Can we talk about this, for a minute? As a new season approaches, I will go back and watch the previous 2, just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I do this for every show that I watch. As I begin again, I am astounded at the acting and the work that goes into these episodes.
Every single one of these actors are bad ass, but let’s talk about Alex. The majority of his scenes are done on his hands and knees. This boy drags himself across floors, the ground, up hills, over tables, even sword fights sitting down and what not.
Now, acting is a physical job, we all know that and any actor that puts them self into their character deserves credit. I could never do what they do, but since he came into the role as Ivar (also, bless James Quinn Markey because he was a kick ass little Ivar) I believe he has to be one of the most talented actors that I have ever watched.
Yes, he’s pretty and what not, but take that away and just watch him. The way he moves, the way he fights, even the way he speaks as that character. Alex, boy, he is going to go far and I can’t wait!
