He is best known for his roles as vampire Eric Northman on the HBO series True Blood, Meekus in Zoolander, the title character in The Legend of Tarzan, Brad Colbert in the HBO miniseries Generation Kill, and Perry Wright in the HBO series Big Little Lies, for which he won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries, or Television Film.A friend of his father, who was a director, gave Skarsgård his first film role when he was seven years old.
To prepare for this role, Skarsgård worked out for 7 months with trainer Magnus Lygdbäck.
The role of Brad Colbert was the closest to a "lead" in Generation Kill, and director Susanna White and executive producer David Simon at first disagreed about casting Skarsgård.
White wanted to cast him but Simon was not convinced he could pull off the American accent.
He enrolled to study English but admits he did not study much and "had a blast" instead.
After seven years away from acting, he started to consider it again.
In 2019, he played opposite Keira Knightley in The Aftermath, a film set in 1946 post-war Hamburg, where he portrays a sensitive German architect, forced to take in a British military couple in his stately home.
