Vikings is still a ways out from its season 4 premiere, as the show is currently shooting. But even early on, Clive Standen, who plays formidable warrior Rollo, promises there’s even more action ahead.
“We’ve got the biggest boats battles,” Standen told EW of the upcoming season at Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con Bash on Saturday. “We’ve got capsized long boats, vikings fighting in the sea. It’s incredible stuff.”
The drama extends to Rollo, whose storyline will pick up right where it left off in season three. “Rollo got offered the land and the princess by Charles, and I don’t think he really thought about it that much,” Standen says. “It seems like a win-win scenario. He’s got nothing to go back for in Kattegat anymore.”
That said, Standen thinks Rollo might be in for a rude awakening where his new situation is concerned. “I don’t think he really realized that the French people, the last time they saw him he was the crazy bear with his top off ransacking Paris,” Standen says. “He thinks this is going to be an easy ride, and then we’ve all seen how he reacted to Gisla’s speech. He hasn’t got a clue. He doesn’t even speak the language. There’s no going back.”
Even so, Standen believes there are steps Rollo can take to succeed in Paris. “We’re going to see a completely different Rollo, if he’s ever going to conquer Paris and conquer the princess,” Standen says. “He has to be far more cerebral, he has to be on his A-game all the time, and his attitude to Ragnar has to change. He can’t always be in the doldrums of being this second-best brother that’s in the shadows.”
Standen concludes: “He’s been a man who thought, ‘Eventually I’ll come first—just trust the gods.’ I think he’s now realized, no one gives you anything in life. You have to take it.”

Popular primetime series "Vikings" will be back on History Channel with season 4 in 2016.
Actor George Blagden is likely to portray the spirit of Anglo Saxon monk Athelstan when the show returns on History Channel with season 4 in 2016.
Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) was deeply affected by the death of his close friend, but the monk's spirit will not have a great impact on the Viking leader, according to creator Michael Hirst.
"George would be hovering around the whole time. In reality and in spirit Athelstan continues to exert a big influence not necessarily on Ragnar, but on King Eckbert (Linus Roache) in Wessex and on Athelstan's son Alfred," he said.
The showrunner even stated that the death will play "a big role in the lives of the living" and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) will have to pay for being the cause of Athelstan's demise.
However, Lothbrok will be more concerned about his sons, including Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) and Ivar the Boneless, than the monk in "Vikings" season 4 as he fears that they could be more famous than him.
While revealing that the children of Fimmel's character will play bigger roles in the story, Hirst mentioned that some of them will become more famous than their father.
"This has never been the Ragnar Lothbrok show, this is a show about Vikings. And again historically speaking, a couple of Ragnar's sons did become more famous than he was. I'm thinking particularly of Bjorn and the wonderfully named Ivor the Boneless. Ivor's story is a crucial and amazing part of season four," The Hollywood Reporter quoted him as saying.
Meanwhile, actor Clive Standen, who portrays Lothbrok's brother Rollo in the history series, teased a few epic fight sequences of the fourth season.
"Our great writer Michael Hirst has written these amazing episodes for the [second third of season 4] and we've got boat battles, capsizing boats and Vikings fighting on the sea, which is what they did fantastically well and we've never done it so far," he told Nerdgeist.
So, fans of the popular drama series can except some exciting battle scenes between Rollo and his brother in "Vikings" season 4.
