But cool Alexander talked her through it and put her at ease with his nonchalant attitude.
“I’ve never done nudity before, so I was really, really worried at how you’re supposed to handle yourself, and Alexander helped me so much,” Alam, 27, told reporters June 8 at “True Blood’s” Season 3 premiere in L.A.
Natasha adds: “He just walked in the room, dropped his robe and he was all out there, no sock, nothing and I was like, ‘Oh, OK, so [it’s] that easy? I can do it too.”
What a guy!
The Russian-born Alam plays Yvetta, a new dancer at Eric Northman’s ( Skarsgård) club Fangtasia on the third season of the hit HBO series.
“When we shot [my nude scene with Alexander], I just had a baby,” recalls Natasha. “I actually am about 10 pounds overweight in that scene, but I love my boobs! I was still breast feeding so it looked great.”
The hunky Skarsgård, who has been voted the Sexiest Man in Sweden for the past five years, recently revealed he’ll be showcasing his fit 6’4″ physique in the nude a lot this season.
The boyishly handsome Alexander, who plays a 1,000-year-old Viking vampire, says Eric’s appeal is partly due to his predatory hyper-masculine personality.
“Alex is not shy about getting naked at all,” co-star Carrie Preston says.
“I’m a Scandinavian guy, we love to be naked,” Alex says. “Nudity is great.”
The third season of “True Blood” premieres on HBO June 13
