Katheryn Winnick teases Vikings season 4

February 20, 2016

‘Major changes in infrastructure.’

 

EW – The hit History series Vikings returns Thursday for another season of head-choppin’, kingdom-conquerin’, world-discoverin’ high drama. In the wake of last season’s assault on Paris, the lead characters are spread out across the known world. To get some details on season 4, we talked to Katheryn Winnick, who plays noble shieldmaiden-turned-Earl Lagertha, about what’s ahead for the series.

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We left off with so many elements of these characters’ lives in flux. Where is Lagertha when we begin season 4?

 

KATHERYN WINNICK: Kalf, her second-in-command who usurped and betrayed her, has announced to her that he’s in love with her. So she ends up sharing the Earldom with him. Not sure if she ever fully trusts him, but there’s definitely a strong connection between the two of them. You do see her, now, coming back to Hedeby, and sharing the responsibilities and the power with Kalf. Of course, she’s a Viking, and has her own motivations of where she wants to be. Things are gonna happen. There will be major changes in the infrastructure there, some big deaths, some incredible battles.

 

Whenever I talk to creator Michael Hirst, the idea of “power” comes up: How different people use it, and what different people do with it. What do you think is really driving Lagertha now? What are her ambitions focused on?

 

What makes Lagertha different than any of the other characters is that her motivation, what drives her, is not necessarily personal. She really feels that she has to rule for the good of her people, to make decisions based on what is best for the community. You have to remember that Lagertha started off as a farmer, on a tiny farm in Kattegat. She struggles with being an Earl, with being a woman in a position of strength, being betrayed. How does she get control back? How does she deal with her sexuality? How does she deal with her family? There’s a lot of complications.

WATCH AN IGN EDITOR LEARN TO BECOME A VIKINGS SHIELDMAIDEN

February 17, 2016

IGNIt’s not as easy as it looks.

 

If there’s anyone you can hope to have teach you some tricks to become a proficient (or at least serviceable) Vikings shieldmaiden in a couple short hours, it’s Katheryn Winnick. The star of the History series had years of experience in martial arts before she ever took up the sword and shield as Lagertha, and she puts that experience to good use in the series’ impressive fight sequences.

 

As someone who doesn’t have any background in martial arts, I was pretty much starting from scratch when I headed to Vikings’ studio outside Dublin in October 2015. But Lagertha and the shieldmaidens are inarguably some of the coolest elements of Vikings, and I figured if I was getting a chance to watch some stunt training, I might as well throw myself in the mix.

Winnick is an accomplished martial artist: she achieved her first black belt at age 13, competed in the Canadian Nationals and even opened her own Tae Kwon Do studios in Toronto, Canada. Before I actually got to train with Lagertha’s shield and sword, I had to get the basics of the martial arts-based fighting style that the shieldmaidens use.

 

Clearly, I am the non-professional stuntswoman here.

‘Vikings’ Season 4 Teasers Foreshadow Bloodshed and Death — Watch the Intense Promos!

January 13, 2016

The trailer is below the cut

ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT – History Channel’s Vikings is back for a brand-new season, and ETonline has your exclusive first look!

 

After seizing victory from the jaws of defeat with an epic battle in Paris last season, Viking leader Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) returns home dangerously ill. With his health issues possibly crippling him, others seek to take over his throne — including his own wife and eldest son.

 

In one of two intense season four promos, which will debut on History Channel this week, Ragnar ominously foretells the bloodshed that awaits.

 

“Power, it’s dangerous. This, I have always known. Look at what power has given me since I invaded Paris. I found myself thinking, ‘What use this power?’” he cryptically says. “You see the problem with power is the more you have, the more others want it. And in my world, power can only be truly be built… with blood.”

 

But as the music swells and the camera pans to a close-up of his face, he settles in for the long battle ahead: “Only fools believe they can live forever by avoiding the fight. I embrace the idea of death.”
