The ever endearing Alex Andersen is known to most as Ivar the Boneless in the hit historical drama Vikings.
Q: What has been your greatest challenge in portraying Ivar?
A: I think the physical aspect of him. Being constantly limited. I can’t just choreograph my scenes like everybody else and just ‘walk over here’ because that’s what feels right. Mentally it’s frustrating, but also such a learning experience. Physically, my wrists, lower back and hips are hurting a bit. Nothing but happy days, though.
