Brida’s journey in ‘The Last Kingdom’

Brida was a Saxon child when the Danes took her in. She grows up in their culture and adopts their beliefs. She grew up with the main character Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon), and later they became lovers. Their relationship is extremely complicated, and in season 4, Brida actually holds a grudge against Uhtred for not killing her when the Welsh find her in battle, as she thought she would then go to Valhalla. As a result, she’s taken as a slave, although she is eventually freed by Sigtryggr (Eysteinn Sigurðarson). Later, Brida goes into labor with Cnut’s (Magnus Bruun) child, someone she killed when she learned of his involvement in the death of Young Ragnar (Tobias Santelmann).

On June 15, 2021, Cox shared a must-see video for The Last Kingdom fans on Instagram of a “short sequence” that didn’t appear in the show. The actor is dressed as Brida in the video, taken on a computer screen from a video camera. 

During the video, Brida swordfights in battle. She fights with a few people and suddenly sees someone who isn’t recognizable from the angle of the shot. She stops to stare at them as a battle rages around her. Finally, Brida looks off, then looks back again at the unknown person.

Cox captioned the post: “Level 2 😎: This short sequence never actually made it into TLK… Who can guess which season (1-4), and which scene it would have been for? #thelastkingdom #brida.” She also tagged a few accounts as well. Over 39,000 people viewed the post, and over 200 people commented on it.
