    My name is Selina, I’m from Switzerland (so not too far away from Ireland and I speak English fluently) I’m 21 (but I look younger) and I’m very fair. I’m 5’6” and slim.
    Vikings is a very gripping TV show I just love. I love the beautiful scenery, the wonderful costumes and the view one gets on what the Celtic life might have looked like. Since I have always been more than fascinated with the Celtic culture I would love to have even a small part in the series simply because I love the show and Ireland is one of my favorite countries. I have had some acting experience on stage and could add to a Celtic vibe with flute play. I’m also more than happy to learn new things.

    Look. Yes I love the series. But I like telling a story. Not to be in one, not for the money, but to tell a story of one of my favorite genres of dark mythology out there. When I act I not only tell a story I involve the audience in a sense that they feel drawn to the performance.
    I am a psychology major and I love what makes people tick and body language is a big must use for me.

    Previous experience:
    Play acting for kids in hospitals for a couple of years as well as a few school projects that have been highly commended on performance and story value.

    I do martial arts including Kali and Wing Chun, so I am an avid fighter.

    Hello my name is Bailey. I am 13 years old. My birthday is December 6th. I am 5″5 with brown hair and brown eyes. I love the show Vikings especially with Alexander Ludwig in it. It has been my dream to be an actor. Ever since i was a little kid. I am very hard working and very determined to try new things everyday.

I don’t have a lot of experience at being in shows, but I know I can do it. Please consider having me in this show. Contact me for any other information at or call me at 610-592-4304. Thank you for your time and consideration.

  24. Thomas Church

    My name is Thomas Church and I’ve recently been trying to start up an acting career. I understand that there are many people within this industry, but I’m not intimidated by it, and will continue to strive to get onto the big screen. I’m 5’6″ and slim, 130 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. I’m 20 years old, male, caucasian. My skills that I could bring to this picture include multiple years of experience working both as a stage-hand, and as an actor in play productions hosted by not only my high school, but another neighboring high school in the town I live in. These experiences include multiple musicals and plays, and a concert paying tribute to the old Rock & Roll of the 60s and 70s. On top of my experience acting I have also studied under multiple martial arts, such as Kendo, Kung Fu, and Judo. I’ve always thought of the Viking period as one the most interesting, along with Norse Mythology, which was one of my major studies in high school, leading me to want to be a part of this project. Along with my attached email I can be reached by cell at 507-649-0385. I’d love to be a part of this movie in any possible way to be able to get my name out there.

    I have been performing since elementary school. In middle school I performed with a small group of students in the Apollo. In high school I performed in both the junior and senior class plays, even going so far to dress at a man to get a second role in my senior class play. Not only did I do a small performance with a group of students in the roundabout theatre in NYC, I also graduated top ten of my class in the AmericanAirlines theatre. I then performed as Addaperle in The Wiz at my college. I have the experience and I love Marvel comics and movies. I know that if you choose me, I will be able to fall in line and connect with my character because I have always dreamed of being a character in a Marvel movie. Please take me experience into consideration and contact me. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.



    I’m Srikanth 21 years old Indian. I usually love to act and want to be part of casting and filming, every time i get new clothes i take pictures of me, imagines myself like the character which love most in any serial or movie, tries to practice their dialogues the way they walk, facial expression and omg a lot. Ever since i saw the trailer, i decided to watch the serial. Then after a couple of episodes its became more interesting. Ever since i see this trailer, i so love the acting of Travis’s character. The way he walks, his silence, his ideas, they way he speaks slowly but intelligent thoughts. Eventually im very much intrigued to be a part of this though i don’t have any knowledge of acting.
