Sam's Brother Alexander Is Now The Father Of A Child

Alexander attended the premiere of the 4th season of Succession on 20th March 2023

At the event, he revealed that he and his girlfriend, Tuva Novotny, are now the parents of their first child

Rumors about them being parents had circulated last November after they were spotted holding a newborn. 

Alexander and Tuva were fellow co-stars in the movie “The Kingdom: Exodus,” released in 2022.

On the red carpet, when a reporter congratulated him on his family’s new member, the actor swiftly responded, “Thank you very much.”

Alexander Didn't Want To follow in His Father Stellan's Footsteps.

Born in the Skarsgard family, Alexander axiomatically got roles in movies. 

He eventually started loathing the attention that he was showered with and subsequently developed imposter syndrome. 

While still a teenager, he had vowed never to pursue acting. “But I’ve failed,” he says. 

Now he is one of the most renowned actors in the industry.
