The audience for Vikings: Valhalla can expect many epic and bloody battles, as the struggle for survival will be one of the main themes of the narrative. Sam Corlett’s character, for example, is Leif Eriksson, a very famous historical figure.
In the official synopsis of the series, he is described as a young man from a close-knit family, immersed in ancient pagan beliefs, as well as being an intrepid and physically strong sailor.
Frida Gustavsson plays Freydís Eiríksdóttir, whose main characteristics are obstinacy and a firm belief in the ancient gods. Like her brother, Leif, she comes to Kattegat as an outsider, but becomes an inspiration to everyone automatically.
Remember that the 6th season of Vikings recently debuted and ended the series in a very impressive way.
However, we can only wait for more news related to production on Netflix!
