There are many kinds of shows that have turned our heads over the years. Sitcoms, soap operas, comedies – there is no end to the list. However, there is one that can see us taking a step back in time every time we switch on the TV. That’s right; we’re talking about historical dramas. Shows such as The Tudors, The Last Kingdom, and Downton Abbey have all kept us hooked over the years.
After all, it’s not every day that we get to take a look at what life was like all those years ago. Rather than wondering, we can now enjoy the scenes brought to life in front of our very eyes. Although there have been many historical dramas over the years, there is one that has kept us hooked with the gripping storylines and epic battles. Vikings. It seems as though the actresses have more to say than just their scripts. In fact. These women of Vikings are nailing it on Instagram.
Vikings premiered back in March 2013. Although it was first broadcast as a miniseries, it has since become a fully-fledged show of its own. The story follows the life of Ragnar Lothbrok (played by Travis Fimmel) as he dreams of conquering distant lands. It isn’t until he joins forces with Floki (played by Gustaf Skarsgard) that the pair can build a fleet of ships capable of taking over the northern seas.
While we get to see some fairly epic battles and bloodshed, we also get to witness the relationship between Ragnar and the rest of his family. Will anyone ever be able to stand up to the Viking warrior? Thankfully, there is still plenty of time to find out as the show has the remaining half of season five to air, and season six has already been confirmed.
We have spent five years getting to know and falling in love with the characters of the show. However, it isn’t just the men dominating the world of Vikings, No, there are many women who make the series what it is today. Without them, Vikings would be nothing. However, it’s not just on our screens we get to see these actresses take over the world. It seems as though they’re pretty good at nailing it on Instagram, too. Who knew so many people could have so many talents? At least now we get to take a look at what life is like for these women when they’re not busy defending their land.
