Wherein I cry as I realize I will never have a funeral like this

"The reason there hasn't been much on TV on the Vikings beforehand, of
course, is you would imagine it's a hard sell. You're trying to get
people to sympathize with people who come through the door with axes,"
admits Michael Hirst, the creator and executive producer of the History Channel's hit drama "Vikings."
Indeed, their reputation as violent plunderers precedes them, but Hirst
adds, "I'm showing a much richer, much more complex society than I
think people have imagined."
His approach has proven a ratings success. It debuted on March 3 with
more than six million viewers and averaged more than four million during
its first season. History announced the show's renewal for a second
season on April 5.
But how will the series fare at the Emmys?
Early 20th-century period dramas "Boardwalk Empire" and "Downton Abbey"
have done well in recent years, both earning nominations for Best Drama
Series last year, and "Deadwood," set in the 19th century, earned a
Drama Series bid in 2005.
However, shows that reach further back in the history books have had
more difficulty being recognized, which is ironic given how popular
Elizabethan dramas are at the Oscars.
Showtime's "The Tudors," also created by Hirst, explored the reign of
King Henry VIII, but despite 15 nominations and six Emmy wins in
Creative Arts categories, it was never nominated for writing, directing,
acting, or Best Drama.
Similarly, Showtime's "The Borgias," about the rise of corrupt Pope Alexander VI
during the 16th century, has received a total of 10 nominations and two
wins in its first two seasons, all in Creative Arts races.
"Rome" -- about the rise and fall of Julius Caesar --
only ran for two seasons on HBO, but nevertheless amassed an impressive
15 nominations and seven wins, but those too were relegated to craft
In contrast, historical epics have done quite well in the Emmys'
longform categories, where programs like "John Adams," "Elizabeth I,"
"Peter the Great," and "Shogun" have won top honors. Can "Vikings" help
to extend that success into the series races?
Among the cast of "Vikings" is Gabriel Byrne,
who entered for consideration as Best Drama Actor, a category where he
was nominated twice for HBO's "In Treatment" (2008, 2009).
The series' crew is also full of Emmy favorites. Costume designer Joan Bergin is a three-time champ for "The Tudors." Production designer Tom Conroy also won for "The Tudors." Composer Trevor Morris won Emmys for scoring both "Tudors" and "Borgias." Cinematographer John S. Bartley won in 1996 for "The X-Files."
Given its impressive pedigree, it's fitting that Hirst says of possible
Emmy nominations, "It would mean a huge amount to me … because of
everything everyone has put into it. I've worked with a lot of very,
very talented people, and that would be recognition of a collective

SHE may look like your typical blonde beauty but Canadian actress
Katheryn Winnick is no pushover. The 35-year-old from Ontario began her
training in martial arts at the tender age of 7. She earned her first
black belt at age 13 and when she hit 21, had already established three
martial arts schools.
Having appeared in many TV series — House, Law & Order, Bones, CSI,
Nikita and Criminal Minds — over the years, Winnick’s latest role is
one of beauty combined with the beast.
In the new historical drama series Vikings, she is Lagertha, the wife
of legendary Norse warrior Ragnar Lodbrok, whose heroic exploits and
travels have survived the test of time. Played by Travis Fimmel, Viking
chieftain Ragnar is a farmer with a thirst for travel and adventure.
Aided on his journeys by his wife, brother Rollo (Clive Standen) and
fellow warriors, he gains notoriety as the scourge of France and
The US$40 million (RM128 million) Canadian-Irish production follows his
gripping story, and delves into family and brotherhood during the
little known period of the medieval Viking saga.
Created by award-wining director Michael Hirst, known for his work on
the The Tudors and Camelot, the epic nine-part series also stars Nathan
O’Toole, Gustaf Skarsgard, George Blagden, Jessalyn Gilsig, John
Kavanagh, Donal Logue and Alyssa Sutherland. Aside from Vikings, Winnick
can be seen on the big screen in this year’s comedy heist film, The Art
Of The Steal, alongside Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Terence Stamp.
Currently wrapping up shooting for the second season in Ireland, Winnick took some time off to talk about her kickass role.Is there any aspect of Viking life that should be incorporated into modern life?
