Actor Alexander Skarsgard raised temperatures in the South Pole last month by posing naked on an outdoor toilet, and he has the photo proof of his prank.

The hardy “True Blood” star, who reached the coldest place on Earth as part of the Walking With the Wounded Challenge, which also featured British royal Prince Harry, stripped down in the sub-zero wilderness and posed for a toilet shot as he read a book.

His team guide, Inge Solheim, took the photo and posted it on on Tuesday.

The adventurer captioned the shot, “What are you reading, Alex? The script for season 7 of #truebloodHBO?”

In a TV scene similar to the South Pole toilet moment, Skarsgard lounged fully nude on a chaise lounge in snowy Sweden as part of the season six finale of “True Blood.”
