Clive Standen and Gustaf Skarsgård both auditioned to play Ragnar. Travis Fimmel auditioned to play Rollo. Fimmel wanted to play Floki.
Forgive me Floki. I know I should trust you but I need proof.
King Horik: Yes, prove to me I can trust you. Prove to me you are on my side.
Floki: How can I prove it?
King Horik: Kill someone. Someone who matters.
Ragnar Lothbrok's sons are referred as "Bjorn Lothbrok", "Ivar Lothbrok", etc. However, Lothbrok is a nickname (meaning "shaggy breeches"), not a family name. The sons should properly be referred to as "Bjorn Ragnarsson" (i.e. son of Ragnar), etc. Family names where not used in Scandinavia at that time and did not become common until 17th century and not the standard until the 19th.
In the U.S. all episodes were censored for violence, nudity, profanity, and time restrains for their broadcast on the History Channel. However, the uncensored versions of the episodes can be found on the U.S. Blu-rays. Each episode is presented as an "Original Version" (censored) or "Extended Version" (uncensored).