What’s great about this show is that it really celebrates women and how
strong women can be. Lagertha is an example of a strong and powerful
woman, and based on a real Viking at that. As a shield maiden she fought
alongside her husband and his men but she also had a feminine side as a
mother who took care of the home. The fact that Lagertha has many fans
shows that there’s an appetite for women with a strong voice.Favourite moments in the show so far?
Just being on set, working in beautiful natural landscape and
environment out in the middle of nowhere, dressed in highly detailed
costumes with a great cast and crew. The crew have been working together
for the past 25 years — on Braveheart and The Tudors — so there’s a
sense of family there, where everybody supports each other.Name a misconception about the Vikings that you found out while working on this show.
There are lots of stereotypes. People thought that these Vikings were
just barbarians with horns coming out of their helmets. That’s so not
the case. They were smart and strong warriors, very strategic in how
they approached different battles, and they were civilised. For them,
everything had a purpose and meaning.As a martial arts exponent, what was the Viking battle experience like?
I love the action side of it. My character goes through so many changes
during the season and gets the chance to really do some serious damage
(laughs), which is a lot of fun as an actor. I was a tomboy who grew up
in a taekwondo dojo at the age of 7 (she also practised karate). It’s a
different style of fighting — with a sword and shield, as opposed to
using hands and feet — that I had to learn and I’m still learning. The
fights here are more raw in a sense and I try to do as much of the
stunts myself. We’re not trying to glorify the fights on the show but
just to portray a very instinctual and realistic way of going about it.
Sometimes I just want to go and whip out a spinning back kick but that’s
not what would have happened back then, and I have to hold myself back.
Lagertha’s not just someone who can defend herself physically but also a
fighter as an individual.Tell us about your Ukrainian background.
I have a strong Ukrainian background. Although I was raised in Canada
and my first language is English, there’s a strong Ukrainian culture and
community here as well, and we support each other. I did Ukrainian
dancing and learnt the language, among other things, and went to a
Ukrainian school every Saturday. I hated it initially but I’m grateful
for that grounding now since it helped to broaden my view of the world.
It also helped me as an actor.Where did you draw inspiration for your character?
I didn’t base her on any anyone specific but I sought out other strong
women I could use as reference points. Catherine the Great and Elizabeth
had faced many challenges, and they had a strong voice. I see Yulia
Tymoshenko, the former Prime Minister of Ukraine now serving a prison
term, as a modern woman facing different struggles. I also try to bring
a bit of myself to the character and I’m still learning. Every day is a
new day and I discovered a lot about myself playing this role.
Vikings premieres on Sunday at 10pm on History (Astro Channel

Donal Logue sat in a booth of a greasy-spoon
diner close to the highway in Studio City, Calif. It’s not the sort of
place an actor typically picks for an interview, a far cry from a
beachfront hotel or private Hollywood club, but then again, Logue isn’t
your typical actor. For one, it was 9:30 on a Friday morning, but Logue
had arrived for our interview more than an hour early and already eaten
breakfast. As I walked up to greet him, the table was already cleared
and he sat quietly observing the other patrons with a half-empty mug of
black coffee in his hands. After I sat down across from him, the
48-year-old actor pulled out his phone to show a photo of what his hair
had looked like a few days earlier.
“Hey, Jimmy,” he said, flagging over a sleepy waiter with tattoo sleeves, “check it out.”
The photo was of the back of Logue’s head, his rusty red hair tied into a
ponytail that dangled just below his shoulder blades. It was long, and
we all leaned in to gawk at it.
“That’s what you just cut off?” Jimmy asked, looking genuinely shocked.
“Yeah, two days ago.” Logue’s accent is California surfer with a sandy desert edge.
Jimmy topped off Logue’s mug before leaving. As Logue sipped from the
worn mug, he was practically unrecognizable from the gritty characters
for which he’s most well-known: outcasts and rebels, warriors with
dangerous glints in their eyes or washed-up losers with their better
days behind them. His hair was trimmed to just above his ears. He was
clean-shaven, wearing a navy blazer with a button-up shirt; he looked
almost professorial — a far cry from his most recent TV gigs, as
vengeful Lee Toric on Sons of Anarchy and the manipulative King Horik in Vikings, among others.
