If there’s a downside to working so much, it’s a creeping sense of homesickness. Skarsgård was well into season five of True Blood when he realized he hadn’t been home to Sweden in eight months, and it crushed him. “I have a three-year-old brother,” he says. “A lot happens in the a three-year-old’s life in eight months. So I flew back, for a weekend.” 
Skarsgård feels more than the absence of Swedish family life. I miss walking around the streets of south Stockholm. There’s a bar called Babylon - a great little bar where I go see my favorite football team, Hammarby, play. Going to the pub and watching football was such a big part of my life when I was a teenager.” Every corner in town seems to job a memory, he says. “In Stockholm it’s like, “That’s the corner where that girl broke up with me!”
