Have you aged Ragnar's children this year, since this story eventually becomes about them?
Yes, the children are a little older. We haven’t pushed the boundaries too much, but we have recast some of the sons and they are starting to develop and show their characters. They can play a bigger part in the stories, we can begin to see how important they are, both to Ragnar and to the story. Historically speaking the only thing that Ragnar Lothbrok, really feared was that his sons would become more famous than he was. So we’re beginning to see some of that anxiety on Ragnar’s part, even though he loves his sons. So yeah, we're going on with developing the sons and they will play a bigger and bigger part in season four. That’s very important to me, this has never been the Ragnar Lothbrok show, this is a show about Vikings. And again historically speaking, a couple of Ragnar's sons did become more famous than he was. I’m thinking particularly of Bjorn and the wonderfully named Ivor the Boneless. Ivor’s story is a crucial and amazing part of season four.
