Winnick also shared that when she first joined Vikings she “had an idea that I was going to be there for the long haul. I did not know that my character was going to last till the end.”
“I read the first two episodes and being a huge fan of Michael Hirst, I got the chance to Skype with him, and have his story unfold in a way that he saw.
“He definitely saw multiple seasons and he was ready for it and planned for it. So I knew that it was going to go for a long time, but originally I was told a couple of years maybe three,” said the actress.
“I think I had five or six days after I got hired to get on a plane and move my entire life to Ireland, and I prepared for it, I really did.”
Vikings season 6, part 2 is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
