“It gladdens me to know that Odin prepares for a feast. Soon I shall be drinking ale from curved horns. This hero that comes into Valhalla does not lament his death! I shall not enter Odin’s hall with fear. There I shall wait for my sons to join me. And when they do, I will bask in their tales of triumph. The Aesir will welcome me! My death comes without apology! And I welcome the Valkyries to summon me home!”
Q: Can we talk baby goats and how that completely blew up? How everyone loves you holding baby goats in the show?
Travis Fimmel: Oh, did they really? Oh, that’s funny. I don’t know if I’ve held a goat. I held a lamb one time, it was a lamb. I dunno, I just walked past and I grabbed one. I needed something to hold because the two girls sitting next to me weren’t very happy with me. It got comforting that way.
