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.”

Clive Standen: ‘There’s too much sex and violence on cable shows nowadays’

June 03, 2016

DIGITAL SPY – Clive Standen – star of Vikings – has hit out at pointless sex scenes and excessive violence on cable TV shows.

 

Standen, who plays the formidable Rollo on History’s series, says that screen sex and violence are fine if they “move the story on”.

 

“I think there’s too much violence and too many sex scenes in dramas nowadays – especially on cable shows,” he told Digital Spy. “It’s a lot of noise signifying nothing. They’ve turned into moments where we go and make a cup of tea.

 

“You’ve got to almost put the audience in the battle. You’ve got to feel that some of your favourite characters are going to die at any second – that keeps it visceral and keeps it real.”

 

Standen added that he often gets injured filming the rough-and-tumble battle sequences on Vikings, but insisted he has no complaints.

 

“I get shields in the face, I got caught in the shoulder by a spear,” he revealed. “But it’s Vikings. It does exactly what it says on the tin. If you’re going to start complaining about that kind of stuff, then you’ve signed on to do the wrong job.”

 

Vikings charts the sibling rivalry between Rollo and his brother Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), with Standen admitting it’s “easy playing the jealousy” with his co-star.

Clive Standen interview – Vikings, Taken & more!

May 27, 2016

(The UK is behind a season so this article talks about Season 3 mostly)

xclive-standen-interview-image-2.jpg.pagespeed.ic.IyzduHvdxd

 

FEMALE FIRST – Critically-acclaimed series Vikings returns for its third season on HISTORY tonight, and we managed to catch some time with actor from the show Clive Standen, to chat all about where his character Rollo will be going from here.

 

We also spoke about his new lead role in the Taken television series and much more – read on to find out what he had to say…

 

What should British Vikings viewers expect from the third season of the show?

 

Well, season 1 and season 2 of Vikings was only the tip of the iceberg of what the Vikings accomplished. Now, as we go into season 3, Ragnar’s ambitions, because he’s now the king, we’re hitting the golden age of the vikings and what the vikings were famous for. They’re far and wide – it wasn’t just about England, it was about most of Europe. What’s interesting is, Ragnar now has risen through the ranks of viking society, so he is their king and he has a great responsibility that now rests on his shoulders.

 

Can you give us a little bit of a tease as to what your character Rollo will be getting up to this season?

 

Rollo’s trying to prove to his brother that the betrayal was in the past. His ambition won’t go away but I think he realises it was misplaced, that it wasn’t Ragnar that was getting in the way. He needs to find a way of existing outside of Ragnar’s shadow, but without having conflicting interests towards his brother. As usual Rollo is going to be put through the ringer. He is gonna have some major confrontations with key characters in the series, and some of these confrontations might change him forever.

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.

Morgane Polanski On Princess Gisla In Season 4

March 06, 2016

vikings-7

STARPULSE – Things are already getting bloody and complicated in the new season of History’s Vikings, and once again no one seems to be safe. So what does that mean for the French Princess Gisla, played by Morgane Polanski? Starpulse asked the actress what Season 4 holds for her character, who wasn’t in the best place at the end of Season 3.

 

“In season three, we sort of left it where her father accepted without even asking for her to marry Rollo in order for him to defend Paris if his brother attacks,” she explained. “For her that was the biggest slap in the face, that was humiliating just because he accepted without asking her. So I think her ego, it seems, is completely smashed.”

 

“In season four, we pick up at this wedding which she doesn’t want to [have], but has to happen, and then they’re going to go on a journey from there,” Morgane continued. “Stuff is going to change, twists and turns and ups and downs. And there’s been really cool stuff to discover, so I’m really excited for you guys to see it.”

 

But just because Gisla is forced into marriage with Rollo (Clive Standen), that doesn’t mean she no longer has a strength of her own.

 

“I think she is as strong as the Vikings but in a completely different way,” Morgane told us. “I think that’s what [series creator] Michael [Hirst] tried to represent, with the difference of culture of the Vikings culture and of the French culture.

 

“I think the main thing with Vikings is they are as they come. I think the French have much more layers, there’s much more I think agendas and looking over your shoulder. And I think she just adores how straightforward Rollo is, or they are, and I think she is just careful that she teaches him the different rules.
