While initially she didn’t think she was going to be on the show for this long, Winnick is happy she stayed.
She said of her experience: “As an actor that has been a creative experience for me, to have been able to dive into a full journey as Lagertha as a farmer and now as a grandmother.”
When it came time for Lagertha to leave, Hirst “didn’t necessarily want me to go”, said the actress.
“But there has to be a time where if I am gonna go, let’s write me something fantastic and amazing and I couldn’t ask for a better ending, ever.”
Vikings season 6, part 2 is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
