‘Vikings’ Bulks Up With Three New Regulars for Season 4 (Exclusive)

HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM – Following its deadly third season, History’s Vikings is adding three new series regulars to its cast.

Finnish actors Peter Franzen (The Gunman) and Jasper Paakkonen (Frozen Land, Secret Lives) as well as Dianne Doan (Once Upon a Time) have joined the drama series created by Michael Hirst, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Franzen will play King Harald Finehair, a Scandinavian warrior and potential threat to Ragnar (Travis Fimmel). Paakkonen is set to play Halfdan the Black, Finehair’s younger brother. Doan will portray Yidu, a new and unique Chinese character who will have a big role in season four.

Season four, already underway in Ireland, will feature a time jump of a “couple of years,” Hirst told THR after the season three finale.

The castings come as Vikings said farewell to Jessalyn Gilsig’s Siggy and George Blagden’s Athelstan in its third season.

Franzen is repped by Paradigm and Untitled Entertainment, as well as Actors in Scandinavia; Paakkonen is with ICM Partners, Lisa Richards and Anonymous Content; and Doan is with Principals Talent Management.

Vikings returns in 2016.

Hello and welcome to The Ben Robson Network, an unofficial fan site dedicated to British actor Ben Robson!

As a big fan of Ben, I’ve been following his career since I saw him in Dracula: The Dark Prince and of course, season 3 of History’s Vikings. I decided to create a site especially for him as a new up and comer. So here it is finally. I do hope you like it and be assured there’s much more to come!

The photo gallery is still a work in progress but it is open. I will still be making updates to it as much as I can. In the meantime, have a look around.

I’m not new to the fan site world, as I enjoy making sites on my favorite people. You can check out my other sites at my personal site which is located at the sidebar.

Now enjoy your stay and I hope you come back for updates!
