Recently NBC broadcasted an American version of Walking With the Wounded documentary. It fortunately had more Alexander Skarsgård in it than the English version. And we are thankful!!
Also there have been little snippets of film NOT shown in the special. And they give us a great look at Alexander’s sense of humor and also his great support for his comrades. This summer, a.k.a winter for the Northern Hemisphere, was an extremely harsh one and shortened the time that even the scientists had to spend at the South Pole.
Alexander helped keep the spirits up when everyone was lagging. The American Spokesman for the trek showed that he has the heart of our dear American soldiers whom he helped to represent.
The expedition started as a race, but the weather took its toll on all involved. The main participants were soldiers from all over the world, who had been wounded in combat. It was a trek of endurance and courage as they all overcame their injuries to make this over land odyssey.
Below are a few gifs that show Alex at his best. A good, strong soul intent on keeping spirits up.
