See Aldhelm and Finan stretching after swinging swords

Since the new season is so close, the official social media accounts are quick to share new content. In one of the newest posts, fans get a look at Aldhelm (James Northcote) and Finan (Mark Rowley) goofing off between takes.

Fans will remember that Aldhelm was Aethelred of Mercia’s (Toby Regbo) adviser until switching sides. He chooses to help out Aethelred’s wife instead, who is called the Lady of Mercia (Millie Brady). Finan is a close companion of Uhtred’s. It’s funny to see the two of them together in this new post.

The new image shows Aldhelm and Finan stretching in full gear. Around them are numerous trailers on set. “It’s important to stretch out after a long day of sword swinging. #TheLastKingdom,” the post is captioned.

They each have their hands behind their heads and appear to be stretching. And who can blame them? All that fighting can be tedious. It’s always good to take a break now and then.
