Vikings Shield Maiden: A Casting Call

You might be surprised to know I'm  not a huge fan of the Vikings show on the History Channel. I tried explaining it recently to a friend that there was something about the violence I couldn't take, which is funny because Zombies and Quentin Tarantino movies don't bother me at all. I think it's something about stylized verses realism. Maybe the violence in Vikings is just too real for me?

I don't know, but I still really enjoy the images that come out of that show and this new one of shield maiden, Lagertha, is perhaps one of the AWESOMEST things I've recently seen

I found the image in relation to a casting call from the History Channel for extras to play shield maidens in  upcoming episodes. I wish I lived in Ireland, because I would so try out for this, just so I could maybe have the chance to look this bad ass.
