To celebrate the eagerly-anticipated release of Vikings: Valhalla, the new show from the world of Vikings, we sat down with its eclectic cast to find out all about the new Netflix show.
Set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century, VIKINGS: VALHALLA chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter). As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings begin an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, as they fight for survival and glory
We had the pleasure of chatting to Leo Suter (Harald Sigurdsson), Sam Corlett (Leif Eriksson), Frida Gustavsson (Freydis Eiriksdottir), Caroline Henderson (Jarl Haakon) David Oakes (Earl Godwin), Laura Berlin (Emma of Normandy), Johannes Hakur Johannesson (Olaf “the Holy” Haraldsson) and Bradley Freegard (King Canute “the Great”) – phew – about the show, stepping back in time out of 21st-century life and working with Jeb Stewart, who co-wrote Die Hard.
