Vikings-season 6 : creator threatened of death by fans, because Lagertha

This is not easy every day to write a successful series such as Vikings, whose season 6 has just started in the USA. The evidence, the creator has had to deal with death threats from fans, because of Lagertha, which forced him to revise his plans. Attention spoilers.

The power of fans

The series Vikings – which will end at the end of season 6, was never shown tender with his characters since his debut on History. Honestly, who has really recovered from the death of Ragnar ? However, unlike many heroes, Lagertha has always been able to overcome the dangers and climb up to power through the trials. A surprise ? Is this a coincidence ? Not at all.

Post Katheryn Winnick – the performer, the character has simply its survival to the influence of the fans. The micro Rotten Tomatoes, the actress has confessed : “The fans have always been loyal, have literally sent death threats to Michael Hirst [creator, editor’s note] in the case where they kill Lagertha. So in the end, we were forced to find new, creative ideas to keep it alive in history“.

Ah ! looks like Denis Brogniart. And obviously, the threats that work more than the petitions (poke the fans of Game of Thrones).

Lagertha more old but still badass

A situation that could be confusing for the creative team and his initial plans, but that has allowed Katheryn Winnick work in a different way thanks to the aging of his character : “Now, she is a grand-mother, with the children of Bjorn in particular. It was really a very interesting adventure as an actress to get through this last step.

Most importantly, despite the blow of old Lagertha in this season 6 – she is not the warrior of yesteryear, it has also buried its sword, the actress ensures that she has lost nothing of his personality : “This is a strength on which we can count. It is not the sort to give up and it becomes even more obvious this year“.

Remains to be seen whether Michael Hirst will take revenge of these threats in the last episode…
