Uhtred and Sihtric in ‘The Last Kingdom’

Uhtred is a Saxon who is supposed to be the Lord of Bebbanburg. He becomes a Dane after being adopted and raised as one, although he was originally taken as a slave. He finds himself caught between the worlds of the Saxons and the Danes, which gets more complicated as time goes on.

Sihtric is the son of Kjartan (Alexandre Willaume), born out of wedlock. He’s a warrior sworn to Uhtred, and alongside Finan (Mark Rowley), the three are as close as can be.

‘The Last Kingdom’: The Major Questions That Need to Be Answered in Season 5

On June 16, both Dreymon and Fedaravicius shared a photo of the two of them. Arnas shared the image on Instagram first, and Alexander shared a cropped version on Instagram right after him on Instagram as well.

In the photo, Dreymon and Fedaravicius are dressed as Uhtred and Sihtric respectively in warrior attire. Dreymon’s head is facing to the side away from the camera, and Fedaravicius’ head is close to Dreymon’s face. It appears Fedaravicius has his tongue out right near Dreymon’s forehead, and it’s unclear exactly what’s going on in the photo. They have dirt on their faces and hands, and Fedaravicius has what looks like blood on his face. They are also holding items in their hands as well. There is someone else in the shot off to the side too.

Dreymon tagged a number of accounts in the photo, as well as Fedaravicius’ and the official account for the series. He captioned the post on Instagram: “We all have that one friend who just can’t keep his tongue off your face….”

Over 126,000 people liked Dreymon’s post, and over 1,900 people commented on it.
