The series “Vikings: Valhalla” is expected on February 25 on Netflix, and will resume the story of the original series, 100 years after the events of the final season 6.
It is the creator of Vikings, Michaël Hirst, who will be at the head of this spin-off highly anticipated by fans, which will feature new essential personalities such as William the Conqueror or Leif Erikson, but also Freydis Eriksdotter and Harald Harada.
On the History channel, it was actor Travis Fimmel who burst onto the screen in the role of Ragnar Lothbrok, but also Katheryn Winnick in that of his wife, Laguertha, Clive Standen in that of Rollo, or even George Blagden in that of Athelstan. Only actor John Kavanagh, who embodies the Seer, will still be there. Who are the actors who will win in the spin-off series?
23-year-old Australian actor spotted in the series The New Adventures of Sabrina on Netlfix (he played Caliban, the prince of the Underworld, editor’s note), Sam Corlett was given the role of Leif Erickson, one of the three sons of Erik the Red. This 11th century Icelandic explorer is said to be the first European to have discovered continental North America.
The first female role was entrusted to Frida Gustavsson, a Swedish model who became the muse of several luxury brands who branched off into comedy in 2014. She had notably passed the casting to embody the character of Rey in the last Star Wars trilogy, before that it is finally entrusted to Daisy Ridley. She will play the role of Freydis Eriksdottir, Leif’s sister.
Two other actors with familiar faces will also appear on screen, with David Oakes, who starred in The Borgias and The Pillars of the Earth, as Count Godwin. Pollyanna McIntosh, who played the character of Jadis in The Walking Dead, will lend her features to Queen Ælfgifu.
