Many people do not know that the popular Swedish actors Stellan Skarsgård and Bill Skarsgård are related by blood as they are father and son.

Bill is Stellan’s fourth child among six from his first marriage to a doctor, My Skarsgård.

Apart from being a father figure, Stellan also plays the role of mentor in Bill’s acting career and life. The two have also shared a platform for acting with their other family members.

Moreover, comedy, support, shared lifestyle, competitive interdependence, and professional mentoring mark their relationship.

Bill began to doubt if it was right for him, all while admiring his father’s career!

Bill Skarsgård wanted to become an actor from a young age. However, during his teenage years, he started to question his desire.

In 2016, Bill told People, “But as I got into my teenage years, I thought, is it really me wanting this or because I want to follow in my dad’s footsteps?”

This led to his decision to study science in high school, but he discovered that he had wanted to be an actor all along, so he proceeded to build his career.

I always get the need to do it myself,” he noted. Thus, he wanted to make a career for himself on his own without relying on his already famous father and brother.

Moreover, Bill and Stellan’s conversation in Hero magazine shows their humor and implies a friendly relationship.

Stellan expresses pride in acknowledging Bill’s achievements and admires his skills and confidence.

He reassures Bill that his pace of success does not make him an unworthy actor in the industry. Stellan acknowledges that Bill wants to take full responsibility for his work and feel it as his own.

Bill, on the other hand, appreciates his father’s experience and knowledge of acting and filmmaking.
