Real-life Partners of Vikings Cast
We all love Vikings for its adventurous spirit, for its battles, for the opportunity to immerse ourselves into the ancient culture and, of course, for an amazing cast! All of them look so hot that even mud and blood only add attractiveness to their appearance!
We could dig up some interesting facts about the actors' private lives! Are Ragnar and Lagertha dating in real life? Who is the main womanizer? Whose brothers are famous Hollywood stars? Let's find out!
Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok
Despite the fact that Ragnar found his sweetheart (and even a second one), the Australian actor and former Calvin Klein model Travis Fimmel who portrayed the King of Denmark is absolutely single again, ladies! Hard to believe, huh? His appearance allows him to win the hearts of many!
Even though Travis was linked with several co-stars, nothing lasted long or turned into a serious relationship.
Recent rumors were about his co-star Paula Patton aka Garona from the Warcraft movie. Their on-screen romance seemed so real that rumors about their off-screen relationship aired right after the release of the film. In an interview, Travis said that his on-screen chemistry with Paula came naturally, "Oh yeah. If you saw her in real life... Yeah, pretty easy," said Fimmel
But even if you thought that it was a hint that the actors' on-screen chemistry was being continued in real life, you should know that Paula Patton has recently revealed that she has a boyfriend, so there clearly hasn't been a successful romance between her and Travis. We hope that Fimmel will find his queen in the nearest future! Fingers crossed.
Alexander Ludwig as Bjorn Ironside
This handsome young man is also popular with women due to his appearance and charisma. The first woman, the actor dated, was his Race to Witch Mountain co-star Anna Sophia Robb back in 2008. He was only 16 back then, and Robb was 15. But their teenage romance lasted for a solid 3 years!
Alexander's list of romance victories also includes the actress Leven Rambin who he met on the set of Hunger Games, model Nicole Pedro and even the alpine ski racer Lindsey Vonn.
But it seems that the actor has finally found his beauty! He seems to be very happy in a relationship with the actress, model, and dancer Kristy Dawn Dinsmore. He shared a sweet picture together on this year's Valentine's Day making their romance public. In summer, the actor made an even sweeter post thanking his sweetheart for everything. So cute! They look so happy together, just look at their photos on Instagram!
Maude Hirst as Helga
Maude and her sister Georgia, who portrays Torvi, are daughters to Michael Hirst - screenwriter and producer of many historical movies, including The Tudors and Vikings. So we believe that Maude and Georgia's parts were written for them and their real-life tempers.

I don’t know much about crystals but I find them fascinating and beautiful and I believe they make me feel things in a heightened way. I was given my first few crystals by friends of mine at times in my life that I needed support and holding these crystals did make me feel an inner strength. I also love giving them as gifts as I feel there is something magical in giving someone a piece of rock that has a meaning behind it - to give them the support they need in that moment. I realise talking about crystals is a little woo woo but I have started living my life by removing my pre-concieved ideas of what is NORMAL and acceptable and just trying lots of things with a open mind and continuing with the ones that make me feel good. Crystals are one of the many bizarre new additions that make me feel good. Along with mindfulness practices, defusing oils, writing lots, being surrounded by nature, dancing around to music everyday and singing continuously (much to the annoyance of my partner). The list goes on but I think my point is, it’s fun to try new things with an open mind. What do you think? 📸@mattbenstone #MaudeHirstYoga #EnergyRise
While her younger sister is still starring in Vikings, Maude has completely vanished off the radar. Perhaps, you won't believe it but she is currently focused on mental and physical health by being a yoga and meditation teacher! She even has her own YouTube channel to inspire people! She looks very beautiful and peaceful, doesn't she? Probably, it means that she's doing very good.

