Being a child of art has its pros and cons: the price of having the doors of Hollywood wide open is that of the inevitable confrontation with a bulky parent, just as happened to Alexander, Gustav, Bill and Valter Skarsgard towards his father Stellan.
The desire to feel up to it and, above all, to convince the father himself of his talent is evident in this case, for example, from the choice of Alexander to participate in the role of protagonist in The Legend of Tarzan, as told by the actor from Melancholia.
"My dad is a huge Tarzan fan. We grew up with these video tapes of Johnny Weissmuller movies, that was the way I got approached the character. But those films are 70 years old, a lot of time has passed, mine tried to rejuvenate the character. I will never compete with Johnny Weissmuller, but I wanted to try to impress my father. He was thrilled. He was more excited than I was"were the words of the actor.
