Vikings Raids Comic-Con, Promise Bigger Battles to Come on Season 3

at .  Updated at .

Just like the show, you never know what's going to get inside the Vikings press room at Comic-Con.

Over the weekend, journalists were treated to conversations with series stars and its creator, buoyed by generous portions of fruit, cheese, wine and beer - quite unusual for such an outing... but what else would we expect from a Vikings raid?

It's always fun to discover how well a cast and crew get along, and the Vikings cast clearly has a lot of love and respect for each other. During the round table discussions, there were a lot of pranks being played, all of which you'll see a bit in the following videos.

Kathryn Winnick, for instance, talked about the challenges of being a modern woman relating to Lagertha, her new status as a full Earl and discovering her sexuality, as well as the difficulties of her "son" becoming a grown man right before her eyes.

Alexander Ludwig talked about the historical aspect of Bjorn taking over for his father, Ragnar, and the humilities he has to endure by his older cast mates. He also makes a valiant effort to save my camera from certain disaster - what a gentleman!

Clive Standen and Travis Fimmel talk about future raids that Rollo and Ragnar will embark on, along their relationship with Athelstan... while excitedly using the refreshments for wage war within the press room.

They provide amazing insight into Ragnar's relationships with Lagertha and Aslaug while photographers followed them from table to table, furiously snapping photos and express their surprise at the intensity of the upcoming battle scenes.

Finally, creator Michael Hirst notes that the series will visit Paris during what he considers the dawn of the Vikings age that we'll experience during Vikings Season 3. Hirst's excitement is evident as he talks about the history and characters in depth.

Vikings Quotes

Ragnar: I have something to say. I did not become Earl because I aspired to be one. It came about because of other people's actions. And I did not become king out of ambition, but once again I had no choice as a result of other people's actions. But nonetheless, I am king. King Ragnar, that is my name. What does a king do Bjorn?
Bjorn: He rules.
Ragnar: Yes, good... he rules. And as a ruler, I have the last say. Me! Not you, not you and not you.

Ragnar: What do you see?
Bjorn: Power, the power of a king.
Ragnar: Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst and corrupts the best. I never asked for power. Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up.
