The results of this battle will obviously have repercussions throughout history and set the stage for the arrival of a new character, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

The series creator, Michael Hirst, is currently working on 20 episodes that make up this fifth season and says that he has read the character of Jonathan Rhys Meyers for his research . He explains: “I studied the history books and I stumbled upon these warriors bishops Templar predecessors These are people who were very religious, but they put armor and fought.” . The creator says that we must not let their priestly status deceive us ! “They were crazy They believed viscerally to Christianity and its message, however, on the battlefield, they were totally berserk” .
Deepening his research, he says that a figure was particularly marked: a warrior named bishop Heahmund : “He was a man of Wessex and it will become a worthy opponent Ivar” promises Hirst, comparing the Character of Richard III. “His whole life has been driven by his deeply passionate commitments – a joker that happens to be played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who himself is a kind of joker!” We look forward to discovering the character in episode 20 of season 4 of Vikings, for which we propose you to discover the promo video . We can also expect that the character do wonders as Michael Hirst has worked with Jonathan Rhys Meyers on The Tudors . Moreover, he does not fail to emphasize that he is delighted with the energy he brings to the series. “Johnny is just perfect for this crazy character, obsessed religiously, but is also a sinner. He is a passionate guy, attracted to women. He sins, and when he sins, he is punished” . We only have one thing to add: Highly season 5!
