Alexander Skarsgård on “The Northman”

Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård returns to his Viking roots as Prince Amleth in the long-awaited drama, The Northman, where he takes on double duty as star and producer. Helmed by writer-director Robert Eggers (The Lighthouse), who co-wrote the script with longtime Bjork collaborator and Golden Globe nominee Sjon, this project is about the legend of Viking prince Amleth (the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Hamlet), who sets out to avenge his father’s murder.
