THE DARK SIDE
Alexander, whom audiences last saw as a vicious and emotionless soldier in the Netflix thriller Hold the Dark, admits that menacing characters have been the most fun to play. But choosing a favorite between his two most iconic roles is no easy task. “Sophie’s choice! How to compare Eric Northman to Perry Wright?” cries the actor. “Eric is always special to me, but Perry is probably one of the best characters — like, most well-written characters, with so much depth — that I've ever gotten to play." I guess we have an answer!
“Eric was pure joy to play,” Alexander says of his True Blood character.
The actor starred as Nicole Kidman’s husband in Big Little Lies.
