From ONTD Askars (source here; translated from Cafe Magazine):
Earlier in the day, we ate lunch at The Hungry Cat, a fantastic seafood restaurant that - diagnostically for this city - is hidden behind a boring shopping mall. Alexander is dazed, despite it being one in the afternoon. He has recorded a scene for True Blood all night.
- We started at 11 at night and kept going until five in the morning. Since it’s a vampire show, all outdoor scenes needs to be recorded at night. The scene we shot was kind of fun, because we were talking Swedish. It was a flashback to the Viking days and the director wanted to do it genuinely so they found a professor from Chicago who’s an expert on how people spoke in the 900s. You really don’t understand a word, it sounds like Icelandic.
