Alexander Skarsg?rd is the most famous one in the Skarsg?rd family right now, what with his surprise full frontal nudity in the season finale of True Blood, but you shouldn't forget the rest of the talented troupe — all seven of them. First, we have Stellan, the poppa of this strange Swedish Brady Bunch. Born in 1951, he's been in everything from weird musicals ? la Mamma Mia to the dark corners of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. With his ex-wife My, a doctor, he has six children, some who inherited the spotlight and some who took the medical route.
Alexander, the oldest, is best known for playing Eric on True Blood, though he impressed in the recent film The East. Next comes Gustaf, born in 1980, who is also an actor and can be seen in the television series Vikings. In 1982 Sam was born and instead of following the acting route, took after his mother instead, becoming a doctor. One of the youngest, Bill (b. 1990) is an actor and model, known for his role in Anna Karenina, Hemlock Grove, and his modeling for H&M. Eija, the only daughter, was born in 1992 and is so far sticking with modeling — though I'm predicting she'll make the switch too. The youngest, Valter, came along in 1995 and is already acting in a web series called Portkod 1321.

Stellan actually has two more sons (Ossian and Kolbjörn) with his current wife Megan Everett, but so far they're just enjoying being kids — though judging by their siblings, that won't last long. At the rate Stellan is going, he'll be able to cast an entire film with his kids alone.
