International Heart-throbs

As well as our full-length programmes on 4oD, there’s a ton of bespoke, non-broadcast video available on Channel4.com. Recent examples of this are the cast interviews from Shane Meadows’s This Is England 86, the highly succesful continuation of his hit film of the same(ish) name.

In this vein, as it were, check out our interview with Alexander Skarsgård, who plays the dangerous Eric in ‘mature vampire drama’ True Blood. Clearly a serious actor, which explains the å in his surname, Alexander reveals how he owes his appearance in the show to the US writers’ strike, and how his portrayal of Eric was inspired by a male lion in a David Attenborough documentary…

If you’re thirsty for more True Blood, then there are polls, quizzes and competitions here. Visit the site next week for more interviews with Nelsan Ellis and Sam Trammell, AKA Lafayette and Sam.

And in case you missed it, I should point out the site also features a video interview with Stephen Moyer. He plays Bill, who rivals Eric when it comes to sexiest undead bloke in True Blood.

But when it comes to sex appeal, both Stephen and Alexander would surely have to take a back seat to Coach Trip legend Brendan. In this exclusive interview, Brendan reveals that he hasn’t, in fact, been to every place in the world, and how he had to fend off the unwanted attentions of Yannis to maintain his reputation as an international tour guide. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

If you, like Yannis, can’t get enough Brendan in your life, visit the site for his daily video blogs. And if you, like Yannis, would like to see Brendan in the flesh, then you can apply to take part in future series of Coach Trip here.

And there will be future series. This is one show that’s not going anywhere…
