Son of Ragnar. Perhaps the most famous Viking of all time, his pathological cruelty was notorious even during his own lifetime. Ivar is deeply ambitious and his ambitions will twist the legacy of his father out of shape, and create universal war. People are genuinely afraid of Ivar.
Alex Høgh Andersen
Born and raised in a small town southwest of Copenhagen, Alex Hogh Andersen discovered his love for acting while studying drama at a school for young children between the age of 7 and 19. It was there he learned the basics of acting including the discipline, focus, and teamwork it takes to succeed in the business. Andersen participated in many musical oriented plays and was fortunate to gain a lot of experience with many big roles. As his peers began auditioning for film roles, Anderson at age 17 realized the difference between acting roles in front of an audience versus in front of a camera. This translated into Andersen’s work and he began auditioning and continuing to study Film and Media Studies at the University of Copenhagen. Andersen appeared in numerous television and film projects in Denmark, and Vikings now marks his Hollywood debut.
When he is not acting, Andersen enjoys spending much of his time focusing on photography. He considers himself a visual minded person; he continues to learn more and more about cameras due to his experience shooting and directing short films. Andersen also gives back when his has the chance to charities such as Unicef, Care Denmark, and Kræftensbekæmpelse (Fighting Cancer). He deeply relates to Fighting Cancer as his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago.
