Working for a TV series can be challenging, and “Vikings” season 6 is no exception. Cast member Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha) recently shared the shocking time she gets picked up for work. Meanwhile, Alex Høgh Andersen (Ivar) and Marco Ilsø (Hvitserk) shared a 360-degree look at the Kattegat set.

Winnick shared a picture of a message she got from a coordinator about getting picked up at 3:20 am for a shoot (see below). The actress has to wake up before her pick-up time and get ready before heading to the production set. This is just one of the challenges the actors have to face while filming, which fans rarely get to know about.

The actors are not the only ones who have to put in all the hard work. The crew members, too, have to be there on set long before cameras start rolling for the day. They need to get the set ready and make sure all props and other materials are in place.

The production sets of the “Vikings” TV series are complex and require a lot of planning. The 360-degree video tour of the Kategat set (see below) starts with the outer wall, which the actors call the “boring” part. Fans then see the tower defence, which was apparently upgraded extensively for season 4.

The set was empty on the day of the tour. The actors revealed that it is generally packed with a lot of animals as filming takes place. A major scene in season 4 episode 10 involving Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) was filmed at this location.

While filming for “Vikings” season 6 is currently ongoing, fans are yet to see the premiere of season 5. The show is set to return on Nov. 29.


3:20 AM?! Tomorrow's morning pick up.. or is that considered tonight's? _ #Vikings
