About the death of Lagertha, Katheryn Winnick says: That last moment you did where Lagertha falls in the water and lands right next to Ragnar. And a little fun fact to the fans that last line “In my dreams, we are always together,” that was actually my audition line when I first tested as Lagertha. So it’s just full circle to see it all come back.
About the final scene where Ragnar is sitting at the water’s edge, saying goodbye to his daughter, Travis Fimmel says: I don’t know why, but it took me about 3 minutes to memorize that whole thing because it was just written so well. All the best writing, I can memorize like that.
About the fight scene between Ragnar and Rollo, Clive Standen says: The stunt team who were incredible in our show, they always came up with fantastic fights and they came up with a fantastic fight for Ragnar and Rollo. It was all swords and it was a very beautiful fight and Travis came in, and he was right, he just said “this needs to be the tension between the brothers. It needs to be the brothers and not one of them is going to go down until one of them is dead.” He showed some examples of fights and we arranged to get rid of the swords as soon as possible and just hit each other.
About Bjorn Ironside’s greatest love, Alexander Ludwig says: I think that after Thorunn left he had written off everything and kinda just used his sexual exploits as a way of self-medicating.
About his first day on set, Jordan Patrick Smith says: I do remember my first day on the set because Travis slapped me in the face 45 times. That was my introduction to Vikings. When I first came to set it was big shoes to fill. I remember walking down the hills and someone said “please don’t mess this up, our jobs depend on you.” So that was what the four brothers were introduced to walking down the hill. But I also remember everyone being so welcoming…
About the scene where Ragnar learns the Lord’s Prayer, Michael Hirst says: And Travis said to me, “do you think, perhaps it would be a good idea if I don’t say anything in this episode except the Lord’s Prayer?” And I said, “well you are in a lot of scenes” and he said “yeah but I can do it by looking,” I don’t need to say anything. So this was for sure a radical idea and I looked at the script and I was thinking well you know other people can say those words or I can get information somewhere else and it’s a cool idea anyway, we may get away with it.
Vikings will be making it’s final appearance at SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON @ HOME later this month.

Gustaf Skarsgard’s kick-ass Vikings, one of our very favorite shows in the history of absolutely everything, is back next year for a 4th season, and the premiere date has now been announced as February 18th in the US. The season will run for 10 episodes, but there’s a also a bonus announcement – 4 extra episodes to air later in the year! Will Floki survive the entire 14 episode run? Now Ragnar knows for certain that he carried out that dastardly dirty deed……………..we’ll find out in 2016.
Gustaf Skarsgard’s hit TV show “Vikings” has been officially renewed for Season 4, to air in 2016. Season 3 has been averaging around 4.3m viewers during its current US run. With the surprising deaths developments already this season, there is no way to be sure how much longer Floki will be around, but it’s good to see one of the best shows on TV renewed for another year.
And making it a family affair, Gustaf was recently pictured on the set with younger brother Valter…….
Season 3 of Gustaf Skarsgard’s completely brilliant TV show “Vikings” finally gets under way tonight on the US History Channel (10pm ET). As you may be aware, we are very partial to the odd Viking on this site, and we’re looking forward to spending a few good weeks with Floki, King Ragnar and the rest of the kick-ass gang.
The Huffington Post have put together a list of 5 ways the Vikings will invade your life:
Gustaf Skarsgard’s hit TV show Vikingsreturns to the US History Channel for Season 3 in just 8 days time. It’s the first of 3 TV shows that will feature a Skarsgard in a leading role in 2015. Later (probably June) Bill will appear in the final season of Hemlock Grove, and their father Stellan has been busy filming River, a new detective show for the BBC in the UK.
It’s hard for anything to make up for the lack of Alexander we’ll all be feeling on our TVs this year, but at least his wonderfully talented family are helping to ease our pain. Here’s a little Behind The Scenes video for Vikings Season 3 to wet your appetite.
If you’re looking for something to watch on TV now that True Blood is part of broadcasting history, you could do a lot worse than Vikings. It has kick-ass Scandinavian warriors, strong female characters and even a Skarsgard of its own. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on DVD (and Amazon Prime) and here’s the new trailer for Season 3 (coming soon).
Shield Maidens prepare for battle, as the kick-ass TV show that contains all our favorite Vikings that aren’t called Eric Northman is set to return to pillage our village when Season 3 begins on Thursday February 19 2015. With no more True Blood to look forward to, this might possibly turn out to be my television highlight of next year.
Vikings Season 2 was released this week on DVD in the US. If you haven’t had chance to catch up with this great show, we highly recommend it. It stars Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick (as the best female character currently on television), Alexander Ludwig, Clive Standen, Jessalyn Gilsig, and of course Gustaf Skarsgard as Floki.
