Bjorn Ironside has invaded Canada. Cameras are officially set to start rolling on Season 4 of Vikings in Ireland this spring, but the Canadian co-production is getting a head start in northern Ontario.
History Canada has confirmed that Alexander Ludwig—who portrays Ragnar Lothbrok’s eldest son on the network’s Thursday night drama—is in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., working on preproduction for Season 4 prior to initial production starting on the Emerald Isle. History didn’t release any details as to the storyline surrounding Ludwig being in Ontario.
On Friday, the city’s mayor, Christian Provenzano, posted a picture via his Twitter feed, welcoming the Vancouver native to the area.
Last Thursday, Ludwig tweeted his location to followers and posted a picture on his Instagram account showing him arriving in the outpost.
Vikings airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on History.
