With the series wrapped and only one episode left to air, True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgård is ready to make some changes in his career. He’s leaving Los Angeles and heading to New York.

He talked to Vulture about his big move.

Skarsgård said, “I’m in London for another three months for Tarzan, and then my plan is definitely to move to New York. I’m really excited about it. I don’t really have any plans in terms of what I want to do — movies, television, theater — but I’d love to do a play in New York. Anything that would be a break from what I’ve been doing, something different.”

The Swedish actor might even follow in his dad’s footsteps and do a musical.

“I mean, my dad did Mamma Mia!, just after he had done a couple of dark indie films, and he had a really good time doing that. He loved it. He was like, ‘Fuck it! This is fun. This is different. There’s nothing wrong with fun. I’ll do it!’ You know? It’s all about trying to find those projects where you get to enjoy yourself, because I think that’s when you create as well, when you’re genuinely excited about something. Then you’re not just doing it because it’s your job,” he shared.

Even though Skarsgård doesn’t exactly know where his path will take him, he’s energized by the possibilities.

He summed up, “After seven years on the show, where every break before was a hiatus from the show, there’s something quite exciting about not knowing what I’m going to do next. It’s a feeling I haven’t had in seven years, and I’m pretty excited about it.”

The series finale of True Blood airs on HBO on Sunday, Aug. 25.
