Vikings season 5: What place for Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the series?

Cinema 14 January, 2017

While the role of actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was unveiled for season 5 of Vikings, one wonders about its importance in the show of History.
A recruit of choice! A few weeks ago, it was learned that the series Vikings, whose History channel is now broadcasting the fourth season, was going to add a little more to its cast by welcoming the Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers. His name may have told you nothing, but his face is not unknown to you, it was especially the main character of the film Match Point directed by Woody Allen , in which he shared the stage with Scarlett Johansson. But fans of TV series also know him as King Henry VIII in The Tudors or as Dracula in the eponymous series. While the role of Jonathan Rhys Meyers in season 5 was unveiled Vikings with a first photo , it is expected that this pretty face does everything except the numbers in the series. But it is still necessary that its role allows it.
And yes, we know that Jonathan Rhys Meyers will incarnate a bishop named Heahmund, who will be the right arm of Aethelwulf, the son of King Ecbert. Historical figure that really existed, Heahmund is hardly recognized as having played a primordial role in the war against the Vikings. Above all, most fans had rather relied on the fact that Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays an adult version of Alfred, or even of Magnus the son of Queen Kwentrith. Should we be disappointed, however? Well no ! Indeed the creator of Vikings Michael Hirst recently described Heahmund as one of the forerunners of the Templar Order. To make it short, the Templars had in their ranks of warrior monks, not really followers of nonviolence . We must therefore expect to see our friend John participate in several confrontations we imagine already epic against Ivar or Bjorn, who are vying to become the worthy successor of SPOILERS Vikings in season 4 . He will disembark from season 4, in his final season. Quickly!
