What does the cast think about the Vikings?
Alexander Ludwig says, “I think the big thing for me this season is Bjorn has really come into his own as a leader. He’s been through so many different things, he’s had to learn from his father and then sort of create his own path in life. I think this season you see him doing that and it’s awesome to play. It’s also nice because we get to explore his relationship with some of the other characters a little bit more. You get to see him working together with Hvitserk and also with Ivar, which is really interesting.”
Jordan Patrick Smith says about playing Ubbe, “He definitely goes through a lot of changes this season; he’s trying to find his place in the world and he’s not sure if he wants to be a part of this family or if he wants to start his own. He has a lot of conflict within himself. I think that’s something that a lot of people can relate to, especially at that age.” For Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), this season is all about “empowerment.” She says, “You see Lagertha starting off as a farmer, and then becoming a warrior, and then a queen, and now she’s a grandmother. She’s been through so many different experiences in her life, and this season she really steps into her own power. She doesn’t take no for an answer; she knows what she wants and she goes after it. Women around the world can definitely relate to that.”
