Upon the launch of Vikings Valhalla, the cast of Vikings expressed their feelings and advice for the new generation of Vikings. Katheryn Winnick, who played Lagertha, wants the cast to enjoy every moment of the show. Alex Høgh Andersen essayed Ivar the Boneless. He has a bit more practical advice when he says, “Always wear an extra pair of underwear because it’s really cold.” Actor Alexander Ludwig who played Bjorn Ironside is serious about taking breaks in between shots.
“And go to the bathroom before you get on the ships.”
Ludwig mentioned that it was a lifetime opportunity for him to be part of the project. Ludwig further adds that he was immediately transported to the Vikings’ age in history. This in turn made it easier for him to essay his role. “You’re just transported into this world, where you really don’t have to act.”
Katheryn Winnick felt transformational in Vikings gear
A lot of details went into the set design and costume. The details make the experience of watching Vikings richer. Winnick shares the same sentiment. When she wore her costume for the first time she felt she was a Viking.
“How I felt when I suited up in my Vikings gear for the very first time was transformational.” Ludwig mentioned that it was surprising that there were so many “Shield-Maidens generals”.
