Alexander Ludwig Gets Big Plotline On History’s Vikings

Canadian actor Alexander Ludwig told The Canadian Press that he has been waiting for four years to have a bigger, more prominent role on the popular History show Vikings.

“This is what I was promised, this season, and I stayed on it for this reason, for (season) 4-B,” he said to The CP. “It’s some of the best work I think I’ve ever done and I’m just very happy for the whole audience to get to see a side of Bjorn that I don’t think anybody really knew existed.”

The Vancouver native plays warrior Bjorn Ironside. The second-half of Season 4 kicks off on November 30th with 10 more episodes. It was renewed for a fifth season this past March just prior to the Season 4 premiere. Vikings airs on Wednesday at 9pm on History.
