"True Blood" actor Alexander Skarsgard has reportedly split from girlfriend of two years, Kate Bosworth. The "mutual" break-up comes at a time when Skarsgard's "True Blood" character is gaining recognition. The once villainous vampire, Eric, turns into a seemingly 'good' vampire after suffering from amnesia.
A source told Us Weekly that the split "happed a while ago" but the former couple has been hush-hush about it. Bosworth and Skarsgard will appear together in their upcoming film "Straw Dogs" which is scheduled to hit theaters in the fall.
"True Blood" stars real-life married couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. Paquin's character, Sookie Stackhouse, and Moyer's Bill Compton won't be spending much quality time together this season. Last season ended with Sookie and Bill apart and with Sookie thinking about Skarsgard's character.
And of Paquin's and Skarsgard's love scenes, the actor told GQ, "It's really clear to Steve [Moyer] and to everybody else what the deal is - which is that Anna is like a sister to me ... Those love scenes take quite a bit of acting, actually. A lot of acting."
Fun Facts About "True Blood"
