Although there are swords and epic battle scenes in both Vikings and the upcoming film Warcraft, it appears that’s where the similarities end; at least as far as playing the two different roles go. The Aussie star told IGN, that the fighting in Warcraft was a “more stylized nature” and filming involved much more imagination. A version of filming he doesn’t prefer over “face to face” acting.

Warcraft is due in theaters Summer 2016 and the fourth season of Vikings returns early 2016.
