Eija Skarsgård was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on February 27, 1992, to Stellan and My Skarsgård.

It is a Finnish name meaning “Happy.”

Based on her date of birth, she is a Pisces. Her zodiac suggests that she is creative, empathetic, and generous; however, she is closed off, money-minded, and pessimistic.

Her parents had six children. But, amusingly, she was the only daughter of all.

Eija’s brothers often referred to her as the one who ran the household.

The Skarsgard household had a community involving many artists during the late 1970s. It was allegedly wild with illegal substances floating around, despite which all of the members reportedly enjoyed their childhood.

Things became uncomfortable when other girls came over from school and saw the older brothers walking around the house naked. 

In addition, the Skarsgård family became highly popular in Sweden and even in various parts of the world due to their father’s success in the acting industry. 

Stellan’s fame inspired his children to pursue similar types of careers in their life.

While many siblings in the family decided to pursue acting, Eija took on a different path and started modeling as her career instead.

Although Eija continues managing the nightclub she owns, she makes herself time to meet with her family every once in a while.

Eija’s parents separated in 2007, and her father remarried writer-producer Megan Everett. Despite this, the Skarsgard family remains close.

Eija has two half-siblings from her stepmother, Everett. All the siblings get along well with their stepmother.

Eija mentioned that she does not desire to follow in her parent’s footsteps in an interview. Therefore, she is happy with her role and career as a manager.

She is happy with her life as a manager and will look into modeling in the future.

She wrote,

Today it is 10 years since Zeke and I first met. I ran a club called Vardagsrummet and Zeke was booked to run a monthly club there. We met at the bar before opening and started talking. I was instantly killed. Remember everything about this meeting, even exactly what he was wearing for clothes. Unfortunately about 2 minutes into the conversation he introduces his girlfriend so then I thought aja then it was over.

I remember the next day I told my girl friends that I had met such a fucking good-looking Argentine named Zeke but unfortunately he had a girl. So we just became friends. BUT six months later he had broken up with his girlfriend, and then he hung up on me at Spy Bar. AND THE REST IS HISTORY. For me, it was really love at first sight there ten years ago. Am so lucky that I got my dream. Love you Zeke!
