'Vikings' star discusses show, last episode (SPOILERS)


History has a hit on its hand with Vikings, its new series that looks at .... uhhh... vikings. And not the terrible football kind from Minnesota - I am talking about the Germanic vikings.

Travis Fimmel stars on the series as Rangar Lothbrok, who has seen his character rise from a farmer into something much great in the show's first season already. This week's episode (SPOILERS) saw Ragnar taking down Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Bryne) in a brutal manner, which led to Ragnar's promotion to the head of the clan.

"I was actually upset that I fought the earl. He is such a great actor, Gabriel Byrne. I didn't want to kill him. I loved him on the show, and he was amazing to work with," Fimmel said, adding about the steel swords use that, "Gabriel was amazing, but it scares you on your fingers when you hear the ting."

Tensions are emerging as well, as Rangar's wife Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), had a miscarriage.

"Ragnar is very upset when he finds out about his child dying," he said. "It's a boy, he believes, and he wants his legacy, he wants to have a lot of boys. It really affects him when he loses his son."

Vikings airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. on History. Have you seen it yet? Any thoughts?

 Hi Hamatosan

Scandinavians were not a part of the North Germanic lingusitic area. This is a common misunderstanding. In Norway there are two Hansa cities, for a commercial alliance in the 1500's. Scandinavian Vikings went on expeditions to Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Uk and USA was  discovered by vikings from scandinavian. But they were never a part of the Germanic lingustic area. Closest they got was under Napoleon, but he is French

Olavb, the Scandinavians were part of the North Germanic lingusitic area and were considered Germanic people in that timeframe.

Enjoyed Vikings a lot more than I thought I would. The series could have been a bit longer. Sad to see it go.
