London: Actress Ellen Page has been receiving death threats by a jealous fan of ‘True Blood’ actor Alexander Skarsgard. The 25-year-old star met Skarsgard while filming ‘The East’ and the pair was spotted together in Los Angeles in June.

The actress received a tweet, which threatened that she will be murdered if she continues seeing the 35-year-old, a leading daily has reported.

“I’m going to murder Ellen Page. She’s dead,” the tweet said.

“Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander I will K-1-L-L you in public in the next year... Be it in a club, at a game, in a restaurant, or when you’re signing autographs,” another chilling threat said.

The ‘Juno’ star has turned the messages over to detectives in LA who have launched an inquiry. The threats also coincided with a call to organizers of the LA Film Festival threatening to go and “kill Page”.
