So he can do nice: Alexander Skarsgard on the set of his new movie What Maisie Knew today in New York

His blood-sucking vampire character Eric Northman would be enough to strike the fear of God into any young child.

But True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard is seen here in a role which could not be any more incongruous - as a doting daddy.

The 34-year-old actor was on the set of his new movie, What Maisie Knew, shooting scenes with his on-screen daughter in New York today.

In one shot, he is seen lifting the little girl up by her hands, while in another she swings off his arms with a huge grin on her face.

Alexander plays the role of an art dealer going through a tumultuous divorce with his rock star wife.

The film follows the story of how their split impacts on their six-year-old daughter.

It has only just started filming and there are few details on the movie, which is set for release next year.

It will also feature Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan and little-known Scottish actress, Joanna Vanderham.

The 20-year-old blonde was also spotted on location, shooting scenes where she was holding the little girl's hand while talking on her phone.

Swedish actor Alexander - best known for his role in True Blood alongside the likes of Anna Paquin - is the son of veteran actor Stellan Skarsgard.
