On May 31, 2021, Dreymon shared a behind-the-scenes image that fans will surely want to see. In it, Dreymon can be seen on a screen. In the shot, Dreymon is dressed as Uhtred, complete with his sword on his back and his hair up. Behind him are other people in the shot who are out of focus, including Eliza Butterworth, who plays Lady Aelswith, and Stefanie Martini, who plays Eadith, as Dreymon tagged them in the post. Eliza wears a cloak, and Stefanie wears a black dress.

A chair can be seen off in the distance, and Dreymon’s hand, which is center stage, is touching another hand. It’s unclear if it’s his other hand or someone else’s. Dreymon smiles, and an image of a heart was added in the center of where the hands touch.

Dreymon also tagged Netflix and The Last Kingdom’s official account in the post. He captioned the post saying, “❤️to our B-Cam team,” and he tagged a few accounts as well.

It’s an interesting behind-the-scenes post that fans can surely appreciate. Hopefully, it won’t be the last, since production is happening right now. 

Although season 5 will be the last of The Last Kingdom, fans still have some time to wrap their heads around it. Hopefully, season 5 will be everything fans need it to be.
