While promoting his new summer film The Legend of Tarzan, Alexander Skarsgard opened up to PrideSource about all the “incredible” gay sex he’s had. Sort of.

Skarsgard was, of course, referring to the gay sex he’s had on camera while he was starring on HBO’s True Blood.

He recalls:

I had two gay sex scenes on the show. They’re incredible scenes. I loved this scene and I remember talking to Theo [Alexander], who played the Greek lover of Russell Edgington [played by Denis O’Hare], and that was the first gay sex scene I had on True Blood. He’s also a straight guy and he was nervous; he had never kissed a guy before.

So how did the guys overcome their nervousness?

Skarsgard explains:

I just said, ‘Look at the scene. It’s this nemesis and he comes in and then it gets seductive and you think they’re gonna make love and it gets into that and then suddenly my character stabs him in the back and he explodes. In two minutes, look at this emotional rollercoaster we’re taking the audience on. If we commit to this, it’s going to be an amazing scene and we’re going to be very happy with it forever. If we hold back, that’s when it gets awkward.’

The 39-year-old actor offers the following advice to other straight actors who may be nervous about filming a same-sex love scene: “Just dive in.”

We like his attitude!
