True Blood fans are used to seeing the cast strip off on the show, but Alexander Skarsgard chose to go full frontal because he didn’t like the cover up options he was given.
In a very important scene in the series finale Alex is totally NAKED, but that wasn’t how the scriptwriters or producers planned things.
“It was never intended that way,” revealed Stephen Moyer to E! Entertainment at BAFTA LA Tea at the SLS Hotel.
“It was never written to have him full frontal. Alex doesn't like wearing his 'sock' or the 'sack of destiny' as we call it.”
Continues the vampire star, “It's the sack of destiny that covers everything. He doesn't like wearing those so he had one in his room that day [but] he was the one who chose not to wear it."
Good decision Alex.
Stephen also revealed that the crew did their best to preserve Alexander’s modesty with camera trickery and clever angles to hid any dangly bits but their attempts were unsuccessful.
Well done camera men. True Blood fans everywhere thank you!
