Why did Katheryn Winnick leave Vikings?

After six seasons of playing Viking shield woman, Lagertha, Winnick bowed out from the historical drama.

Winnick simply left the series as her character’s story had come to an end.

Her character was killed by Ragnar’s (played by Travis Fimmel) son Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) as prophesised by the Seer (John Kavanagh).

However, she remained a vital part of the Vikings story and even returned to direct the eighth episode Valhalla Can Wait.

Speaking at the Comic-Con @Home panel this summer, Winnick reflected on leaving the show.

She said: “I guess it’s bittersweet if I’m 100 percent honest.

“Just in terms of being on the show for so long and having it aired and now that Lagertha has gone to Valhalla, it was definitely harder than I thought I would go through just personally, just seeing my death.

“Watching Lagertha just transition over to Valhalla, it was definitely a bittersweet moment in a lot of ways.

“Obviously all the hard work, I made some good friends, but also sad to see it end.

“But Michael [Hirst] wrote me such a great death and funeral.”
