Alexander Skarsgård has revealed that his character is out for revenge in True Blood's third season.
The 33-year-old actor, who plays vampire Eric Northman on the HBO series, told Entertainment Weekly that the third run will also see his alter ego become more and more intrigued by Anna Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse.
"He will continue to explore the whole Sookie thing and what that's all about," he said. "He's trying to figure out what’s different about her. He's intrigued by that.
"And in addition to that, there's something that happened a thousand years ago that he's still carrying in his heart. All I'll say is he's trying to avenge someone."
