Say hello to characters in season 4 of ‘The Last Kingdom’

Since there are so many characters in the new season, they are broken up into three posts. “Heroes and villains, allies and traitors, friends and foes. Season 4 is just 1 week away! #TheLastKingdom,” the post is captioned.

The first post starts off with Haesten, played by Jeppe Beck Laursen. He’s looking like a fierce Dane with the scars to prove it. He’s in his battle uniform and clearly ready for a fight.

Next, we have the infamous Brida (Emily Cox) with hair up and dark makeup around her eyes. She has her usual look and demeanor. Cnut, played by Magnus Bruun, is next up in the announcement.

Hild, played by Eva Birthistle, will also be returning for season 4. She’s looking hopeful and ready to spread the word. Aldhelm is the next to be announced and he’s played by James Northcote.

Steapa, played by Adrian Bouchet, will also be part of the new season. He looks ready for anything and he’s got his usual scar on his face. Aethelhelm (Adrian Schiller) is next up. Viewers will remember that he is King Edward’s (Timothy Innes) father-in-law.

More characters are highlighted

The next post featuring the announcement of the characters in season 4 starts with Aethelflaed, played by Millie Brady. She’s looking concerned, yet her usual calm self.

We then get to see Aethelflaed’s brother and the King of Wessex, King Edward. He’s wearing his crown and looking just as serious as his father used to.

Finan (Mark Rowley) is highlighted and he’s holding his sword and looking like he’s ready to use it at any moment. He’s clearly seen a lot and he has the scars to prove it.

Aelflaed, played by Amelia Clarkson, is highlighted as well. She’s Edward’s wife and clearly fitting into her role as his companion nicely. Osferth, played by Ewan Mitchell will also be back for season 4.

A new face in Aethelred’s right-hand man, Eardwulf, played by Jamie Blackley, will also be part of the new season. The next image is another new character played by Eysteinn Sigurdarson, who portrays Sigtrygg. He sports a killer scar going down his face.

Father Pyrlig is played by Cavan Clerkin and he will be back for season 4. He looks extremely serious as usual.

Uhtred, son of Uhtred will return

Uhtred, played by Alexander Dreymon is the first to be highlighted in the latest post with the cast announcements. He’s sporting his usual sword and appears ready for the next battle ahead.

The next image after Uhtred is Aethelred, played by Toby Regbo. He’s looking like his usual self-centered self. We’ll see what happens with him and his wife in the new season.

Lady Aelswith, played Eliza Butterworth, will of course return to guide her son the king in the right direction. She’s wearing her own crown and looking as serious as you’d expect.

Sihtric is next up. He’s played by the talented Arnas Fedaravicius and appears as loyal as ever. Eadith, played by Stefanie Martini, is a new character in the upcoming season and she is highlighted as well.

Father Beocca, played by Ian Hart, will return to play the beloved role. He’s looking serious and possibly still mourning the loss of his dear wife.

Aelfric, played by Joseph Millson, will also be a part of season 4. Fans will remember he is Uhtred’s evil uncle. The last image is a new addition to the cast in the form of Uhtred’s daughter, Stiorra, played by Ruby Hartley.

It looks like season 4 of The Last Kingdom is going to be full of interesting characters. Fans will find out for themselves on April 26 when the new season drops on Netflix.
