Typically Alexander Skarsgard has a somewhat serious look on his face, so it is always a pleasure to seem him showing off his irresistible smile.
In the politically charged drama, the nearly unrecognizable True Blood star plays Benji, a founding member of an eco-anarchist group, called The East, that aims to punish those who pollute the earth. But don’t you dare call him the leader.
“It’s very important to Benji that he is not the leader,” Skarsgard told EW. “There’s no leader. They discuss everything. It’s very decentralized, it’s a collective.”
Also fueling that hive mind is Ellen Page’s character, who she describes as “a very intense eco-anarchist [who] believes in people taking responsibly for their destruction and death and sickness they’re putting on the planet.” Page says that she related to her character on a ethical level, adding, “In our world, we don’t hold those people accountable. I can understand [her] frustration.”
