Trivia: Vikings

  • Actor Allusion: Vladimir Kulich is a badass Viking yet again.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Ivan Kaye who plays King Ælle played Ivar the Boneless in Hammer of the Gods.
  • I Knew It: Anyone who remembered Ragnar's death in the saga and the Seer's prophecy knew that Ragnar was not actually dying.
  • Name's the Same: Leif is the son of Erik, which technically makes him Leif Eriksson. He obviously isn't that Leif Eriksson.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Clive Standen originally auditioned for the part of Ragnar, but actually wanted Rollo. Travis Fimmel then came along and was cast as Ragnar and Clive Standen got to be Rollo instead. So in the end, everybody got what they wanted.
    • The show was originally about Alfred the Great fighting the Great Heathen Army.
    • Ragnar was supposed to die in season 1. Thank God they didn't do that.
