Vampires, maenads, telepaths, shapeshifters — even the Fellowship of the Sun.
As True Blood‘s oft-shirtless — and ever clueless — resident mortal hunk Jason Stackhouse, Ryan Kwanten has just about seen it all … – and he’s done it without having to worry much about a wardrobe. But as the third season of theHBO hit series gears up for it’s June 13 premiere, Sookie’s older brother can breathe a slight sigh of relief (and maybe let himself go a bit) as the rest of the cast will be doing the bulk of the flesh-baring.
“I’ve passed the nudity mantel,” Kwanten tells PEOPLE at Ubisoft’s launch of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. “Some of the others cast members have taken on the throne.”
And a sometimes chilly throne it is.
But even as it appears that the chiseled 33-year-old has momentarily relinquished his role as most likely to do a nude scene, the Aussie has found himself quickly filling an even more specific niche.
“I seem to be the go-to guy for any kind of nudity advice on the show because I came out of the gates pretty strong,” he says, chuckling.
His advice for the fellow Bon Temps players getting ready to bare it all?
“To tie the “modesty sock” on really tight,” Kwanten says, laughing, “because you don’t want that thing coming off, because there will be evidence of that forever.”
