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 to 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.
When he came back to Sweden after two years in New York it didnt take him long to land his first part as a grown up (in Christina Olofssons "Happy End" 1999). Since then he has done over fifteen movies in Scandinavia and is today one of Swedens most beloved stage and screen actors.

His glory days is quite over because he hasn't been seen in any movie or tv-show here in a while. But he's still on like top-sexiest-men-lists and stuff like that and everyone knows who he is.
