New post for The Originals season 1
Make sure that you don’t miss out on the things in life, that are happening when you’re not thinking. Because believe you me, those, are the best things in life.
I really need Eric/Sherlock smut. Badly.
Actually, make that an Eric/Sherlock/Loki threesome.
How about no.
Alexander Skarsgård steps away from his vampire role and shows his softer side in ‘What Maisie Knew’
Alexander Skarsgård lies on the bed in a room at the Soho Grand Hotel, his boots kicked off to the side. “Grab a robe and join me!” he says with a laugh, when The Post showed up to interview him. “Welcome to my lair.” It sounds like a line his seductive vampire alter ego, Eric Northman, might say to Anna Paquin’s Sookie on their hit series “True Blood,” as he lures her into something sordid.
It’s no wonder the sexy 36-year-old Swede is the biggest thing to come out of “True Blood.” He’s got two movies in theaters now: “Disconnect” — the “Crash” for the digital age — and the emotionally riveting tale of a child in a torn family, “What Maisie Knew,” an updated version of the Henry James novel of the same name, which opened Friday. Later this month, he stars in “The East” alongside Ellen Page and Brit Marling, in a thriller about an anarchist group seeking revenge on corporations.
“I definitely don’t get enough sleep,” he says. “But it’s great. I’m genuinely so excited about all three films.”
In “What Maisie Knew,” Skarsgård sheds his bad-boy image to play Lincoln, a bartender who forms a strong bond with a little girl in need, Maisie.
Onata Aprile, the 7-year-old actress who plays Maisie and likes to draw “kites and people and things with nature in it,” grins from ear to ear at the mention of Skarsgård, whom she lovingly calls Alex. “He was really fun and funny,” she says, squirming in her seat. “I like to climb on Alex.”
Skarsgård confirms: “I was kind of like a tree trunk. When we’d walk down the street, she would use my arm as a branch.”
The directors were onboard with Skarsgård after meeting him. But it was his relationship with Onata that confirmed they were right in casting him. “It took us by surprise how good he was at bonding with Onata,” says McGehee. “From the first time they met, he was down on the floor at David’s apartment, coloring with her and making these little cutout people.”
“I mean she’s kind of in love with him in a way that’s really sweet,” laughs Siegel. “It’s a lovely, little 7-year-old crush.”

“the sexy 36-year-old Swede is the biggest thing to come out of “True Blood.”
So glad his hair is in his face again. I honestly like it better that way.
Yes, he’s lovely this way. But the hair is a more telling sign. He slicks it back when he’s feeling threatened. He gets behind his walls and in control, and that includes slicking back his hair. When he’s NOT in control, when his walls are down, his hair relaxes too. We saw this hair first in Sookie’s initial blood dream of Eric, when he had glorious sex hair, and for the first time Sookie saw some of the love and tenderness he usually hides. So that he spends so much time with “vulnerable” hair (LOL) in the promos is an excellent sign for this season. Eric has let down some of his emotional walls.
I have no idea what is going on in the first gif, but he clearly has Amnesia!Eric hair in the second pic. That is a good sign.
He is surrendering in the first .gif. To some SWAT team that we think are humans with super-weapons. And yes, the hair! :)
The hair…yes, yes. :)
That first gif makes me want to scream “NOT THE CHEST!!!!” Oh Eric! BE CAREFUL!
IDK, I like it better when it’s slicked back… he looks a little too boyish like this. I still miss season2 longer hair tbh. But good point about the emotional walls down, the hair is certainly a sign that he’s vulnerable.
The hair doesn’t remind me of AE but of Eric from Season 2 when he arrived at QSA mansion after flying there. OOooh, hopeful we get to see some more flying. Maybe with our favorite fairy.
