Vikings has been off the air since season 4 ended back in February, but that didn’t stop us from interviewing series star Katheryn Winnick and putting her on the cover of our Summer 2017 issue of Real Style. It was the second time we’d placed the actress on our cover, and the first since the series became a hit. With Vikings returning tonight on History, we thought it would be a perfect time to take a look back at that interview.
When we spoke to Winnick, she’d just returned to Toronto from filming in London and Dublin. While she had been running on just a few hours sleep, she still sounded refreshed and enthusiastic to speak. She talked to us about how fans are always surprised to find out that she is such a petite person and not 6’2″. She went on to talk about how Vikings has changed her life, and how she meets her fans. Of course it was her discussion about season 5 of the series that peaked our attention the most.
In case you weren’t aware, Winnick will be joined in season 5 by her two brothers, one of which will be playing a king in the fifth season of the hit show. She also talked about the historical accuracy of the series, and where she sees herself in five years.
