Eadith and Stiorra in ‘The Last Kingdom’

Fans will recall that Eadith is the sister of Eardwulf (Jamie Blackley). Her brother is in charge of Aethelred’s (Toby Regbo) household guards, and she is manipulated by him into being Aethelred’s mistress. After helping Aethelflaed (Millie Brady), who is Aethelred’s wife, escape after Eadith’s brother kills Aethelred, Eadith ends up having to find Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) to deliver a message to him for Aethelflaed about where to meet them. Then she finds herself allied with Uhtred and his warriors, staying with them even after Aethelflaed pays her off and explains she can’t stay in Aegelesburg.

Stiorra is the daughter of the main character, Uhtred, and his late wife, Lady Gisela (Peri Baumeister). She goes off with Sigtryggr (Eysteinn Sigurðarson), a Dane who took Winchester, as a stipulation for him leaving Winchester and being given possession of Eoferwic. At first a hostage, she goes willingly to Daneland with him.

Production is currently underway in Hungary for season 5 of The Last Kingdom. Stefanie Martini recently shared an image with Ruby Hartley that fans will want to see. It’s unclear if it’s from the current production session, but it definitely could be as Stefanie tagged the post in Budapest, Hungary. Plus, other cast members have been sharing images together recently.

In the post from May 18, 2021, Stefanie has on a blue and white cardigan with a black shirt underneath as she looks at the camera with her blonde hair down. By her side is Ruby, who wears a red ensemble with her brown hair flowing down in front of her. She has her head at an angle for the shot, which appears to be taken in front of a window.

Stefanie captioned the post: “Struby,” as she tagged Ruby in it as well. 

It’s always nice to see images of our favorite cast members together. We’ll have to see what other photos are shared now that production is underway.
