'Vikings' star Clive Standen on new season

Posted: Updated:
British actor Clive Standen who began acting as a teenager, credits his mother and "a girl" for his initial foray into the business.

"My mum took drama. She wanted to be a drama therapist. She was a mature student. I had a lot of 17 and 18 year olds around my house coming to rehearse drama," said Standen.

At school, Standen signed up for a class because there was a female classmate who wanted to try it to too and the rest is history.

Standen went on to star in several movies and TV series including Robin Hood, Camelot and now Vikings, one of the highest rated cable shows on the History Channel.

Standen plays 'Rollo' who is out to kill his brother, 'Ragnar.'

Season two of 'Vikings' premieres Thursday at 10 p.m.
