The Succession actor revealed to ET’s Rachel Smith that he and his girlfriend Tuva Novotny had their first child at the season 4 premiere held at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday evening.
Skarsgard replied with a smile, “Thank you very much,” when he was congratulated on the birth of his family’s new child. In November, Skarsgard and Novotny were spotted out with their child.
Alexander Skarsgard is deserving of felicitations.
He displayed the plush animal he received at the premiere with great pride. “I received this on the red carpet,” the 46-year-old actor remarked, revealing the toy. “Thank you very much!”
Skarsgard portrays Lukas Matsson, a clever digital Entrepreneur whose streaming firm, GoJo, is merging with Logan Roy’s Waystar Royco, on the critically acclaimed HBO drama. The actor, who joined the series in its third season, found it impossible to predict how Succession viewers will respond to the last episode’s conclusion, although he did provide a tantalizing hint.
“It is difficult to predict [how viewers would respond]. This season is quite well-written, in my opinion. I cannot state that you will be satisfied “Skarsgard remarked honestly. “Without a doubt, towards the conclusion of the season, people will be astonished and stunned. And I hope that the concert leaves the audience satisfied but also wanting more.”
He also said that he is sharing the spotlight with cast members different than his normal scene partners from the previous season.

“This season, I also collaborated with a few other individuals, which was an absolute pleasure. Not to say that the previous season with Brian [Cox], Jeremy [Strong], and Kieran [Culkin] wasn’t amazing, but this season will be even better “Skarsgard teased. Amazing, unbelievable.
The Swedish actor commended the ensemble for greeting him with open arms, describing them all as “delightful.”
“Particularly after two and a half years on the show… I was quite appreciative because they are themselves very lovely. They are extremely giving with their time and energy, as well as kind and hospitable “Skarsgard observed. “That made my work much simpler. Extremely skilled. It is absurd.”
On what he has learned from portraying Lukas over the last two seasons, Skarsgard remarked that his character is motivated by competitiveness — it just so happens that the rivalry includes billions of dollars.
“I do not believe he is motivated by avarice or the desire to amass more fortune. I believe it became a game, just like any other game, since he’s so competitive. That was a purchase of a multibillion-dollar corporation, but for him it was just another game “he remarked. “This ought to be impossible.’ ‘Well, really? Hence, I will make it happen. This game was quite enjoyable to play.”