“I get it,” Logue said, laughing. “I look a certain way one way. The other way, I’m just the assistant manager at Circuit City.”
Logue had cut his hair for a potential new role. It wasn’t a role he’d
landed yet, but as he explained, preparation is incredibly important. “I
went back yesterday, and the director was like, ‘Could you do the whole
script?’ I was like, ‘Yeah. I’ve memorized 30 scenes.’ It has just
become part of the DNA of the last couple years of work in Terriers. I’m like, ‘Yeah, man. I’m on it. We could do it all if you want.’ It’s fun that way. Your only defense is preparation.”
For an actor who’s been working consistently
for the last 20 years, Logue still doesn’t exist on most people’s
radars. He’s had roles in close to 50 films, including Jerry Maguire, Blade, The Patriot, and The Tao of Steve,
for which he won a Special Grand Jury Prize for best actor at the 2000
Sundance Film Festival. And he’s also starred in TV shows like Grounded for Life, ER, and The Practice, and anchored the short-lived but beloved FX series Terriers.
At the same time, none of those roles have translated into major fame.
But this year could be the one that does: He’s got a recurring role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
as the not-always-by-the-book Lieutenant Declan Murphy, and was cast as
Detective Harvey Bullock in Fox’s highly anticipated Batman-origin
pilot, Gotham, which seems a lock for a series order. Still, with
so many notches on his film belt, can you ever really be sure that this
one will be the one?
“There are a lot of people in entertainment who have been way more
successful than I have in a number of different ways,” he admitted. His
elbows rested on the plastic table as he leaned forward. “I’m a yeoman
kind of guy who has worked and been in a lot of things. I’m not a star. I
don’t live in a mansion.”
Logue is arguably the most un-actory actor in Hollywood. He grew up
in the desert town of El Centro, Calif. — next to the Mexican border —
with three sisters, including actress Karina Logue, whom he calls “the
actor of the family.” He’s the son of Irish immigrants, his parents
having met when they were Catholic missionaries in Africa. “I was an
altar boy,” he said. “I went to mass every day for years.” The family
would travel back to Ireland frequently, and Logue even spent his junior
year of high school abroad in North London with relatives.
“We kind of had exposure that you don’t normally have in a small town,”
Logue’s sister Karina said in a phone interview. “The idea of the world
being very open and full of curious things had always been around us.”
And Logue was an intensely curious kid. According to his sister, “He’d
always be reading history books on his own — even in the third grade —
that were high school-level and didn’t have anything to do with school,
they were just Donal’s interests.” He was by all accounts insanely
It wasn’t just books he found a passion for, though: He also excelled in
sports and joined the baseball, football, tennis, soccer, and track and
field teams. He even remembers details about the sports he’d compete in
— down to scarily accurate detail. “When I was 11, I remember running
this 10-mile race. It was 10.1 in 1:01:43,” he said. He didn’t miss a
beat. “My two-mile split was 10:42, so you’re clocking 5:20 miles to
start a 10-mile race at 11 years old. My small group was deeply
committed and would compete at nationals and stuff. It’s just a
Logue would continue to drop small bundles of information in this manner
throughout the interview — effortlessly quoting a passage of a book he
once read, waxing philosophical on the origin of the human race, and
delving into the business politics of owning a trucking company. (More
on that later.)
In high school, Logue described himself as “garrulous” and “a real
joker,” while Karina said he was a “very popular kid.” That could be
because he wasn’t just active in sports, but also in theater: He
performed in a Eugene Ionesco play, The Bald Soprano, in high
school and participated in the speech and debate teams — he was the
California state champion in impromptu speaking. He was also an avid
reader, and consumed everything from Joyce to Faulkner, V.S. Naipaul,
Mark Twain, and Thomas Hardy. He had a hand in anything that would allow
him to and was a bit of a real-life version of Election’s Tracy Flick, only likable.
Sony Pictures Classics
Looking at Logue, the first assumption
wouldn’t be that he’s a Harvard grad. Or as Karina so aptly put it, “If
you saw [Donal] walking down the street, you might cross the street.”
