Followers of Vikings on Amazon Prime are fans of king of Kattegat, Bjorn Ironside (played by Alexander Ludwig). One of his loyal followers is a former shield maiden called Amma (Kristy Dawn Dinsmore). One thing fans may not have known is the pair are actually dating in real life.

In the Vikings series Bjorn Ironside is one of the sons of the legendary Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel).

Alexander Ludwig, who plays the older version of Bjorn, came into the show during the second series.

Bjorn is a true warrior and got his nickname Ironside as he has always bounced back from injury.

He has a number of wives and girlfriends in the series, and is currently married to both Gunnhild (Ragga Ragnars) and Ingrid (Lucy Martin).

Dinsmore is a professional dancer and actress who is believed to be from Canada.

Kristy made her Vikings debut in the fifth season of the series.

She told YVR Screen Scene she was really nervous and had a number of panic attacks.

She said: “We did some boat scenes, and in one scene, I’m retching and sticking my head out the window.

“But Vikings is so good because there’s a family aspect and everyone is so supportive and they gave me the time and space to see how much I could take.”
