Comic Con 2013 was held in San Diego 7/17/13 – 7/21/13. The four days were jam packed with walking around the exhibit halls, panels, enjoying fans and taking lots of photos.
This Comic Con was even more special for fans of the History Channel tv show “Vikings” since they were holding their first panel at the event! I was able to get some shots of the cast from the press room on Friday. The cast was amazing and super nice to all and really appreciated all the fans who attended the panel.
“As Americans, you like to say that family comes first,” Hirst told Room 6a, “The same can be said of the Vikings. Ragnar bred a lot of sons who became famous in their own turn. When he died, they finally declared war on the whole world.” Hinted Winnick: “Her relationship with Bjorn and Ragnar is tested. We learn that our son is older and it’s interesting to see if she is stronger or weaker in that situation.”As far as the rumors about the series jumping ahead in its historical timeline, Hirst hinted that he’s not leaping too far into the future given the cliffhangers left in Episode 9 which “need resolution before we go ahead.”
The panel also included actors Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok), Clive Standen (Rollo), Jessalyn Gilsig (Siggy Haraldson), Gustaf Skarsgard (Floki) and George Blagden (Anthelstan). Sitting alongside them was History’s EVP Development and Programming Dirk Hoogstra, who expressed his amazement by the passion of Vikings’ fans, who debate history and post fan art online. source:
Friday night Day 2 was just amazing since I was able to do the photographs for the “Vikings’ press room. Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, George Blagen, Gustaf Skarsgard (yes Alex’s brother!), Jessalyn Gilsig, Katheryn Winnick were there representing the cast of the popular History channel. They cast was excited about the upcoming season 2.
My night was just perfect when Gustaf noticed that I was wearing a green Hammarby soccer shirt! He gave me a thumbs up and wanted me to join him on the red carpet.
Fans also enjoyed the off site Vikings boat race and the shield maidens were there for photos:
Fans can’t wait for the new season! Huge thanks to History channel and the cast for making Comic Con 2013 a lot of fun and a great success!