She laughed. “Your first thought wouldn’t be, Oh, Harvard grad, intellectual giant. I’m sure he’s been frustrated because of that at various points in his career.”
Logue did express some of that frustration, though he seemed to laugh it
off more than anything. “I used to have a lot of those conversations
with people, or kind of preppier people, god bless them, who would be
like, ‘You’re kind of interesting. I know you’re not a college person,
but…’ And I’m like, ‘No, I went to college.’”
Logue had his own assumptions about preppy people, though, whether he
knows it or not. “When I came from the desert … I had a lot of anger
towards who I considered to be privileged, wealthy people, and of
course, fear of them, in a way,” Logue said. He also admitted, though,
that one of the more important lessons he took from college was that no
one’s story is ever so black-and-white. “You just never know anyone’s
story until you know their story,” he explained, “and everybody’s story
In high school, he’d began to dabble in acting, but it wasn’t until
Harvard that he really began to immerse himself in it, and the decision
to attend the most prestigious university and pursue his passion for
acting full-time wasn’t met well by his parents. “They were truly
horrified, absolutely terrified,” Logue said. His father still works as
an electrical engineer, and his mother is a retired high school teacher.
Karina confirmed her brother’s assertions: “I don’t want to say that
they begrudged either of us following it, but they’re parents — they
“My parents were such hard workers,” Logue said. “Irish people are such
amazingly hard workers, and it’s ingrained in you from 10 on. I’m mowing
lawns. I’m making my own. If I need a bike, I’m buying it. You figure
Logue is perhaps the greatest example of parenting in action: His
parents were hard workers, and so is he, perhaps to a psychotic fault.
At Harvard, he didn’t simply attend school, but Logue juggled working as
a security guard and a janitor to make extra money.
His career goals, like most twentysomethings’, got a little murky after
that — he bounced around as a roadie for a band called The Lemonheads
and was a road manager for another band called Bullet LaVolta. It wasn’t
until 1990 when he landed his first acting job, on a miniseries called Common Ground.
The series shot in Toronto, and as a relatively inexperienced actor, he
assumed he’d have to make his own way there. “I was like, ‘Oh. I can get
to Toronto and I know a friend I can stay with up there,’” he laughed.
“They were like, ‘We fly you. We put you in a hotel. We give you per
diem.’ That was a big dose of the crack hit. That was like, Man, I could live with this:
living in hotels and getting cash per day to buy stuff. Of course, I
blew it all in, like, two weeks when I got home, drinking every night
out around town in Boston.”
New Line Cinema
It’s hard to say exactly when Logue’s career
took off, mainly because it seems to have been a constant ebb and flow
of small jobs and potential breaks that led to little payoff. After the
miniseries, he continued to land small roles, making more of a name for
himself in parts like Jimmy the Cab Driver in MTV promos, and in NBC’s
critically acclaimed, if short-lived, Life as Captain Kevin Tidwell. And he starred in the indie flick The Tao of Steve, which found a cult audience but no substantial commercial success.
The closest he came to household-name fame was perhaps with Terriers
in 2010. It should’ve been the vehicle into leading-man status, but
after a 13-episode season and abysmal ratings, the FX series was
“Terriers was incredibly unique,” Logue said, “because I really
got to, for the first time, go, if I took a person and pulled them as
close to me as I could in every which way — how I dress, who I am, where
I live — that was the character.”
Logue played Hank, a recovering alcoholic and former cop turned private
investigator. Hank was perpetually torn between doing the right thing
versus what he was getting paid for, and like Hank, Logue is sober — and
has been for 22 years.
Shawn Ryan was an executive producer on the show, and wasn’t terribly
familiar with Logue’s work prior to meeting him, but soon after decided
that the then-44-year-old was the right fit. “There was a natural ease
to him, the way that Ted Griffin had written that character — he’s very
damaged, and yet is trying very hard to rise above it,” Ryan said in a
phone call. “So it’s a lot of pain masked by a lot of humor and a lot of
quips. And Donal talked pretty openly about what he thought were
similarities between the character of Hank and himself. I just had a
really good feeling.”
