skarsgard: 5 Things We Love About the 'True Blood' Star

eric northmanHAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEXANDER SKARSGARD! That's right:  Alexander Skarsgard was born on August 25 in 1976 -- which makes him 37 years old today! If only ASkars were here right now, I'd stick a candle in a piece of apple cake from IKEA and dance around wearing clogs! (That's what they do in Sweden on people's birthdays, right? Maybe not the clogs part. Where do people wear clogs again? Holland??) 

Anyway, point is, this is a very, very special day in the history of hot vampires, and, as such, we should of course be paying tribute to the man behind Eric Northman (who is NOT dead!! Just stop talking about it!). Here are 5 things we love about Alexander Skarsgard!
