The cast of History’s critically acclaimed series Vikings has just expanded by three. The network just announced Kevin Durand, Lothaire Bluteau, and Morgane Polanski have signed on for roles in the third season of Vikings set to air next year. Filming will take place this summer on the series written and created by Michael Hirst.
Per the network’s official announcement, here’s the scoop on who the three new cast members will be playing:
– Lothaire Bluteau – Emperor Charles of France, a powerful man who views battling the Vikings as spiritual and earthly.
– Kevin Durand – The Wanderer, a mysterious man who is not what he seems.
– Morgane Polanski – Princess Gisla, the elegant, self-possessed daughter of Emperor Charles and his most trusted advisor.
Polanski, Durand, and Bluteau will be joining returning Vikings cast members Travis Fimmel as Ragnar, Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha, Clive Standen as Rollo, Alexander Ludwig as Bjorn, Jessalyn Gilsig as Siggy, Gustaf Skarsgard as Floki, and Linus Roache as Ecbert.
Vikings centers on Ragnar Lothbrok, a restless warrior and family man who longs to find and conquer new lands across the seas and claim the spoils as his own. The series portrays life in the Dark Ages, a world ruled by raiders and explorers, through the eyes of Viking society.
