Monks, Warriors, and Floki, oh my! Meet the characters of History’s VikingsPosted 9:17 am on Tuesday, February 12th, 2013 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
The History Channel’s first scripted drama, Vikings, is less than a month away. To get a better understanding on what the show is about, here are descriptions and promo videos for some of the supporting characters on the show. We have Rollo the brother, Athelstan the monk, and Floki the crazy boat maker.
Rollo (Clive Standen), Ragnar Rothbrok’s impulsive, wild and carefree brother whose loyalty is at times questionable but his skills as a warrior are formidable.
Athelstan (George Blagden), a young and innocent Christian monk whose world is turned upside down by the shocking culture brought on by the Vikings.
Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard), a design genius and close friend of Ragnar’s who helps the charismatic Viking fulfill his dreams of discovering new lands and civilizations through his visionary boat designs.
Vikings premieres March 3rd at 10/9c on History.
