    I Think Alexander Skarsgard Is Secretly On Instagram And I'm Having Heart Palpitations

    First he was a vampire, now he's a ghost.

    Guys, hey guys. Ssshhhh, come a little closer. I have a secret to tell you.


    Now, I'm trusting you to keep this just between us. Can I count on you?


    Whew! Ok, here's the skinny. So, you know Alexander SkarsgΓ₯rd? The beautiful, Swedish giant who was sent down from heaven to grace our screens with his talented acting and gorgeous face?

    What do you mean you don't know who I'm talking about? Yes, you do!

    Here he is in True Blood, The Legend of Tarzan, and (my personal favorite) Zoolander.

    Paramount Pictures

    Did that jog your memory? Thought so.

    And, just because, here he is being fucking adorable with some random ass wildlife creature.

    Ok, so the Big Little Lies actor is known for keeping his personal life pretty under wraps, but even he can't resist the allure of the 'gram.


    Now, hold on, I know what you're thinking. I, too, am a huge fan of his and want to follow him on social media, so I was disappointed to discover that when you search his name on Instagram, you just get a bunch of fan accounts, not a verified one, which β€” in this day and age β€” usually means that we have to resort to Googling to find candid shots of our fave celebs. BUT WAIT! Here's where it gets juicy.

    There's a PUBLIC account on Instagram with the username @rexdanger and I'm ~pretty~ sure it belongs to our beloved Swede. Of course, being the amateur detective that I am, I had to do some digging and drum up some evidence:

    1: Let's look at who he's following.

    Instagram: @

    Not only does he follow most of the Skarsgard clan, but also former co-stars from True Blood and the official account for his most recent film. He also follows a slew of Swedish sports teams.

    2: Let's look at who follows him.

    Instagram: @

    Not all, but many of his followers are loyal stans, like myself.

    3: Last, but certainly not least, let's analyze some photos.

    Why, yes, that is comedian/actor Jack McBrayer. If you weren't aware (because I certainly was not), the two are actually really good friends. Just look at this fun thing they did together!

    Then, there's this photo (note the caption).

    Look familiar?

    Let's zoom, shall we.

    Now, while I can't confirm that Mr. Skarsgard is, in fact, the mastermind behind @rexdanger I'm reallllllly hoping that he is.

    Remember, you promised to keep this just between us, so don't all go following ~his~ account at once.
