When it comes to acting in Sweden, the Skarsgård family is nothing sort of royalty. From Stellan Skarsgård to Alexander and Bill Skarsgård, the Skarsgård children have taken over the mantle of the family and are doing quite well for themselves. Of the 8 Skarsgård children, 7 followed their father into the entertainment industry, save for Sam, who followed his mother’s footsteps to become a doctor. Another peculiar thing about the Skarsgård family is that the family is composed of 7 sons and a single daughter. In this article, we will be talking about Eija Skarsgård, the sole daughter in the Skarsgård household.

She runs the house
Being the only daughter of the family, it is safe to say that Eija Skarsgård is not only spoiled by her parents but also by her brothers. While many seem to think that growing with 7 brothers can be intimidating, for Eija it was quite the opposite. Amongst the siblings, it was Elijah who ran the family and there was no questioning her authority. Talking about their childhood Alex revealed a funny incident when Eija took control of the house.
“When my sister Eija was maybe two and a half years old, she and my brother had an argument. Eija couldn’t write, so she said, ‘Dad, write this down: Girls are always right.’ He taped that up on the kitchen wall. It’s still hanging there.”
While she might refrain from doing so again, it is safe to say that Eija is still the queen of the Skarsgård household.
A professional model
While most of her brothers followed their father into acting, Eija wanted to try a different part of the entertainment industry. Eija was discovered by a modeling agency when she attended the premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean, where her father played the role of Bill Turner. The agency offered Elijah a modeling contract and she happily accepted the job. However, four years later, Eija decided to quit modeling and spend some time away from the camera. She later revealed in an interview that she quit modeling because she was constantly pestered to loose wight to adhere to the beauty standards set by the modeling industry. Before she knew it, modeling started becoming less fun and more of a job.
Life after modeling
After quitting modeling, Eija switched to a different career path and became a manager at a nightclub called ‘Vardagsrummet’ in Stureplan, Stockholm. She worked there until it closed down in 2019 due to the covid-19 pandemic. Since then, she has worked in the casting department for multiple projects, such as Young Royals (2020-2022) and Lust (2022).
She has an estimated net worth of $0.6 million, which she earned mostly from modeling for various projects, including advertisements, magazine covers and working in the casting department for multiple projects.
Eija Skarsgård was born on the 27th of February 1992 in Stockholm, Sweden. Born to Stellan Skarsgård and My Skarsgård, Eija was raised in a creative household. Her father is a world-renowned actor while her mother worked as a doctor. Even though her parents divorced in 2007, Eija maintains a good relationship with both her mother and stepmother, Megan Everett. Born into a family of 7 brothers, Eija shares an amazing bond with her siblings and the family meets up now and then.
Currently, Eija is dating a man by the name of Zeke Tastas. Little is known about Zeke and as to how he met Eija.
