Episode Info:

My shield-maiden co-workers were addicted to to the History Channel tv series Vikings. I overheard the intense conversations and peeped their Rollo screensavers and decided to jump into the series over Christmas. To use an old Viking word, I became enthralled.

I loved the character of Aslaug, Ragnor Lothbrok’s second wife, played by Alyssa Sutherland. I loved how much she loved her sons. It felt very modern to me.

I had interviewed Alyssa 17 years earlier for Black+White magazine. I sent an email to her agent and was able to set up a time with her across the Pacific. I loved chatting with Alyssa - she was funny, smart and brazen. “No one should listen to me for beauty advice,” she told me.

Alyssa is great on Instagram and you should follow her! She has two accounts @therealalyssas and @thelightaroundme. Follow them both!
