Last week =, The Knockturnal had the pleasure of attending the premiere for Robert Eggers’ new feature ‘The Northman.’
Just one look at the promotional pictures for The Northman shows the hard work and dedication Alexander Skarsgård put into his character. In the new movie, directed by Robert Eggers, Skarsgård plays a young Viking prince on a quest to avenge his father’s murder. The film required a powerful and beast-like leading man, and Skarsgård was up for the challenge. The man responsible for getting Skarsgård into true Northman shape? Fitness trainer, Swiss native and true transformer, Magnus Lygdbäck.
