Vikings Season 4 – Alex Høgh Andersen Joins as Series Regular

Young Danish actor Alex Høgh Andersen has been cast as a series regular in the hit History drama series Vikings. He will make his debut in the Season 4 spring finale tomorrow night, April 21, playing lead Ragnar Lothbrok’s (Tavis Fimmel) son, Ivar the Boneless, who is more dangerous than he appears. His character, along with Ragnar’s other offspring, have been featured as children until now but will make the transition to adulthood as part of a widely speculated time jump, which had been revealed by pictures of the cast from the set. Ivar’s grownup brothers are played by Jordan Patrick Smith (Ubbe), Marco Ilsø (Hvitserk) and David Lindström (Sigurd).

Going forward, Andersen is expected to become a lead in the series as historically, Ivar was a prominent Viking leader and a commander of the Great Heathen Army.
