Alexander Skarsgård plays lone vampire Eric Northman in True Blood, and as difficult as it is to believe, the Swedish sex-bomb insists he’s unattached off-screen as well as on.

Despite rumors of romance with Straw Dogs co-star Kate Bosworth, Alexander told E! News on the Golden Globes red carpet last night, “I’m single!”

But, the nordic hunk admitted he’s looking for a girl with “a sense of humor,” and he’s not necessarily looking to date a woman in the industry.

“I don’t think that matters,” he said. “There are pros and cons to both. It’s about a connection. I don’t really care what they do for a living if the connection is there.”

Meanwhile, he dished about the third season of True Blood which premieres in June. “We started [filming] like a month ago, shot one episode before Christmas.”

Any spoilers about Eric’s fascination with Anna Paquin‘s Sookie? “Eric is still going to kind of pursue that and explore. He finds her curious and interesting. He’s not going to stop.”

But what about the love of her life, Bill, played by Stephen Moyer? “Maybe he wants what he can’t have,” muses the 33-year-old. “Or maybe he can have it! We’ll see. He’s not going to let Bill stop him, obviously.”
