It depends on if you want to believe in conspiracy theories. There have been rumors that TPTB favored other cast members. Is it true? Is it false? We’ll probably never know for sure.
I personally feel like they could have used Alex more on the show but they didn’t. It remains rather bizarre that they limited the screentime of one of the most popular actors on the show for years.
Long after it’s gone, True Blood will be remembered as the show that gave us Alexander Skarsgård, and for that, we will always be grateful.
Even though True Blood has been terrible it brought Alexander Skarsgard into the mainstream. He remains the breakout star of this show and has a bright future ahead of him.
He’s the only actor that could have brought Eric Northman to life. No matter what went on behind the scenes they couldn’t steal his shine even though they tried.
