Vikings is the original Canadian-Irish historical drama television series created and written by Michael Hirst. What was originally planned as a miniseries eventually became a television sensation that made it reach its sixth season! The series brings us into the ethereal yet brutal world of Ragnar Lothbrok, one of the best-known Viking warriors, in his explorations and raids across the ocean.
As the episodes go by, we encounter more and more diverse characters who are put to the test as ambition and innovation rattle a civilization. But have you ever wondered how these Vikings actually look like in real life? We’ve got you covered with a list of all the different characters and what they really look like without all those grandiose costumes and bold makeup.
Gaia Weiss – Thorunn
Thorunn, initially a servant, is introduced during a dinner party held by Ragnar. Her name is actually a Norse name which could have actually been captured in wars among Norse tribes.
After being freed from slavery by Aslaug, Thorunn eventually transitions into Shield-maiden. In the first few seasons, Bjorn, though significantly above Thorunn’s status, falls madly in love with her.
