Get a behind-the-scenes look at Lady Aelswith

Lady Aelswith was King Alfred’s (David Dawson) wife and she is the mother of the current King of Wessex, King Edward (Timothy Innes). She’s known for being a devout Christian who is more than a little opinionated. In the new behind-the-scenes images, Butterworth is posing as Aelswith in a few shots. Her facial expressions are slightly different in each one, yet she looks like her usual serious self.

“Maintaining Aelswith’s composed face takes a bit of practice. #TheLastKingdom,” the post is captioned.

Butterworth decided to comment on the post with a hilarious message: “I call this look the ‘Triple S’ – SASSY. SAXON. SENORITA. 💁🏻‍♀️.”

Fans react to the new images of Lady Aelswith

Butterworth is clearly a talented actress to play the extremely complicated Aelswith. A lot of fans seem to dislike the character and it’s mostly because of the way she treats Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon). She plays the character well and people seem to notice.

One Instagram user might dislike her, but they appreciate the actress’ beauty. “I hate her but the actress is so pretty! 🥺,” the user said.

Another fan hopes that Aelswith has changed this season. “Aelswith, I hope your attitude has changed in this new season..👀,” the fan wrote.

It’s hard to believe when looking at pictures of Aelswith compared to Butterworth who plays her that they are the same person. “Honestly can’t get over how different you look. Great actress holding that composure 👌👌👌,” a fan said.

Fans “love to hate” Lady Aelswith. “Cannot wait. Love to hate this character. She works me up with her proper arrogance! Great job,” someone else wrote.

Others seem to wholeheartedly agree. “I hate her character, which means that she is an amazing actress,” another fan said.

Someone else is hoping Aelswith will be nice to Uhtred in season 4. “I too hate and love your character. I just wish you could be nicer to Uhtred. How many times he’s helped you,” the Instagram user commented.

Another fan of the series actually hopes something bad happens to Lady Aelswith. “This is one character I hope is killed off in season 4,” they wrote.

Fans can’t wait to see Lady Aelswith and everyone else in season 4 of The Last Kingdom again when the series returns.
