Sam Skarsgård Is A Doctor
Stellan Skarsgård’s son with his ex-wife, actress My Skarsgård, Sam Skarsgård had a pretty good shot at becoming an actor himself. Even though his brothers are themselves actors, Sam didn’t let acting dictate his career. Instead, he chose to be a doctor like his mother. The 37-year-old is a Swedish physician by profession. However, Stellan Skarsgård’s son, Sam did try his hands in the acting industry. He was the assistant production manager of the film Att döda ett barn (2003) and Skuggvärld (2005). The movie Att döda ett barn starred his father, Stellan Skarsgård and brother Valter Skarsgård.
Stellan Skarsgård’s son, Sam Skarsgård was the body double for his brother Gustaf Skarsgård in the movie The Invisible (2002). Sam has till date appeared in only one film, ‘Jim & piraterna Blom’ in 1987. He was only five then. The cast of the film includes his father as well. Sam appeared as a little child in the movie.
Sam Skarsgård’s Personal Life
Not much is known about Sam Skarsgård’s personal life. He is 1.96 m tall and a Gemini. Sam grew up among his siblings, taking care of each other while their father was away at work. He hasn’t stayed in the limelight like his sister and brothers. The doctor is also already married. His wife’s name is alleged to be Pat Metheny. She has appeared alongside him and the Skarsgård’s in events and programs. The story about the couple and how they met is yet to be discerned.
Stellan Skarsgård’s son, Sam has a Twitter account but hasn’t been active since 2014. He doesn’t seem to use any other social media account. Being brought up in fame and public disclosure, we assume Sam realized it wasn’t his ideal way of living. We wish the doctor all the success and happiness life has to offer.
