Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood) stars in What Maisie Knew, a modern day version of Henry James’ story about a young girl (Onata Aprile) who is caught in the middle of her parents’ (Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan) custody battle. Skarsgard co-stars in the film as Moore’s companion, who gradually forms a strong and fatherly bond with Maisie.
During the inteviews for What Maisie Knew, Skarsgard talked about the creatively freeing atmosphere on the set. “We tried to create an environment where you’re allowed to make mistakes or if you have an idea, you’ll try it and go in a certain direction,” says Skarsgard. “It might be terrible. But it’s fine. That’s how you stretch and that’s how you explore. I want to be surprised. I don’t want to come to set knowing exactly how the scene is going to play out or where we’re going to end at the end of the day. I felt that (Julianne Moore) was very much on the same page. It’s a discovery.”