How are you feeling today? Do you ever take the time to switch off from your busy life to answer that? Sometimes we get so caught up in the rat race of life that we don’t notice what emotions we’re actually feeling. Empower yourself by bringing awareness. Once you have awareness, you have a choice. ~ 📸 @mattbenstone #energyrise #maudehirstyoga #meditatewithme #meditatedaily #yogainstructor #mindfulmovement #switchoff #londonyoga #londonmeditation
We know little about her love life. She spends a lot of time with the singer Bryn Christopher, but it's unclear if they're dating or just friends.
Maude Hirst is not planning on any new shows just yet, instead she is concentrated on holding different Yoga events. Her fans hope that she'll soon excite them with some new roles. But time will tell, and for now, let's just wish her luck in all of her new beginnings!
Jessalyn Gilsig as Siggy
Glee star Jessalyn Gilsig is a great mother of her 12-year old daughter Penelope. Despite the fact that she divorced her high school sweetheart after a 5-year long marriage, Jessalyn turned out to be strong enough to raise her little daughter by herself. Having a child has motivated the actress to watch her health carefully.
“My mom told me, ‘Remember on the plane, they say if the oxygen masks come down, put yours on first before your child, I said it would be impossible, and she said, ‘I know, but they say it for a reason. I realized she was saying the best way to serve your child is to make sure you’re healthy, because they’re so dependent on you."
That is why the actress doesn't miss her workouts and maintains a healthy lifestyle. "I like high-intensity workouts — spinning, boxing, cardio barre. I also run, and I have a Spin bike at my house," Jessalyn says.
It's completely clear that the actress is very concentrated on her career and devoted to her child now, but is there any man in her life? She's really private about it, so, unfortunately, we don't know anything about her personal life.
Gustaf Skarsgård as Floki
Did you know that Gustaf comes from a super famous family? His father is a popular Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard. Gustaf has 7 brothers and two of them are also famous Hollywood actors. Handsome Alexander Skarsgard became famous thanks to the HBO series True Blood and recently, Big Little Lies. And their younger brother Bill is well-known from his role as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in Stephen King's recent production "It."
But let's get back to Gustaf. The actor met his love back in 1999. She was a famous Swedish actress Hanna Alstrom, who you may know from Kingsman. Unfortunately, the couple split up in 2005 and since then Gustaf hasn't shared anything about his love affairs.
Lately, paparazzi caught the actor with model Caroline Sjöström, but neither of them confirmed their relationship as of now. The two look pretty together, so let’s see what’s going to happen next!
Judging from this post on Gustaf's Instagram, he and his Vikings co-star Alexander Ludwig are good friends. Just look at how sweet these two look! Skarsgard captioned this photo by saying, "When me and @alexanderludwig reunited at Comiccon. Miss You my brother!" We can clearly see that they missed each other because they're so happy they are to meet. So if you're a fan of the bromances of famous actors, it seems that now you have new favorites!
Katheryn Winnick as Lagertha
She might be a loving wife to legendary Ragnar Lothbrock in TV-series but what about her real life? A Canadian actress with Ukrainian roots Katheryn Winnick is very secretive about her private life. The 40-year old actress was spotted with Sofia Vergara's ex Nick Loeb back in 2015, but it didn't last long.
Seemingly fragile Katheryn has a black belt in taekwondo and karate and even a bodyguard license. Wow! This definitely explains why at Lagertha's they fight just like Vikings!
Katheryn maintains a good relationship with Alex Høgh who portrays Ivar the Boneless on the show, the son to Ragnar and Aslaug. But they remain just friends.
Katheryn and Travis aka Ragnar definitely have on-screen chemistry, and many are hoping for their romance to continue off-screen. Well, since both of them are single, maybe the news about the newly-formed couple is coming soon? What do you think?
Alex Høgh Andersen as Ivar the Boneless
Alex has dreamt of acting since childhood. At the age of 17, he was accepted to the University of Copenhagen to study Film and Media Studies and then his dream came true.
In Vikings, Alex Hogh portrays a legendary person who was famous for his cruelty, but what is he like in real life He isn't as interested in girls as his character. 24-year old Alex hasn't been spotted in any relationship yet.
Probably, he's just concentrated on working in his first big project and doesn't want to get distracted from acting. In his free time, Alex Hogh is devoted to photography, learning about cameras, charity and... dancing and singing! Alex is the heart and soul of the company, and it's never boring with him during filming!
Well, we are sure that for Alex, Vikings is just the beginning, and he will star in many global hits and also find his true love.
George Blagden as Athelstan
Athelstan has changed the whole Vikings history. It is hard to believe in it, isn't it? And despite Athelstan's attraction to Judith of Northumbria, he was lonely till the end of his life. And how is it going for George Blagden?
In real life, he is not suffering from a lack of attention. He was even dating his co-star Elinor Crawley, who played Thyri!

What an amazing 6 months. Couldn’t have asked for better friends and mentors than these two @seadonyoung1 @rfleeshman I will never forget this incredible experience with this whole team of extraordinary people. Thank you to all of you on @companywestend who made this unforgettable for me and congratulations to everyone on an amazing run. 📸: @seadonyoung1
Despite the fact that they had very few scenes together, love sparkled between the two actors. They had been together for a few years, making the fans happy by sharing their mutual pictures on Instagram. Unfortunately, last year they broke up for an unknown reason.
But he has recently started dating another co-star Laura Pitt-Pulford who he met on stage (well, duh, where else could he do it?). Fans are very happy for this couple, as they look joyous together.
Now George Blagden has it all: gorgeous girlfriend, favorite dog, and growing career.
Right after Vikings, George landed the main role of the French King Louis XIV in another historical series Versailles. Also, you may have recognized him in Les Miserables, an amazing film where he starred along with A-listed Hollywood actors. Keep going, George! We are rooting for you!
Alyssa Sutherland as Aslaug
Gorgeous Alyssa Sutherland is an Australian and former model, just like Travis Fimmel. We don't know much about her private life. She was married to her long-term boyfriend, American film and commercial director, Laurence Shaney, but they divorced quite soon, right when she started acting for Vikings actively.
Maybe Alyssa had a crush on somebody from the cast? Unfortunately, no. But according to her pictures on Instagram, she is dating a talented photographer Benjamin Walsh. Just look at this cute picture of them together with their dog!
Well, there was no official statement, but it's pretty clear, isn't it? We really hope that this relationship will be a happy one and will last long.
Clive Standen as Rollo
Clive is a lucky guy! He found the love of his life Francesca at a very young age. Clive is very romantic, judging by his proposal to Francesca. In 2007, the actor dressed up as his girlfriend's favorite celebrity, Elvis Presley, sang the song, Fools Rush In, and popped the question
Despite being married for 11 years, Clive is still madly in love with his wife and their three children; two sons, Hayden and Rafferty, and a daughter, Edie. On their 10th anniversary, he shared a touching message to his wife captioning it:
"I have met and married the one true love of my life, the only woman I have ever loved, or will ever love for the balance of my days."
Looks like Clive's got it all: amazing wife, three beautiful kids, and a fast-growing career. What else could a man wish? We are happy for you, Rollo, and we wish the same kind of happiness to everyone else!
