What the cast of Vikings looks like in real life

Everybody realizes that the give of Vikings looks a role as attractive as Thor while canvassed in mud and blood. Be that as it may, strip away all the furious cosmetics, finely-tuned hairdos, and unpredictable tattoos, and these Norse warriors are much the same as whatever is left of us… if, apparently, we were all excellent clothing models, dark belts, makers' youngsters, or individuals from on-screen character filled families. Without a doubt, they look like it while fitting directly into the Viking Age of history. However, this is what these 21st-century on-screen characters look like, in actuality, and additionally where they indeed originate from.

Travis Fimmel - Ragnar Lothbrok

Travis Fimmel - Ragnar Lothbrok
Travis Fimmel may resemble a Viking lord, with his blonde facial hair and striking blue eyes. However, the performer and model don't really hail from the northlands of Scandinavia. Or maybe, he originated from down under and was raised on his family's homestead in Echuca, Australia. In truth, before he needed to do whatever else, he had dreams of turning into an expert Australian guidelines footballer — which mostly clarifies why he has such a simple build on the war zone. 

Fimmel's additionally got a Viking body since he's a rec center rodent. Indeed, he was pumping iron when he got haphazardly spotted by a headhunter, who had him fly out to California with just $60 in his pocket. He was marked on the spot by LA MODELS, and in the long run, handled an exceedingly lucrative arrangement — worth upwards of six figures — with Calvin Klein. 

Even though he never again dons old man Ragnar's shaved head and ZZ Top whiskers, Fimmel's staying with History (channel, that is).

Corral's gunslingin' Wyatt Earp on the new arrangement's first scene, while likewise filling in as the show's official producer. "Travis is a striking performer," said History's SVP of scripted programming, Arturo Interian, "and were regarded to proceed with our association with him after his ongoing attractive execution on Vikings." 

Presently, if just they'd put Fimmel's most amazingly simple murder face on a Calvin Klein bulletin.

Katheryn Winnick - Lagertha
The on-screen character who plays the renegade shield-lady Lagertha, Katheryn Winnick, is really a Canadian of Ukrainian drop. It's trusted the Vikings extended similarly to Canada and Kiev. Incident? Try not to think so. To be sure, Winnick resembles a Viking, with her bleach blonde hair — which, on the show, is regularly integrated with executioner styles — and icy blue eyes. Indeed, it's anything but painful to contend that Winnick is the most notably Viking-looking on-screen character on the whole show, regardless of whether she doesn't generally hail from Scandinavia. 

Vikings are in no way, shape or form Winnick's first gig. The blonde stunner has additionally shown up on the extra large screen, with parts in Stand Up Guys, Failure to Launch, Love and Other Drugs, Killers, and The Dark Tower.

"I have a third-degree dark belt in Tae Kwon Do and a second-degree dark belt in Karate." She's likewise an authorized protector and self-preservation educator. So don't mess with Earl Ingstad.

Alexander Ludwig - Björn Ironside

Alexander Ludwig - Björn Ironside
Through the span of the show's run, Vikings fans have viewed Ragnar Lothbrok's firstborn child grow up from a somewhat genuine momma's kid to hold up under executing badass. As his character has matured, we've seen on-screen character Alexander Ludwig go from wearing some extraordinarily essential hair and peach fluff whiskers to a shaved head — spare one additional since quite a while ago, meshed pigtail — and a furious striking facial hair. All things considered, Ludwig keeps whiskers going. However, he doesn't stroll around California with a midsection long Viking pigtail — except if, that is, he mystically conceals it under his caps. By the by, despite everything, he seems as though one jacked Viking you wouldn't have any desire to disturb. 

Even though Ludwig clearly didn't play the kid rendition of Björn in History's epic arrangement (that would be Nathan O'Toole), he has been acting since he was a youngster.

Clive Standen - Rollo

Clive Standen - Rollo
Rollo is — or, in any event, was — a standout amongst the most fearsome Vikings on Vikings, known for going crazy, turning tides on the combat zone, popping enchantment mushrooms, and having his way with ladies. Furthermore, he generally looked like it, with long, dim hair and a rugged facial hair giving him the presence of a bear-turned-man. In actuality, in any case, Clive Standen looks less savage, as he tends to remain sharp with short, clean hair and finely-trimmed whiskers. 

