Know Your Skars­gårds

GQ (Australia) - - BRIEF -

STELLAN SKARSGÅRD

Fa­ther to eight Skarsgård sib­lings, not only did he man­age to pro­duce four suc­cess­ful ac­tors, but his other chil­dren in­clude Eija (a model) and Sam (a doc­tor). His cin­e­matic out­put is just as im­pres­sive, with a wide range of film and TV cred­its to his name, span­ning some 50 years. BEST KNOWN FOR Theav­engers, Thor, good­will hunt­ing

ALEXAN­DER SKARSGÅRD

The el­dest and most fa­mous of the Skarsgård clan, Alex has achieved the most main­stream suc­cess, thanks to an early ap­pear­ance in Zoolan­der and a whole host of suc­cess­ful TV and film roles since. For what it’s worth, he’s also ap­par­ently dat­ing fash­ion It-girl Alexa Chung. BEST KNOWN FOR True­blood,big Lit­tle lies, the leg­end of tarzan

GUSTAF SKARSGÅRD

Recog­nis­able as Floki from TV se­ries Vik­ings, Gustaf has been a suc­cess­ful ac­tor in Swe­den for the best part of two decades. He also ap­peared in 2010 war epic The­way­back, di­rected by Aussie Peter Weir. BEST KNOWN FOR Vik­ings, The­way­back

VALTER SKARSGÅRD

At 21, he’s the youngest of those who act in the clan and has mostly been in lo­cal Swedish pro­duc­tions. Given the suc­cess of his fel­low, ridicu­lously tal­ented sib­lings, it’s prob­a­bly best to keep an eye on him. BEST KNOWN FOR Swedish TV se­ries Black­lake
