There are many reasons why fans have flocked to the HBO drama True Blood: violence, action, suspense, a solid cast.
But there's another not-so-hidden secret about the show that has viewers buzzing: nudity. Lots and lots of nudity.
We're not just talking T&A, either. Alexander Skarsgard and the men of True Blood gets plenty nude on an almost-weekly basis.
But that Swedish hunk won't be the only actor to shed his clothing on season three, which premieres in June. Consider these True Blood spoilers, but Ryan Kwanten and Sam Trammell have gone on record with upcoming birthday suit scenes for their characters, as well.
“We joke about who has the record for the most disrobes,” said Trammell (Sam Merlot). “I think Ryan does. But I’m close behind him at this point because I’ve already disrobed like four or five times this year and I don’t think he has at all. I’ve got to fight that out with him."
How does Kwanten (above, right) handle the nudity?
"I sort of hide behind the guise that I am playing a character... Personally, I’m quite restrained and almost introverted. But as Mr. Stackhouse, I can’t afford to have any of those sensitivities.”
