"Åkerlund: I wouldn't say it's just that, is it? Maybe. I always thought we had a different shock level there. I didn't realize, until I came abroad, that some of the stuff I did was controversial or different or dark.
Out: So that probably makes something like True Blood, which is seen in America as pretty dark, seem relatively mild in Sweden?
Skarsgård: Very tame, very tame, by Swedish standards.
Åkerlund: One thing I notice when I've been in Los Angeles and then come back to Sweden is that when I put on the TV and see a naked person, I go, "Whoa." It takes me a little bit of time to convert every time I come back. It's just two different cultures.
Skarsgård: And that always strikes me as weird because parents in the States freak out if their kids see a nipple or a butt cheek, but at the same time they're OK with their kids watching people bash each other's heads in with baseball bats. I notice in interviews in the U.S. all people want to talk about is nudity. You have a half-hour interview, and you spend 25 minutes talking about the nude scenes, and of course, if it makes sense as a scene, I'll do it. I don't even think someone -- some guy who doesn't know any gay people or black people, who may have all these prejudices -- if that guy watches the show and thinks, I really like this character, then you've done something pretty good.
