As 1,000-year-old Eric Northman, a brooding vampire "sheriff," Skarsgard, real age 33, brings a commanding presence to the HBO hit. But that's not all he does. You can also catch him steaming up Lady GaGa's life in her "Paparazzi" video – before his untimely death, that is.
Cheers, Alex, here's to hunky immortality!
