‘Vikings’ Star Discusses Surprise Death: I Was Ready for a “New Challenge”

December 27, 2016

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER[Warning: This story contains spoilers from last Wednesday’s episode of Vikings, “In the Uncertain Hour Before the Morning.”]

 

It took a few decades, but Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) finally got her revenge on History’s Vikings. After losing her husband Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and her entire world to the princess Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) way back in the show’s second season, Lagertha has spent many years plotting her moves and building herself up as a female leader in the Viking world.

 

But it was on Wednesday night’s hour that Lagertha took her biggest move of all, when she stormed back into Kattegat while Ragnar and her son Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) were away. Once there, she shot her nemesis in the back with an arrow, despite Aslaug attempting to bargain her way to safe passage by reminding Lagertha that her four sons, including the mentally unhinged Ivar (Alex Hogh), would avenge her death.

 

“Aslaug took away Lagertha’s husband, love, belief, future, everything. And so she was always bound to do something about it,” showrunner Michael Hirst tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Lagertha wouldn’t be Lagertha unless she did that. And by doing it of course she challenges the gods because she knows that revenge is basic to Viking society, and the sons of Aslaug will be damned to try and avenge their mother. So she makes this huge decision, but it’s a decision to kill that was based on her love for Ragnar.”

 

To break down the behind-the-scenes events leading up to Aslaug’s final days and to find out more about the tumultuous Aslaug-Ragnar relationship, THR caught up with Sutherland. Here the model and actress talks about how she was “ready for Aslaug to be done,” whether she’d ever return to the show and her next project, Spike’s The Mist.

 

Did you always know that Aslaug’s days were numbered?

Interview Magazine – Travis Fimmel

December 21, 2016

 

INTERVIEW – In a lot of ways, Travis Fimmel is an easy person to talk to. He’s kind and polite, and quick to deflect the conversation back onto you: Where did you grow up? Did you like it? Would you go back permanently? When we meet in person on a rainy day in New York, he seems keen to keep an abnormal situation—an interview in which a stranger is asking you personal questions about your profession —as normal and reciprocal as possible.

 

The youngest of three boys, Fimmel grew up on a cattle farm in Australia, and lived in London for a while before settling in Los Angeles to become an actor. His early career had plenty of false starts, and he famously became a model in the early 2000s so he could extend his U.S. visa. Since he made his debut as Ragnar Lothbrook, the protagonist of Vikings, almost four years ago, however, things have been going very smoothly. In the past year, for example, he played a hapless hippy in Rebecca Miller’s screwball comedy Maggie’s Plan and starred in the video game adaptation Warcraft: The Beginning, which though a domestic disappointment grossed almost $400 million overseas. He just finished working with Chloë Sevigny and Steven Buscemi in Lean on Pete, the new film from 45 Years writer-director Andrew Haigh, and completed Finding Steve McQueen with Forest Whitaker and Lily Rabe. Next year, he will film Inversion opposite Samuel L. Jackson.

 

But Vikings is still the project everyone is buzzing about. It has long been suggested that, at some point, Ragnar’s sons will replace him in the main narrative, and, after April’s mid-season finale, it seemed like the time had come. When we left Ragnar seven months ago, he had been decimated in battle by his brother Rollo and had walked away from his kingdom. Now, however, Ragnar is back and keen for revenge.

Alexander Ludwig Talks Bjorn’s ‘Power Play’ and ‘Transition’ Out of Ragnar’s Shadow

December 19, 2016

 

Three episodes into the season four return of Vikings, audiences are getting a good look at how the show’s characters have evolved since Ragnar’s disappearance — starting with Bjorn.

 

ET hopped on the phone with Alexander Ludwig on Tuesday, who dished on his character’s new leadership skills, and what lies ahead for Ragnar’s firstborn as the Viking leader loses his spark.

 

First things first, we had to ask the Hunger Games star about his character’s noticeable transformation since the series’ time jump.

 

“It’s been a really long, grueling process of making this character,” explained Ludwig, who was 21 when he joined season two of the series as teenage Bjorn. “Playing a boy when you’re a man yourself is really tough, so it’s nice to finally be able to play something that is in my range. I waited so long to be able to do this, so I’m happy that it’s resonating.”

 

Bjorn’s longer beard isn’t the only sign of change in the character — he’s also seemed to grow confidence, power and leadership in Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) absence.

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’ Boss Says Season 4B Is “Monumental” as “Change Is in the Air”

July 23, 2016

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERCreator Michael Hirst previews a season “unlike anything we’ve ever done,” plus watch the new trailer.

 

A new generation of Vikings are about to rise. The History drama used its platform Friday at Comic-Con to unveil the trailer for the second half of its fourth season. And judging from the new footage, the winds are beginning to change.

 

The trailer (below) showcases Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) returning to Kattegat after a long absence and teases how his various sons deal with his reappearance in their lives. “[He brings] calamity, chaos, tragedy and death … you should curse the day,” The Seer (John Kavanagh) warns Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) before the clip flashes to scenes of death and destruction.

 

Of course this is Vikings, so death and destruction are just a typical day for these people. Seeing Ragnar and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) lock lips, however, or following Bjorn to the Mediterranean, is not. THR caught up with creator and showrunner Michael Hirst to dissect some of the promo’s juicier bits ahead of the show’s anticipated fall return.

 

There’s imagery of changing winds in this promo — what does that mean for the season?
