Who Plays Queen Ælfgifu In Vikings: Valhalla?


"Vikings: Valhalla" sees Norse legends like Leif Erikson, Freydis Eriksdotter, and King Canute the Great portrayed by Sam Corlett, Frida Gustavsson, and Bradley Freegard respectively. However, there's one actress in this series we're betting TV addicts everywhere are already very familiar with.

Queen Ælfgifu, the first wife of King Canute the Great, doesn't appear in "Vikings: Valhalla" until late in Season 1, but she makes a significant impact on its direction. The actress playing the role of Queen Ælfgifu is played by Pollyanna McIntosh who has appeared in a variety of productions throughout her decades in the film and television industry.

She is best know for her work on "The Walking Dead” where she portrayed Anne, the leader of the Scavengers in Seasons 7, 8, and 9. Her career goes all the way back to 2005 and to date, she has appeared in more than 50 different productions, including recent roles in AMC's "Lodge 49" and Netflix's "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."
