BrXRncTCcAAEN3_True Blood's Ryan Kwanten has spoken about his already infamous gay sex scene with co-star Alexander Skarsgård. The pair appeared in a passionate dream sequence for the latest episode of the HBO drama's final season, which the actor says was "a lot of fun" to film. He told TV Line: "I always have a lot of fun, and I think that's the important thing to remember. We're just there to have fun and to stay true to the characters. "Thinking back to this particular scene, I just remember Alex and I laughing a lot." Kwanten also revealed that he and Skarsgård have always been keen to star in a scene together. He added: "There was word on the street that a scene was coming, and to be honest, Alex and I had been - not necessarily begging to work together - but we'd been pondering the thought, 'What if we were ever put in a scene where it was just the two of us? What would happen?' And this is what our illustrious writers came up with." Take a look at GIFs from Kwanten and Skarsgård's steamy scene here. True Blood's seventh and final season begins in the UK next Monday (July 7) on Fox. > ICYMI: Ryan Kwanten’s bum in ‘True Blood’ (NSFW) > ‘True Blood’ actor denies quitting show over gay storyline
