Vancouver’s Viking

Alexander Ludwig started his Hollywood career as a child actor. After appearing in a couple of TV movies, he went on to star in big feature films like “Race to Witch Mountain,” “Grown Ups 2,” “Lone Survivor” and “The Hunger Games.” Ludwig also plays Bjorn Ironside on History’s “Vikings,”  and his character has really been coming into his own.  As his strength and smarts continue to grow you are starting to see that he is challanging his father, Ragnar, for power.  If you are not aware who Alexander is, it is time.  Like right now.

How well do you know the 23-year-old Canadian actor? Below are some cool facts that you probably that I have found about his career that you not yet be aware of.ykgwk6de

He had to convince his parents to let him pursue acting.

Ludwig’s mom, Sharlene Martin Ludwig, is a former actress, while his dad, Harald Horst Ludwig, is an executive at Lions Gate Entertainment. Although his parents are no stranger to the entertainment industry, they didn’t want him to try acting. However, since becoming an actor was his ultimate dream, he did his best to change his parents’ minds.

“My mom and dad were kind of iffy about the whole thing,” Ludwig told Canada.com back in 2007. “You know as well as I do the whole kid-actor thing can get a bit warped. But eventually, they said — ‘OK Alexander, if this is what you want, go for it.'”

He met his original agent after starring in a “Harry Potter” toy commercial.

Ludwig started his acting career at the age of 9 when he did a commercial for a “Harry Potter” slime chamber play set.  I wish I could say that I remember the commercial, but I dug it up for you!

He’s a recording artist.  Sort of…

Ludwig released his first single “Liv It Up (Teenage Wasteland)” on March 1, 2012. Which isn’t his best piece of work, and he doesn’t seem to be following up his musical career.  He looks better all viking up’d anyways.

He could have played Peeta on “The Hunger Games.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ludwig revealed that he was one of the final three actors that were considered for the role of Peeta, which was ultimately given to Josh Hutcherson
sweet-buns-hunger-games-meme“Originally, it was between me, Josh and another guy for Peeta,” Ludwig told the outlet. “And then when Gary called me and asked me if I would like to play the role of Cato, I just jumped on the opportunity. Because I’ve never really played a bad guy, and I just thought it would be really, really fun, to just dive into the whole twisted psychotic-ness of it.”
