Well, well, well; it looks like the hit History Channel series “Vikings” is adding another bearded beauty to its cast of buff actors and his name is Ben Robson. You may know the British actor from the film “Dracula: The Dark Prince,” where he took on the role of Lucian, but soon you’ll be correlating his mug with that of a Viking warrior!

Who will Robson be when Season 3 of “Vikings” airs in 2015? According to Deadline, he will play Kalf, “a trusted and second-in-command to Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick).” Interesting.

Winnick then took to Twitter to welcome the new commander to the show.

But is it just us, or does Robson’s casting come at a suspicious time? Recently, during a Gold Derby Google+ Hangout, Winnick revealed what’s in store for her character come Season 3 – you know, in the romance department. Lagertha hasn’t been too lucky when it comes to love. Her first marriage to Ragnar resulted in a divorce after he cheated on her with Princess Aslaug before requesting for the three to participate in a polygamous relationship.
“You insult and humiliate me. I have no choice but to leave you and divorce you. It’s fate,” Lagertha said before leaving Kattegat in Season 2.
Then Lagertha somehow found herself in an even worse predicament when she married the abusive Earl of Hedeby, Sigvard. And we all know how that ended up.
But Winnick confessed that fans shouldn’t fret. According to the actress, she’ll find someone to keep her warm at night come Season 3 – but who?
“I just read the new script last night,” she explained, adding that Season 3 is currently in the works. “There is interest.”
The shieldmaiden went on to explain that whoever the mystery man is, Lagertha will be showing some curiosity. “I think Ragnar is also in the picture and I guess you’re going to have to wait and see!”
Originally we speculated that this meant Lagertha and Ragnar would get back together in Season 3, but now we suspect our fierce fighter may be giving her ex-husband a taste of his own medicine when the adorable Kalf makes his way to Kattegat.
