The Skarsgårds – One Family That’s Taking Hollywood’s Leading Role

A group of people posing for a photo  Description automatically generated

When you think of Swedish you can’t help to think of home self-assembled goods. Well, there nothing better than self-assembling your own household with a family and nothing quite beats the talented product of Stellan Skarsgård, who has assembled with his now-famous family of major Hollywood actors… and that includes himself.
This is Kardashians but on a more respectable plateau. Over-produced shock factor moments are instead replaced with a family honing their talent and craft that has led them to dominate the key-roles in Hollywood’s biggest movies and network studio’s most popular TV series.

Stellan Skarsgård

Though we focus on the fabulous four, there are actually a total of eight children in the Skarsgård family, born of the same mother and father. So, the talent gene runs throughout. So, what’s the secret ingredient a father and mother could pass on to their children that have formed equal success?
When the children each reached the age of 16, the world was theirs to make what they wanted of it.
“When they turn 16, it’s no longer our business what they decide to do with their lives. You have to let them make those kinds of decisions themselves.”

The apple, it seems, doesn’t fall too far from the acting tree. As for Stellan, his fingered branches have worked their way into hundreds of films and some very notable TV programs. His accolades in the industry include:
Good Will Hunting, Amistad, Dancer in the Dark, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Mamma Mia, The Avengers, the HBO mini-series Chernobyl and will be in the 2020 release of Dune.
Stellan is an actor of incredible pedigree and a film with him now, even as a supporting cast member, is often a seal of approval. His talents were very much crafted in Swedish TV and cinema, beginning as far back as 1968, but it wasn’t until 1997 when American and a larger global audience took notice when playing the math lecturer Lambeau in Good Will Hunting.

Alexander Skarsgård

Years of doing Swedish shows and movies, since 1984, it wasn’t until 2011 that he started appearing in movies of a higher calibre. What followed were roles in Melancholia, TV series True Blood, Zoolander 2, The Legend of Tarzan, TV series Big Little Lies and is soon to star in the 2021 production of Godzilla vs. Kong.
His life as a child was described as “Being surrounded by a community of artists”, It was a wild time adding to the way Swedish do have a more relaxed approach to life, given his early memory was of his father walking around the house naked holding a glass of red wine.

Gustaf Skarsgård

A picture containing person, man, sitting, looking  Description automatically generatedWhen acclaimed actors such as Daniel Day-Lewis are professing you to be “one of the great” you can immediately quit acting having achieved such recognition. The career of Gustaf has been limited compared to his siblings. Not as much of the Heartthrob status, this path has been a twist and turn going from alternative projects to seriously career-defining ones, rather than having that consistent growth many actors have.
His career began back in 1989, much like the rest of the family, in Sweden and unknown to western audiences. Then Vikings, the TV series was made and the role of Folki resonated with fans and critics. The Vikings franchise was huge in 2019 and was the #1 online slot machine that year for online casinos in which the character of Folki presided. The online casino game was a hit with fans of the TV show and for gamers that were unaware of who the actor was. The Vikings slot machine is a must for any movie and gaming fan.
From this, a relatively obscure film called Darling, to then appear in the HBO series of Westworld from 2018 onwards.

Bill Skarsgård

A person looking at the camera  Description automatically generatedThe millennial thespian, the younger brother, the one that played IT! Bill undoubtedly hit the major spotlight after playing Pennywise in the film adaption of Steven King’s novel IT.
Now, we can all kind of guess by know how his career path formed and you’d be right to assume it was the same as the rest of the family. Though it wasn’t till the 2017 release of IT, Bill had appeared in the movie Atomic Blonde with Charlize Theron and the 2012 remake of Anna Karenina starring Kiera Knightley and Jude Law.
Since IT, roles have been seen in films such as Assassination Nation, Villans, Deadpool 2, TV series Castle Rock and is due to star in the new Robert Eggers movie The Northman, in which he will star alongside his brother Alexander, who is also the executive producer.
