Margot Robbie ‘swoons’ over Alexander Skarsgard in ‘Tarzan,’ talks about Jane

“He’s really big,” she said at Samuel L Jackson’s One for the Boys charity fashion ball. “I look like a hobbit next to him.”

If you think Robbie is emotional, she was only beginning.

“We were doing camera tests the other day and my fingertips were literally at his kneecaps. I think every girl on set is swooning.”

Robbie says Jane is “… quite independent, not so reliant on Tarzan. She’s definitely a strong character, very intelligent and fun.”

Skarsgard shocked True Blood fans with his naked appearance at the end of last season. The photo is below.

He’s set to appear titular character in Tarzan after several production delays, concerns over the budget and changes in directors.

This new film will be directed by David Yates (Harry Potter franchise) and also star Samuel L Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Djimon Hounsou, Adrian Palmer and Clive Aitkins.

The Edgar Rice Burroughs classic will be integrated in the adaptation which will tell the familiar tale of the eponymous hero, orphaned as a baby and raised in the jungle, who returns to urban London as a man. Jerry Weintraub, David Barron and Alan Riche are producing.

Tarzan will be adapted in 3D and is set to arrive in theaters on July 1, 2016.

True Blood‘s seventh season will be the last, so Alexander is ending his reign as Eric Northman. True Blood arrives on HBO June 22, 2014.

Robbie talked her other projects, working with Chris Pine, so check out the full talk HERE
