Fans Are Warned A Favourite Character Will Die:
In History Channel’s Vikings fans expect death and violence. However, at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, the actor who plays the viking Rollo (Clive Standen) announced it was all over for a cast member recently on set for Season 3:
We just lost one of our favorite people.
Alexander Ludwig (who plays Bjorn) followed up with:
Someone’s going to die.
While there was no confirmation that it is definitely a main character who is going to die in Season 3 of Vikings, Standen’s suggestion it was one of the cast’s favourite people indicates it was someone fairly well known to them. But who could it be?
There have been many rumours that Athelstan (played by George Blagden) will die. However, so far, there has been no substantiated quote from any member of the cast or crew that suggests this is true. Although, the fact that George has taken on the role of Louis XIV in the new TV series Versailles, has gotten plenty of fans worried that this may mean he has left Vikings.
Considering the History Channel and Vikings writer Michael Hirst both pride themselves on programs that are based largely on actual historical facts, it is unlikely that Ragnar’s (Travis Fimmel) son Bjorn will die in Season 3 either since, historically, he supersedes his father.
This still leaves plenty of room for other characters to die though. Who do you think it will be? Let us know your predictions by commenting below!
