Diarmaid Murtagh Is Leif
Leif was a Viking warrior who joined Ragnar Lothbrok’s war band in the exploration westward. Like his father, Erik, Leif is a veritable giant of a man, among the tallest and largest of his Viking comrades.
As a brave warrior and loyal friend of Ragnar Lothbrok, he went on both expeditions to Northumbria. He chose himself to be sacrificed in place of Athelstan because he wanted the best for his people and their new leader, Earl Ragnar Lothbrok.
As a trusted companion of Ragnar Lothbrok, Leif held the status of a Skutilsvein (table-man), an officer with an Earl’s Hird (warband and household guard).
Diarmaid Murtagh was born in Kingscourt, County Cavan, Ireland. He is an actor, known for Dracula Untold (2014), The Monuments Men (2014) and Good People (2014).
Murtagh spent much of his early career on stage and in many English and Irish TV productions, but has since taken his career to the big screen, starring in productions such as ‘Monuments Men’ and ‘Good People’ and with his latest role in ‘Dracula Untold’ to add to his accomplishments.
