‘Vikings’ Season 3: 10 Things We Learned From Travis Fimmel’s Reddit AMA

February 21, 2015

travis-fimmel

Travis Fimmel, who plays Ragnar Lothbrok on History’s historical drama series “Vikings,” had a Reddit AMA session Wednesday, Feb 18.

During the rare Q&A session with fans, the 35-year-old Australian actor answered wide-ranging questions about the show and his personal life. Below are 10 interesting things he shared during his AMA session.

1.       His most favorite moments from the set so far

“I liked tying Athelstan (George Blagden) up to a tree in the first year,” Fimmel wrote. “The sex scene with Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) was very enjoyable. And whenever we’re on the horses, I like that.”

2.       On who he prefers, Lagertha or Aslaug?

“I love all women equally,” he said. “Anybody in Ragnar’s family, he loves…He’s just full of love. But Ragnar’s ex-wife (Lagertha) hates him as much as his current wife (Aslaug, played by Alyssa Sutherland) does, and I’m sure his next ex-wife will hate him too.”

3.       A “Vikings” feature film may happen

“You never know!” he said when asked if there’s any chance they would make a movie based on the series. “There’s a lot of very talented people on set, and the Irish crew are very good at what they do, and you’re on set and you see the sets and costumes, and with Michael Hirst at the head of the show, I’m not surprised the show is doing well.”

Return of The Vikings: Brotherhood – In conversation with leading man Travis Fimmel

November 04, 2014

NOVEMBER 3, 2014

BY GARY COLLINSON

 

Paul Risker chats with Vikings star Travis Fimmel…

In a special week long feature to coincide with the home entertainment release of Vikings series 2, Flickering Myth sits down in conversation with the cast and creator Michael Hirst to go behind the scenes of the critically acclaimed historical drama. First up leading man Travis Fimmel a.k.a. Ragnar Lothbrok reflects on the journey so far…

 

o-VIKINGS-ON-HISTORY-TRAVIS-FIMMEL-facebook-300x200Paul Risker: Ragnar’s arc in season one is a fascinating one. He grows from explorer to having something of a swagger or arrogance about him. How does it feel playing a character with that kind of arc?

Travis Fimmel: I don’t know whether its arrogance or he just likes women. In season two he still feels righteous about what he does. He wants to help his people out, and he certainly wants to be a guy that’s known for exploring, and being the first Scandinavian to have been certain places. I think his heart is in the right place, and he’ll do anything for the people around him.

He doesn’t have many people that he can seek advice from, and so sometimes he has to say, “No, we are doing it my way.” Otherwise if he’d listen to some of the other ideas that were thrown in they wouldn’t get anywhere. A lot of the time successful people who achieve their goals sacrifice a lot of human things – family and such. There are a lot of rich people that aren’t very happy because they get rich by sacrificing a load of things, and it’s that old saying that “Money doesn’t make you happy.”

 

PR: So he’s a noble man, but with a brutal edge?

TF: [Laughs] Yeah I like that!

 

PR: I have to ask about the Blood Eagle episode which is horrific, absolutely horrific. What was your reaction when Michael told you that’s the way the story line was going to play out?

TF: Oh I loved it, and it was shot so well by Kari Skogland – beautifully shot and beautifully written. Thorbjørn Harr is such a great actor, and it’s stuff like that makes our show a bit different. We can’t show everything that happens, and so they need to be clever how they shoot things. You can’t show cutting lungs out and such, but it’s amazing how they can portray that by being smart about it.

 

PR: The first season is focused on introducing the characters and the world to the audience. At the end of the first and on into the second season you don’t have to play it safe, and you are able to play around with things a little more. Is there a feeling of liberation when making that transition from the first to the second season?

TF: Well every actor hates exposition, and some actors really like lines. So it’s much easier the more seasons you do because everybody knows the characters, which makes it so much more enjoyable; more relationship driven. You don’t have to explain everything, and the audience are smarter than any of us. There is stuff that the audience pick up in a show that we miss. But exposition comes from way above the people here and production. There are people that think, oh the audience don’t get this, but the audience get it better than anybody – it comes from higher up.

 

PR: Do you ever think of the audience when you are on set?

TF: Always.

A Couple of Questions for Vikings Fans

October 14, 2014

First of all, I’m alikat7 and I created a new website called Vikings Fan (really original, aren’t I? lol) I’m trying to make this site a go-to place for all of the Vikings fans to get the most up-to-date information and photos, but I was curious to know a few things:

1. Would anyone be interested in a forum to meet other fans and discuss the show if I added it on the fansite? 

2. Would you be more willing to contribute fanart to the site if I set up the gallery so you could create your own galleries and add the art yourself? Or would you be more likely if you just email it to me and I add it in an album with your name? (which is how I originally thought it best but I’m willing to consider other ideas)

3. If I were to do fanvideo and fanart contests, would people contribute and participate?

Please feel free to give your feedback and if you can’t fit it all in a message, you can email me at admin@vikings-fan.com.

Also, please stop by the site and let me know what you think! And follow us on here and on Twitter: http://twitter.com/vikingsfansite

I’d love to affiliate with the Vikings blogs on here so hit me up if you’re interested.

Vikings’ Ragnar Lothbrok is the true hero modern antiheroes misunderstand

October 07, 2014

Go back to look forward

By Dennis Perkins @dennisperkins5
Oct 6, 2014

Vikings’ 2013 arrival saw it lumped in with the so-called “white male antihero” TV glut, and not without reason. As a genre, such shows are, at heart, wish-fulfillment fantasies where an American man can shuck off the emasculating trappings of modern domesticity and thrill, however covertly, to the actions of “real men.”In Tony Soprano’s first therapy session with Dr. Melfi, he invokes the “strong silent type” (personified in his mind by Gary Cooper) and The Sopranos is informed by Tony’s interpretation of what that essential manliness entails. Walter Whitecouched his escalating lawlessness in familial concern, but as he finally confided to Skyler at series’ end, he became the biggest meth lord in America simply because he liked it. As Heisenberg, Walter could forget his perceived failures as a husband, father, and provider and stride manfully among the criminal underworld. Sons Of Anarchy trucks heavily in the idea that outlaw bikers, breaking from the strictures of civilized society, are both freer and more truly men than, say, the viewer with a mortgage and a minivan. Even in a period piece like Mad Men, Don Draper sees his unfiltered-cigarette-smoking, whiskey-swilling, fanny-pinching present as missing something—and looks to the past, as seen in the repeated motif of cowboys and astronauts.
