There will be new characters in the upcoming season

The first new addition is Eadith, played by Stefanie Martini. The first image shows her alongside her brother, who is also Aethelred’s (Toby Regbo) right-hand man, Eardwulf, played by Jamie Blackley. The first image shows brother and sister looking at each other. The second is a better look at Eadith. The third is a closer shot of her brother on the back of a horse.

The next new face is Eysteinn Sigurdarson who plays Sigtryggr. He sports a killer scar going down his face. He’s clearly a Dane and he’ll be a unique addition to the cast.

Next, we see Uhtred’s daughter, Stiorra, played by Ruby Hartley. She’s hanging out by an open gate and looking just like her mother. She even has a knife strapped to her dress.

Then we see a Young Uhtred played by Finn Elliot. He’s wearing a cross and sporting a scratch under his right eye.

The last image is of Ossian Perret who plays Wihtgar. It’s unclear what roles some of the characters will have, but it’s exciting to know that season 4 will include so many new and fresh faces.
