"I was inspired by a TV documentary on lions. The way the male moves – confident, graceful, calm and quietly menacing. Make a wrong move and you’re dead. In his heart, Eric is a lion. An animal. Someone as powerful and experienced as Eric doesn’t need to show what he is. He only has to whisper, and people listen and obey. Eric also has a sensitive side, is very passionate, and can be a valuable friend. He does not like many people, but those he loves, he is very dedicated to.” - Alexander Skarsgard on Eric Northman
