It’s Alex vs. the Ginger Prince in a race to the South Pole
PRINCE Harry will fight a cold-blooded foe in a race to the South Pole — True Blood vampire Alexander Skarsgard.
The royal Army captain takes on the Swede actor in the Walking With the Wounded Allied Challenge, which sees our serviceman compete with US troops and an Australian-Canadian team.
Skarsgard, 37, stars in the award-winning series True Blood. He was training with the US and Commonwealth teams for a challenge in Colorado, US — the preparation for November’s gruelling 208-mile trek.
Skarsgard grew up skiing and served in the Swedish military in an anti-terrorism unit in the Stockholm archipelago.
Apache pilot Harry, 28, will prepare for his polar expedition in a cold chamber for two days next week at Mira Ltd in Nuneaton, Warwicks.
