37-year old Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard  is best known for his role as Eric Northman on hit HBO vampire show ‘True Blood’.

The actor has recently been on a trek to the South Pole and despite the freezing conditions he found a moment or two to snap a few photos of himself, naked on the toilet.

The photograph (seen below) which we’re sure you ladies and perhaps even some of you guys will like sees the actor stripped completely reading a book while doing his business.

Not only that though, he’s only sunglasses and a pair of furry boots.

This isn’t the first time Skarsgard has stripped off however. If you watch ‘True Blood’ then you’ll remember that in the season finale he stripped off naked on a sun lounger – though burst into flames shortly after.

Luckily, while in the South Pole, on a break from his Walking with the Wounded challenge he didn’t burst into flames, phew.

The image was shared on Instagram by team guide Inge Solheim and was captioned:

“#southpole -30C What are you reading Alex? The script for season 7 of #truebloodHBO ? 🙂 #alexanderskarsgard”

The challenge, which began as a race was cancelled due to bad weather conditions however all three teams taking part made it to the South Pole on the 13th of December.

When Skarsgard burst into flames on the season finale of ‘True Blood’ it left fans wondering whether or not his character would be returning.



It turns out however that the decision for him to go completely naked (seen above) on set was his choice.

Speaking to E! last year Stephen Moyer who also features on ‘True Blood’ said: “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. It’s the sack of destiny that covers everything.”

He continued: “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.”

‘True Blood’ is set to return for its seventh and final season in June.
