Jamie Blackley will play Erdulf, Edith’s brother, Etherred’s new right hand and rival Uhred, which should lead to a lot of conflict. Ruby Hartley will play Stora, adult daughter Uhred and Gisela (Perry Baumeister). Matte Haman will also play a new character named Cenric, and Oscar Skagerberg will play Björgülf.
