Alexander Skarsgard arrived in NYC this week and checked out SoHo yesterday before dropping by Regis and Kelly studios this morning. He got a warm reception from the audience and fans who were waiting in line for hours to get a glimpse of their favorite True Blood star. Regis and Kelly had fun with Alex, probing him about his childhood acting career and stripping down on set, and they even surprised him by flashing a photo of Alex accepting his honorary degree from Leeds University, to which he fired back, "I look like a character from Harry Potter." Alex kept the conversation lighthearted when it came to shooting scenes in the buff, and Skarsgard exclaimed "let's get naked!" and quipped that in his native Sweden clothing is always optional. Fans got to see an awful lot of Alex on Sunday's True Blood, when things finally started heating up between Eric and Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin.
