Alexander Skarsgard will join the US Team for Walking With The Wounded’s South Pole Allied Challenge this November. The True Blood star will compete against Prince Harry‘s UK team, sponsored by Glenfiddich.
“I’m honored to be working and training alongside these soldiers to raise money and awareness for this very worthy cause,” Skarsgard said, according to People.
The trek’s aim to raise awareness and money for wounded veterans.Harry took part in the North Pole expedition back in 2011, shortly before his brother’s wedding.
Back in April, a competitive Harry set the bar for other teams.
“So, it just remains for me to say to Soldier On Canada, Soldiers To Summits from the US and Soldier On Australia – welcome to the party,” the prince said. “As a member of the British team, I will have a brew ready for you when you join us at the Pole.”
All teams have been taking part in extensive training prior to the November start date. The goal is to reach the South Pole around December 17th, 2013.