Part of the show’s charm was the buddy relationship between Logue’s
character of Hank and co-star Michael Raymond-James, who played his
partner in crime, Britt. The two actors knew each other prior to being
cast in the series and had originally met on the set of Life, where they bonded over a mutual love of Jack Kerouac. When Terriers
was picked up to series, they decided to rent a house together on the
beach in San Diego. They were roommates for the entirety of the series’
“The temperature from the network side was, like, ‘Are you sure that’s a
good idea? Because you’re both actors and going to be working together a
lot,’” Raymond-James said. They rented a one-bedroom house, where Logue
slept in the bedroom and Raymond-James on a Murphy bed. They’d run
lines together and prepare for the day’s scenes. And at one point, when
Logue suffered a particularly brutal arm injury after a stunt gone
wrong, Raymond-James even helped Logue dress himself in the mornings.
“There was a big similarity between Donal and Michael Chiklis, in that
they both took responsibility for being a lead actor on a TV show and
everything that meant,” said Ryan, who had previously created the
Chiklis-led drama The Shield. “Which meant they weren’t only
focused on themselves, they were focused on trying to set a good example
for the crew, the other actors, and the guest actors that came in. They
had a stake in the entire show being good, not just their own work.”
Even with Logue’s commitment to the series, it still wasn’t enough to
pull in the ratings the network needed to see. After one season, Terriers was canceled, much to the actors’ dismay.
“It was heartbreaking,” Raymond-James said, his voice even breaking a
bit. “It felt like a death in the family. I had sort of felt that this
was going to be the thing I was known for, but beyond that, we felt that
the show was so good, ya know? Even though it didn’t get any real
viewership at all. But we felt that it was so good that we might get
another shot at it.”
When asked, Logue was slightly less emotional
about the cancellation, but it was the only time he sounded like he
wished he could go back and redo something — which is a big deal,
considering his whole attitude bends toward a live-and-let-live
lifestyle. “I don’t feel like we got ripped off at all,” he said. “I was
so psyched that FX gave us 13 episodes and showed them. People can
watch it on Netflix now. It wasn’t lost.” He opened a piece of Nicorette
gum — for which he said he has an “on-and-off obsession” — and popped
it into his mouth. “Would I have wanted to stay down there for years
working with those people? Absolutely. It was a dream opportunity for
It has now been four years since Terriers, and in that time Logue has kept busy in film and TV, though admittedly had more successes in TV. He had an arc on Sons of Anarchy, a recurring role on the now-canceled BBC America series Copper, and has spent most of 2014 traveling between filming Vikings in Ireland and Law & Order: SVU in New York.
Not terribly surprising, given that his high school résumé would require
a few pages, is that Logue’s career doesn’t end at acting. He has a
rather outsized life far away from the perceived glamour of Hollywood.
At one point, he owned the Hollywood United soccer team and housed many
of the players in his own home. After Terriers ended, he earned
his trucking license and now co-owns a company called Aisling Trucking.
At another time, Logue opened a restaurant called La Vida with his best
friend and fellow actor Gilles Marini, which subsequently folded — or,
as Logue put it, “went to shitsville.” He currently owns a hotel in
Greenville, S.C., into which, he told me, he put his life savings. On
top of all that, within the past year he started a hardwood company and
sold a young adult novel called Agua to Harper Collins Canada.
In a lot of ways, he seems to be a bit of an experiential junkie,
hopping from one hobby to the next and collecting a few more along the
way, an idea that Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter playfully takes to a logical conclusion.
“I’d describe him as an everyman Renaissance man,” Sutter said. “Meaning
he’s very in touch with family, in touch with his roots in terms of
where he grew up and community … He’s a guy that is very fascinated by
people and human nature, and he doesn’t observe it from afar perhaps
like I do; I tend to observe human behavior anonymously, and he’s the
kind of guy who throws himself into it and engages and experiences it.”
Incidentally, Karina also described her brother as a Renaissance man.
