Vikings Season 4 will see Queen Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) enjoy a very prominent place. The Vikings star got together with Stuart Brazell, in the Sofitel Hotel in West Hollywood and discussed her role in the History Channel series and what her character will face in the current season.
The Vikings as depicted in the television series created by Michael Hirst deal with the farmer turned warrior king Ragnar Lothbrok and his conquests and wars. The story is gritty and grimy and is full of bloody battles.
The Vikings are men who are believed to not have any fear and will go to any extent to kill their enemies and are tough and strong. However, Alyssa Sutherland while talking about her male co-stars in the Vikings joke about how they are so masculine on screen, but the moment the camera starts rolling would start complaining about their hair extensions.
This might be interesting to the fans who watch the Vikings on their television screen and have just seen the fourth season of the series to start off with a bloody battle. Rollo (Clive Standen) has remained back in Paris to marry Emperor Charles’ (Lothaire Bluteau) daughter Princess Gisla.
He has always led a life overshadowed by his powerful and popular elder brother, Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel). Rollo upon getting the opportunity to stay in the French court realizes that he will have to mark out his space in the foreign land.
In order to make his presence felt he will have to play the mind game and win over the royal court and the princess. Rollo plans of occupying the French court someday and keeping this in mind, he decides to kill off all the Vikings who have stayed back in Paris.
Rollo sheds his Vikings attired and goes for a more sophisticated look where he cuts off his hair and dresses like a noble man. While he thinks that this will please his wife, Princess Gisla, she is amused and laughs out loud in his presence.
Rollo hoped that his Frankish makeover would be able to make Gisla change her mind towards Rollo. Gisla had been forced to marry the barbarian against her own wish and she isn’t happy with the husband she has landed with. The makeover does no good to her since she hates Rollo and find comic relief in his changed look.
On the other hand, there is a rumor that Rollo will have bad days coming his way since Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) hasn’t taken the fact that he had betrayed his father, Ragnar, very easily. Bjorn in hell bent in seeking revenge from Rollo and knowing Bjorn, they are pretty sure that Rollo will soon be facing the scorn of Bjorn.
According to Christian Post, there is a rumor that the brothers Rollo and Ragnar will also meet in a bloody battle soon enough. Rollo has betrayed Ragnar, again and again and this time, before he can create more havoc for the Vikings along with the French army, Ragnar will decide on putting an end to Rollo once and for all.
Ragnar is back from Paris wounded and he realizes that Bjorn has taken Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) under custody for the murder of Athelstan (George Blagden). Floki is a noted ship-builder and a very dear of Ragnar, and this trail will test his limits when it comes to choosing between his duty as a king and a friend.