In any case, don't let that perfect shaven appearance trick you. The performer has been riding steeds, jousting, and sword battling since youth, and is likewise, as indicated by History, a Muay Thai boxing master, and fencing gold medalist — meaning you wouldn't have any desire to challenge Standen on any war zone, Viking or not. His renegade range of abilities — which even incorporates tumbling and contemporary move — has prompted other parts as Gawain on Camelot, Ed Viesturs in Everest, and Bryan Mills on the TV series Taken. 

Even though Standen in some cases resembles a homicidal, mushroom-impacted berserker, he's really a major softie. As the dad of three, Standen claims that — notwithstanding being a warrior — he's additionally a specialist tickler. "I'm an evil presence stimulate beast," he told People. "I get [my kids] in a stimulate bolt, and they can't get out. It resembles UFC tickling." over that, he also knows "everything there is to think about American Girl dolls." Sounds like Rollo, okay… in any event, after he turned Frank.

Gustaf Skarsgård - Flóki

Gustaf Skarsgård - Flóki
As his name implies, Gustaf Caspar Orm Skarsgård is one of Vikings' only evident Scandinavians. However, he looks significantly less fearsome, in actuality. While Flóki is well known for brandishing a facial hair and that notorious crying cosmetics — which, for sure, influences him to look a long way from rational —  Skarsgård remains clean-shaven and proficient, much the same as whatever is left of his on-screen character filled family. 

In case we're in the matter of ranking Skarsgårds, Gustaf would need to be third. His father, Stellan Skarsgård, is effortlessly the most acclaimed of the family, having played Professor Gerald Lambeau in Good Will Hunting, Bootstrap Bill Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Bill Anderson in Mamma Mia!, Martin Vanger in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Captain Tupolev in The Hunt for Red October, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Dr. Erik Selvig in Thor, The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Even though Skarsgård has himself won a Guldbagge Award for Best Leading Actor for his part in for his part in Förortsungar, playing the tall Viking pontoon manufacturer on History's series is the performer's individual genuine distinguishing strength — outside of Scandinavia, that is.

Alyssa Sutherland - Queen Aslaug

Alyssa Sutherland - Queen Aslaug
Assuming the part of Queen Aslaug, the girl of Viking legends Brynhildr and Sigurd, Alyssa Sutherland has a standout amongst the most exciting appearances on the show. She is tall, thin, looks entirely dissimilar for some other cast part, and can entrance even a Viking ruler with her staggering looks — all attributes not out of the ordinary in an acclaimed, genuine mold demonstrate. 

Sutherland made her model begin when Cadbury resuscitated its famous "Chip Girl" promoting effort — an utterly enormous part for any youthful model in Australia — which highlighted Sutherland eating a chocolate bar, backward time, in a convertible, in the rain. She has been included in battles for such brands as Bulgari, Calvin Klein, Chanel, and Kérastase, among others, notwithstanding showing up on the front of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, D – la Repubblica Delle Donne, and Madison. 

Her acting vocation hasn't been unusually broad. However, she landed parts in The Devil Wears Prada and Day on Fire. Less quiet, she showed up on one scene of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, notwithstanding showing up on Australia's Next Top Model — you know… because she is, undoubtedly, one of Australia's best models. Very few models make the fruitful progress to acting like Sutherland as of now has, so we'll need to keep a watch out if this Vikings star lands more original parts later on.

Maude Hirst - Helga

Maude Hirst - Helga
Maude Hirst plays Helga, the delightful however understandable spouse of Flóki, the boatbuilder. Even though she never dons the shield-lady hairdos of Lagertha, nor does she have Aslaug's capacity to charm men, Hirst all things considered resembles an adoring Viking with her long blonde hair and kind face. 

Hirst really made her demonstration achievement on the prevalent sixteenth century recorded drama The Tudors. However, she without a doubt had some help. Her father is Michael Hirst, the author, and maker of Elizabeth, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Tudors and — apparently — Vikings. She doesn't credit her dad for getting her into the acting business, though. "I was constantly inventive," she told View of the Arts. "I didn't grow up much with my dad. I was raised by my mum who is a craftsman, and that is the thing that presumably affected my inventiveness." 

Truth be told, Hirst was initially keen on acrobatic yet acknowledged acting may be in her future subsequent to being spotted by a throwing chief exploring gymnasts for an up and coming film. While there's no uncertainty Hirst merits the part of Helga, it inevitably never damages to have your dad as the show's maker.
