It's hard to live up to those photos. It isn't all really me. Thank God for computer editing and special camera lenses and lighting.
I prefer to play it rather than say it - and keep people thinking. My biggest thing with Ragnar was to make him someone the viewer can relate to, to show why he does some bad stuff. He does everything for his family and people. If that means chopping a few heads off, so be it.
I didn't get into acting to be famous, but to disturb people's sensibilities. To make people think, to make people relate to my character's pain and therefore feel that they're not so alone in their circumstances.
I want to always grow as an actor, and one needs the kind of role that affords that opportunity
