True Blood actress Kristin Bauer has claimed that her co-star Alexander Skarsgård is "completely comfortable" with nude scenes.

She told E! Online that the actor, who plays vampire Eric Northman on the HBO series, is often required to be naked on-set for long periods of time.

"He was once naked for about eight hours and he's completely comfortable with it," she explained. "He's Swedish. My husband's band toured in Sweden and he said that's just how it is. There's no puritanical background there. It's nice, because it makes all of us more comfortable with it."

Bauer joked that Skarsgård has not yet donned pink spandex, as his character does in the original Charlaine Harris novels.

"He's not in pink spandex yet," she laughed. "If it doesn't happen, I'm going to... beg him to do it just for me."

Skarsgård previously confirmed that he never covers up for his nude scenes on the show.

The fourth season of True Blood will premiere in summer 2011.
