True Blood finally gives Ryan Kwanten and Alexander Skarsgard chance to share scene - and it's very gay

The characters of Jason Stackhouse and Eric Northman had not shared a scene together – alone – on HBO’s True Blood until the most recent episode which premiered on Sunday (29 June).

They made it a scene to remember.

Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten) and vampire Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) hook up at the start of the episode in a dream sequence that leaves little to the imagination.

‘There was word on the street that a scene was coming, and to be honest, Alex and I had been — not necessarilybeggingto work together — but we’d been pondering the thought, “What if we were ever put in a scene where it was just the two of us? What would happen?” And this is what our illustrious writers came up with,’ Kwanten tells TV Line.

Stackhouse has had similar same-sex dreams before but this is the one that goes the farthest.

He said the scene with Skarsgard took a few hours to film and both were in good spirits throughout.

‘I always have a lot of fun, and I think that’s the important thing to remember,’ he said. ‘We’re just there to have fun and to stay true to the characters. Thinking back to this particular scene, I just remember Alex and I laughing a lot.’

You can see the scene in gallery form at TV Line.

Season 7 of True Blood will premiere in the UK on 7 July on FOX.
