‘The Northman’ Cast and Character Guide: Who Plays Who in the Epic Viking Film? (Photos)

Known for his psychological horror films “The Witch” and “The Lighthouse,” writer-director Robert Eggers takes on his most ambitious project yet in “The Northman.” Set in A.D. 895, this bloody valentine to the Vikings follows Amleth, a young North Atlantic with loving parents and the promise of inheriting a kingdom. That all comes crashing down when his father is murdered by his uncle before his own eyes. He flees the island, swearing to one day return and avenge his family.

That synopsis may bring to mind stories like “Hamlet” and “Braveheart,” but “The Northman” is a uniquely Eggers vision. The epic tale is brought to life by a star-studded cast including Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman and Anya Taylor-Joy.
