    "Westworld" Star Gustaf Skarsgård Is Bill And Alexander's Brother, FYI

    Gustaf Skarsgård is here to change your narrative.

    If you're a Westworld fan, I'm just going to go ahead and assume you've already watched last night's premiere. And — even if you haven't — it's okay, because I promise there are no major plot spoilers here.

    So, in the midst of trying to figure out what in the sweet hell was going on during Westworld's Season 2 premiere, you probably also noticed a few new faces.

    One of those new faces is Karl Strand — Head of Operations for Delos — played by Gustaf Skarsgård.

    And, YUP, Gustaf is one of THOSE Skarsgårds.

    His brothers are Alexander and Bill — best known perhaps as Eric from True Blood and Pennywise from It, respectively.

    Some facts about Gustaf (because who DOESN'T want to know everything about another hot Skarsgård brother?!):

    He's 6'4" (according to Google, anyway) — just like Alexander and Bill.

    He's 37 years old.

    But he's been acting since he was 6 years old.

    He attended the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, graduating in 2003.

    And played sadistic high school student Otto Silverheim in the Oscar-nominated film Evil.

    He acted alongside his father Stellan again in the biggest Swedish production ever, Arn: The Knight Templar in 2007.

    Currently, he also stars in the TV show Vikings.

    And he was a BIG fan of Westworld even before being on it.

    In fact, it turns out, his Westworld audition went terribly.

    And finally, he's admitted that there's a bit of a rivalry between him and his brothers.

    Which Skarsgård brother is your favorite, though?
