“I think every woman character, every female character, has her own arc. Yes, I’m a shieldmaiden, and they get the power in terms of the glory and fighting the battle sequences, but also as a mother,” Katheryn Winnick told The Mary Sue. “But also Princess Aslaug has her own battles. And being a mother and dealing now with Ivar the Boneless, or [Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye]. You know, dealing with different challenges as a mother. And Siggy goes through her own challenges, and Porunn goes through her own different arc. So you have different sides of the female personality and the different sides of being a female in that time period that gets explored.”
HEY, WE RECOGNIZE THIS.
Gorgeous images. GORGEOUS.
Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.
But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her.
I can’t stop watching this.
I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.
