Early life and family
Sam was born on June 5, 1982 as Samuel Kristoffer Ymer Skarsgård, in Stockholm, Sweden. His father is veteran actor Stellan, who has been acting for over five decades now. Many may have a hard time recognizing him in the “Pirates of The Caribbean” movies because of his costume details that effectively concealed his face.
Stellan was the father of Will Turner, Bootstrap Bill Turner, in both “Dead Man’s Chest” and “At World’s End”. Sam’s mother, My Skarsgård, is a doctor and the inspiration behind Sam’s motivation to become a doctor. He has four brothers namely Alexander, Gustaf, Bill and Valter as well as a sister, Eija. All of his siblings followed in their father’s footsteps and pursued careers in the film industry.
In 2007, Sam’s parents divorced and two years later, Stellan married his second wife, Megan Everett, who had two more children. Sam’s half-siblings Ossian and Kolbjorn.
Alexander is the eldest of all eight of Stellan’s children. He is an actor best known for his role as Eric in “True Bloods”. The second child, Gustaf, is best known for playing Floki in the TV show “Vikings”. Sam is the third born and is followed by his younger brother Bill, who has starred in films such as “The Divergent Series: Allegiant”.
His youngest brother, Valter, can be seen in two films in the “Arn” series, including “The Knight Templar” and “The Kingdom At Road’s End”. His only sister, Eija, is a former model.
Sam has said his family is close and their creativity has always been fueled by their father’s encouragement. He also remembers from childhood that his parents organized several dinners, and many of the guests often stayed.
While much information about Sam’s early life has been shared by his famous siblings, his own details are vague and hard to find. Nothing is known about his educational background, where he went to school or what institution he graduated from.
Since he currently works as a doctor, it must be assumed that he has completed medical training.
Sam landed his first roll next to his father when he was young. Like most of his siblings, he almost became a child star, but decided the silver screen wasn’t his thing.
The film in which he did get the credit was ‘Jim and the Pirates’ from 1987, in which his father had a lead role. Sam had also acted as a body double for his brother Gustaf in the 2002 fantasy film “The Invisible”.
He worked as a production manager for the Swedish films “Att Doda Ett Barn” and “Skuggvarld”.
Sam currently works as a doctor in the intensive care unit of an undisclosed hospital in Stockholm. There is little information to confirm the exact hospital, nor his exact duties as a doctor, and despite having a Facebook profile, nothing is mentioned about his current activities.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Since Sam is not the most famous of his siblings, it is almost impossible to find information about his likes and dislikes. There is no mention in any wiki about personal preferences or about his interests.
Also, no information is disclosed on his social media accounts, all of which have been inactive for the past few years. Sam is a lesser known member of the Skarsgård family, but has appeared at gala events with the rest of his family. On many occasions at these gala events, Sam was accompanied by his wife.
