The History Channel has been giving us some very impressive original series over the past few years and, one of the biggest and best of the lot of them would have to be the hit series Vikings, which is now in its second season. Vikings was created by the British talent Michael Hirst, who has been talking about the casting process for the show.

It seems that things were not going too well for Michael Hirst and co. and they were still without a leading man just a week before the series was set to begin shooting. Fortunately though they came across something very different in Travis Fimmel. Michael says that, while most of the auditions he saw were trying to hard to be a stereotypical Viking, Travis gave them an audition tape that got their imaginations running wild.
 
Hirst explained in a recent interview, "Travis's tape came in the very next day, I think, and he had filmed it in the kitchen of his house and he didn't dress up like a Viking. He didn't pretend he wasn't Australian. He just did the scene very quietly and myself and the director, who is a Swedish guy, we said, 'We think maybe we found him.' Everyone loved what he did when he came over to Ireland and we cast him, although a lot of people were full of trepidation. But he is perfect."
