The new epic series examines Viking culture by way of Game of Thrones — there’s family disputes, clashes between kings, and lots and lots of animal pelts. Jessalyn plays Siggy, the potentially duplicitous wife of warrior-ruler Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byre). After starring as Will Schuester’s (Matthew Morrison) conniving ex-wife on Glee, she’s been primed for whatever matrimonial mayhem awaits her on the Scandinavian high seas.
We’re thinking the opportunities for breaking into song on Vikings will be minimal — considering that traditional Viking music lacks catchy hooks and harmonies. Sorry guys.
