Fans who love Alexander Skarsgard for his role as Eric Northman in HBO’s hit series “True Blood” won’t see too much of their favorite fanged Viking in his recent roles.

In “Straw Dogs” he plays a villain who ends up brutally raping his ex-girlfriend, in “Battleship” he’s a naval officer, and in the upcoming indie “The East” he’s the head of an anarchist activism organization.

“I found myself in a line of 50 girls all of whom had their hair curled, their lips glossed and were wearing high heels,” she explains in her warm East Coast accent, her anger subsiding. Yet I know that each one of them is an interesting person, and not one of them wants to be dressed like this to beg for a part in a horror film.’ She chose the latter, which, she says, was the harder option.

Two years later, in 2011, she became the first woman to have not one but two films being premiered in the same year at the Sundance Film Festival, both of which she had co-written, produced and starred in.

The two classmates often trade off on directing Marling’s features.

No details about the plot or setting were revealed.In the psychological thriller Sound of My Voice two documentary makers attempt to expose a cult leader (played by Marling), while in Another Earth, which was the bigger commercial success, she played a woman who causes a tragic accident on the night an identical version of our planet appears in the sky. All of which makes her decision to star in Babylon, a six-part comedy drama for Channel 4, more extraordinary.Both films were unexpected and clever, and overnight Marling became something of a star. Picking her roles carefully, she’s since appeared in The Company You Keep with Robert Redford, Arbitrage with Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon, and The East with Alexander Skarsgård, which she co-produced and co-wrote. When you are a 30-year-old Hollywood actress, to say nothing of a sought-after screenwriter, offers aren’t in short supply.“I think everybody’s going to be surprised to see everyone in this. I don’t think anyone is recognizable, if that makes sense,” she explained.Marling and her “Sound of my Voice” co-writer and director Zal Batmanglij have reteamed in their respective roles for the upcoming thriller.