Yet, it’s hard to tell if all of Logue’s ventures are the result of
purely varied interests or more that his curiosity has become a kind of
compulsion. Or perhaps it’s something else entirely — that he simply
wants every bit that the world has to offer and in doing so has become a
jack-of-all-trades. He has a tendency to collect hobbies and jobs, and
he does the same thing with people. Throughout our interview, he would
refer to several people as his best friend, and at one point admitted,
“I’ll mention 20 or 50 people and be like, ‘my best friend.’ It’s weird,
but it’s kind of true.” He has a tendency to describe the world around
him as if he simultaneously is a part of it but hasn’t grown up quite
“I’m 48 years old, and I’ll always go to people’s homes and go, Oh, this is how adults do it. They have nice plates and a Viking stove,”
Logue said. His tone wasn’t bitter or judgmental, more intrigued. “It’s
weird because you see it on TV where they go, ‘We’re going into the
home of so-and-so.’ And you’re like, Man, I’m so stupid. Because part of you, in the back of your mind, will be like, I’ve
worked 20 times more than these — I haven’t seen these dudes do
something. Man, they got a house I could — look at that kitchen, a
big-ass island in the middle with a marble counter.”
When you’re around Logue, you are part of his world, and that world
includes a lot of interests and a lot of other people. During our
interview, Logue interacted with each and every waiter at the
restaurant. He knew their names, intimate details about their lives, and
that one is “in a great band.” At one point, his friend and actor
Stephen Frejek joined our breakfast.
“He’s probably one of the most selfless people I’ve ever met, especially
in this town, this industry,” Frejek told me, as Logue smiled next to
him. “He’s just a huge giver.”
“To a psychotic fault, maybe?” Logue said. He is also humble to a fault.
“He’s brilliant,” Frejek continued. “He’s just one of those guys who can
go anywhere and you can have a conversation with anybody about
anything. He’s a great guy to pick his brain, also, like a brother.”

Donal Logue in BBC America’s Copper as Brendan Donovan, on The X-Files as Agent Tom Colton, and in the film Citizen Duane as Uncle Bingo.
A lot of Logue’s motivation seems to come from
the desire to support his family; Logue has two teenage sons, Finn, 14,
and Arlo, 12. And having his hands in different pots may give him a
sense of security in an industry and career that is anything but.
However, this year may be the one that changes that: The Gotham
pilot is beginning to look like a sure thing, and if it does indeed go
to series, it could mean a steady gig for Logue. The iconic character of
Detective Harvey Bullock, introduced in the Batman comics in 1974, is
known for being a cigar-smoking, trench coat-wearing detective with a
hidden agenda. In creator Bruno Heller’s script for the pilot episode of
Gotham, the character is described as “forties, big, stylish but
slovenly, an old-school hard ass and a loose living party animal.” It’s
not clear exactly how close this origin series will remain to the
comics, but one thing Logue made clear is that his interpretation of
Bullock won’t look like anything we’ve seen before.
“I’m not super-invested in the world,” Logue said in a follow-up phone conversation, after being cast on Gotham.
“I don’t know what expectations are about who these guys are, but I
hope that there’s a bit of leeway in people’s minds for us to interpret
them. I just took a look at the cartoon, and I’m not going to try and do
an impersonation of the dude.” In fact, he also admitted to not knowing
much about the Batman franchise outside of watching the cartoon series
with his kids.
As for the success of the Gotham series itself, Logue has a
rather “whatever will be will be” attitude, which is perhaps for the
best, especially in regard to a television pilot. “It’s really
well-written and it’s really interesting, and it’s kind of two-handed
the way Terriers was,” he said. “Whatever their plans are, that’s
fine. I mean, they don’t make any long-term promises. They certainly
make you promise a little bit that you’ll be available for a certain
amount of time. But it’s a hard juggernaut of a world to turn down,
because it has such excitement attached to it.”
In general, Logue seems to have a hard time discussing the future or
any concrete wishes he has. That could be a result of years of would-be
successes turned misses, or that he’s just an incredibly practical
person, or a little of both. “It’s really hard for me to have any kind
of objective sense of career stuff,” Logue said. “I think I’m always
kind of in a decent place. In a way I’ve never spiked super high, I’m
not a celebrity, and I’m not a famous person, but I’m always doing
enough work that hopefully people are always thinking that you’re in
this kind of mix.”
“I’m going to try and make hay while I can make some hay, creatively and
otherwise,” Logue said of juggling his various projects, “but at some
point I need to find a spot to plant.”
