Clive Standen Talks Rollo’s Absence, Teases ‘Fiery’ Reunion Between Rollo and Bjorn

December 11, 2016

ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT – Vikings has made its triumphant return, but so far, no Rollo.

 

The History Channel show last saw the character in April’s mid-season finale, where Rollo made his allegiance clear, and battled it out with Ragnar in the waters of Frankia.

 

ET hopped on the phone with Rollo himself, Clive Standen, on Tuesday, where he dished on his character’s recent absence — and revealed that since the series’ time jump, Rollo has “seemingly everything he’s ever wanted.”

 

“He beats his brother in battle, he goes back victorious, he has this lovely princess to go home to, and a whole realm that kind of worships him as the savior of Paris,” he explained, before noting that Rollo still yearns for the Viking life. “He’s having a bit of a Viking mid-life crisis. The only difference is that in modern society, the cliché is that the man pines for his Ferrari or his Porsche, whereas Rollo is pining for a longboat to take him back to be the warrior for one last voyage as a Viking.”

 

Rollo’s allegiance to Frankia — and seeming betrayal of Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and the Vikings who came to claim the territory in the last half of the season — was a major turning point for the characters, but Standen said Rollo’s big move is completely warranted given Ragnar’s past treatment of his brother.

 

“He was kept in the shadow of Ragnar for years… There’s only so much a person can take,” he said. “When Rollo goes to Frankia, he finds people who actually respect him and worship him…He may be betraying his people, but he’s not betraying his roots. He’s still a Viking. He just has no choice but to go to Frankia and start a new life, take on a different guard, and everything that comes with that in order to accomplish his fame in the society at the time.”

‘Vikings’ Showrunner Breaks Down Ragnar Lothbrok’s Darker Side and “Upheaval” Ahead

December 11, 2016

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Michael Hirst talks to THR about Ragnar’s “unfinished business” and dark depression in the midseason return.

 
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from midseason premiere of Vikings, “The Outsider.”]

 

It seems as though Ragnar Lothbrok has lost his place in the Vikings world. At least that appears to have been the case in Wednesday’s midseason premiere of the History series.

 

“The Outsider” picked up from April’s midseason finale, in which Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) returned to Kattegat from his self-imposed exile following a time jump that aged all four of his sons with Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland): Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith), Sigurd (David Lindstron), Hvitserk (Marco Islo) and Ivar (Alex Hogh). The Kattegat that Ragnar returned to had not only developed immensely since his disappearance, but the people harbored plenty of resentment toward their king following his defeat in France and the fate of his farming colony in Wessex finally coming to light.

 

It all added up to a changed world for the famed Viking leader, one in which he had a hard time navigating his newfound place. In order to find out what’s in store for the back half of season four, how Ragnar could possibly fit in going forward and what kind of place that opens up for his sons, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with creator and showrunner Michael Hirst.

 

Was Ragnar expecting a warmer welcome?

 

He knew returning would be incredibly difficult. He was a Viking leader who was effectively defeated and then walked out on his people and his family. That would never go down very well. And actually, it could have been worse in a sense if he hadn’t been so famous. Vikings society was a meritocracy in the sense that the strongest, most successful Vikings were the ones who would be kings and the rulers. If you suffered defeat and if you were not successful, you would normally be very quickly discarded. Ragnar would not have had any illusions about his reception. But he came back because he wanted to know what had become of his sons and because he had unfinished business in England.

‘Vikings’ Midseason Premiere: EP Michael Hirst Breaks Down Ragnar’s Return

December 11, 2016

VARIETYIf you haven’t seen the first episode of the second part of Season 4 of History’s “Vikings,” read no further.

 

 

Rather than ending the first part of “Vikings” Season 4 with Ragnar’s defeat, showrunner Michael Hirst decided to show us what happens after one of the most famed Viking warriors in the world is defeated: He disappears for years, then suddenly shows up at home to find his beloved sons grown. In Wednesday’s premiere, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) got to know these boys — now men, really — and laid his plans for avenging the destruction of his settlement in England by King Ecbert (Linus Roache). Hirst called up Variety from rainy Oxfordshire to discuss Ragnar’s suicide attempt and what’s coming down the pike for his crippled son Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen).

 

The conversation between Ragnar and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) at Hedeby feels like a very long time coming. What was it about this moment in time that felt right for that conversation?

 

Ah yes, “No regrets. And every regret”? This comes up all the time at places like Comic-Con: “When are Ragnar and Lagertha going to get back together?” As much as you want that, I want that, too. That would be perfect. But I could never manage it. Their lives have taken different trajectories. And through it all, like Ragnar’s relationship with Floki, these relationships are so deep and abiding, we know that there are deep emotional bonds. In Viking terms, they would be expected to continue in Valhalla.

 

Although, as he tells Floki just before trying to hang himself, he doesn’t know if they’ll meet in Valhalla. Was that a genuine suicide attempt, or more of a dare to the gods to send him a sign?

 

There are many answers to that question. In one way it was genuine. Ragnar has come back, and though I’m sure he didn’t expect to be welcomed back with open arms, most of his children have rejected him. He’s sort of out of time now. He’s depressed. But at the same time, you could perfectly well say he’s looking for a sign. Because if he does hang himself? If you don’t die in battle, you don’t make it to Valhalla. He’s testing his destiny, he’s testing his fate. What he really has to do is go to England and check out the wreckage of his settlement and have some sort of conversation with Ecbert. The two things that brought him back were that he loves his sons and wanted to see what becomes of them. But there was unfinished business in England. In some ways he knows that’s his destiny — whatever it is, it will be deiced in England. In one way I don’t take it too seriously, it’s a momentary thing that’s brought up by meeting with Lagertha and Floki. Feeling lonely and isolated and wanting to do something about that, but also kind of knowing the gods will not allow Ragnar Lothbrok to die that way.

Vikings recap: ‘The Outsider’

Ragnar returns and no one’s happy

EW – Season 4, Ep. 11 | Aired Nov 30

 

See Ragnar Lothbrok, the great King and the wandering ghost. Once he was a young Earl, and he sat on the shores of Kattegat, and spoke words of sorrow to his dead daughter. Now he is an old man — old in experience, old in beard length, old in the measure of friends still alive against friends long dead — and he stands on the water’s edge.

 

What awaits him, this revenant soul, returned now after long years spent away? His sons do not kill him; that counts as a blessing, I suppose. “I came back because I wanted to see what has become of my sons,” he tells them, the fruit of his loins. One thing that has happened: “It would appear you have another son.” Across the sea in Wessex, there is a boy named Magnus, the product of a coupling with Queen Kwenthrith. Magnus is in Wessex, and surely Ragnar’s destiny lies there, also.
