Not comfortable with being a celebrity at such an early age, Alexander decided to quit acting. During almost eight years he turned down every offer he got. Instead he studied Political Science, did his Military service in the Marines and intended to study at an school of architecture in Stockholm. But in 1997 his longing for acting grew too strong and he enrolled at Marymount Theatre School in New York City.
The interest for Alexander Skarsgard outside of Scandinavia has grown rapidly over the last few years, and he has recently signed with the agency Endeavor in Los Angeles and New York and with Markham & Froggatt, Britains most acclaimed agency, to represent him in Europe. He can already be seen in big international movies such as "Zoolander" "The Last Drop" and "Revelations".
Made his debut in Allan Edwalls award winning drama "Ake och hans varld" in 1983. Worked frequently as a child actor during the 80s and became a huge teenage star when he played "Jojo" in Rumle Hammerichs "Hunden som log" in 1989.
