“VIKINGS”: The Season Premiere Q & A by Tamara Bakx
Recently the new season of Vikings aired in the USA and Canada. Several cast members were on Twitter or U-Stream to answer questions from fans. Due to the overload of questions and the amount of cast members who were online to answer them, I wasn’t able to catch all of the questions and answers exchanged. An hour after the first episode of Vikings Season 2, there was time to ask questions. Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick and George Blagden took part in the event an hour before the launch on Twitter. After the launch they came back on Twitter to engage fan reactions. Where Alexander and Alyssa took part on Us-tream.
The following is a small sample of the questions asked and the answers from the cast.
Clive Standen (Rollo)
Q: Did you take anything from the set?
“That’s for me to know and History to never find out!”
Q: What is your favorite line?
“All things begin and end as stories”
Q:Do you study mythology before? Did you have to learn a lot of new things? (Stunts, tricks, and martial arts)
“Always learning…Norse mythology SO vast it’s ongoing. Had a whole day of stunt training today-lucky if I come out of ep1 alive!”
Alyssa Sutherland (Auslaug)
Q:What do you hate about Aslaug?
“Not a thing!”
Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha)
Q:Did you kept any souvenirs from Vikings?
“The offering in Season 1 for Uppsalla”
Q:What is your favorite country when you are on set?
“Ireland. For sure.”
Alexander Ludwig (Björn Season 2 Episode 3)
Q:What was the challenge in the role played by someone else and your own interpertation of Björn?
“Wow, good question I think Nathan played the role very well. Because of the time jump I was able to do my own style but always kept in mind what Nathan would do so I could create my own style of playing Björn.”
“Another challenge was that after season one became a hit the expectation where so high for season two. I saw season one on TV and liked it very much. Then coming in the second season is something very difficult.”
Q: Which character would you like most?
“Floki” “Gustaf is playing him very well. He is amazing.”
Q: Would you like to play a different character?
You can see Vikings on the History Channel.
