Clive Standen talks Rollo’s big showdown

April 23, 2016

One brother rises, one brother falls

vikings-recap_612x380

Entertainment Weekly  – Season 4 has been a transformative period for Rollo, brother of Ragnar. Having long grown used to living in his brother’s shadow, Rollo betrayed his Viking brethren, allying with the Franks and defending Paris against a new attack from the Northmen. In Thursday’s midseason finale, Rollo met his brother in the field of battle. And the results were bloody. We talked to actor Clive Standen about what led up to this — and what the finale means for his Rollo.SPOILERS, natch!

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It feels like the whole show has led up to the moment when Rollo faces off against Ragnar. What do you think is going through Rollo’s mind, in that moment?

 

CLIVE STANDEN: It’s never been about betraying Ragnar. It’s about existing. Michael [Hirst] and I always held onto this old Swedish proverb: “One wants to be loved, in lack thereof admired, in lack thereof feared, in lack thereof loathed and despised. One wants to instill some sort of emotion in people. The soul trembles before emptiness and desires contact at any price.” We talked about that in season one. He just wants to fit in. He just wants to be acknowledged by his brother.

VIKINGS CREATOR ON ROLLO’S NEW HAIR AND EPIC QUEEN OF MERCIA

February 28, 2016

IGN – That. Hair. A lot happened in “Kill the Queen,” but the scene-stealing moment was the debut of Clive Standen’s new Rollo hair cut — or just how many of his long locks he’d lost. Add on to that the action-packed rescue sequence at the end with Queen Kwenthrith, and there was plenty to talk about from this week’s Vikings.

 

To break down the episode, showrunner Michael Hirst got on the phone to discuss Rollo’s new look, the upcoming payoff for the contentious relationship between him and his wife and the joys of writing for Kwenthrith.

 

IGN: In this episode, Rollo loses his long hair, and we see that new wig and new look. It’s such a funny scene. How did you find that specific look for Clive, and how did he respond to it?

 

Hirst: I did always think [about] the possibility of how comedic an aspect of a culture clash between Franks and Vikings [could be] in the marriage. It’s not a deliberate “We can lighten the mood here,” but misunderstandings are always comedic, and they don’t speak the same language. So the Vikings are almost animals, so I was going to write that in to have a comedic aspect.

 

But still, there’s a sort of logic to it, which is not just about history. So she hates him. She thinks he’s an animal. They go to bed on their wedding night, and there’s this misunderstanding, because they don’t understand each other, and she hates him. But then when he goes to sleep, she hates him even more. Actually, that’s the funny thing, that you’d have thought she’d want him to go to sleep or go away, but actually when he goes to sleep and he ignores her, that’s the moment that she goes most cross. So there’s a kind of human moment there which is not historical but is just about how people behave towards each other. And then of course their relationship will develop from a very low point.

 

IGN: There’s a payoff in a couple episodes that’s so good.

 

Hirst: Yeah, yeah! I think so. It’s an unexpected payoff, ultimately, and it gets better actually. But everyone likes a bit of comedic lightness. It’s not like you don’t want to give them that, but you can’t cynically do something, but it did seem like an opportunity to have some fun at the expense of people who aren’t understanding each other and who are from different cultures and all that. It also reminds the audience, I think, that, you know, we’re talking old Norse and old Frankish — these are dead languages — but these are languages that people actually spoke. For me, it makes them more human. They stop being just historical characters. It’s just a man and a woman in bed who aren’t understanding each other.

Rollo does the unthinkable in the ‘Vikings’ Season 4 premiere

February 20, 2016

ZAP2IT – While those that have been watching “Vikings” since it’s series premiere may not be all that surprised to see Rollo (Clive Standen) taking up arms against his own brother in Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), the first episode of Season 4 painted the darkest picture of the berserker warrior yet.

 

Not only has Rollo turned his back on Ragnar, but in aligning with Paris he’s declared war on his own kind. This is such a dramatic shift from the Rollo fans have come to love and — in a strange way — it makes him the central villain of the series.

 

To turn on his own people, having them slaughtered en masse — men, women and children — is truly a deed that will not be forgiven. Perhaps it’s not forgiveness he’s seeking, though. As creator Michael Hirst told Zap2it, “Rollo is in Paris trying to figure out if it’s true that the gods think his destiny is to be a Frankish noble.”

 

This is him asserting himself in that role, even if it makes him the sworn enemy of everyone he’s ever known.

 

The question is what will happen once Ragnar finds out what’s happened. Though he doesn’t necessarily trust his brother — Rollo’s tried to usurp his power before — surely this deed goes beyond anything he could have imagined.

 

“You have betrayed your own kind, Rollo’s last real ally in the vikings camp tells him as he slowly dies. “But we shall be revenged. Ragnar is coming! Ragnar will revenge us.”
