This is a tumblr dedicated to History Channel's first original series named "Vikings", starting 03.03.2013.
Vikings follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, the greatest hero of his age. The series tells the sagas of Ragnar's band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes.
“(As we discussed) he has not renounced his Christian belief, and nor does he completely well into Season 2. In order to stay alive he has to try fit in with his Viking hosts, so it’s not surprising that he adopts their clothing and grows his hair and so on, but what happens inside is a different matter. If I had rushed that, I would have been guilty of doing something that would’ve been wrong, but I didn’t do that. It’s very modulated, it’s an issue that keeps coming back, it’s a big issue in Season 2 and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) always refuses to believe he’s renounced his Christianity. Floki’s a Pagan fundamentalist, if I can describe him as that, and he’s very, very suspicious of Athelstan.”
