As a brand deeply involved in the Arts from which it has been drawing its inspiration since its early days, RAYMOND WEIL is thrilled to count acclaimed TV series Vikings’ leading star Katheryn Winnick as its new Brand ambassador. Her natural beauty, dynamic presence and undisputable charisma make her the perfect match for the independent Swiss watchmaker.

Canadian-born Winnick is a diverse and talented actress who has guest-starred in numerous television shows including House M.D, Bones, and Criminal Minds and appeared in several films including Love & Other Drugs. She can next be seen in the Warner Bros. feature film Geostorm. Winnick is best known for her leading role as ‘Lagertha,’ on History Channel’s Vikings, now in its fourth season. Her role on the show has garnered her a “Best Supporting Actress” nomination at the 2015 Television Critics Choice Awards and a “Best Performance by a Lead Dramatic Actress” nomination at the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards.

A self-made woman with a strong personality and free spirit, Winnick is an accomplished martial artist who has achieved a third-degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and a second degree Black Belt in Karate. After completing her university education in Toronto, Canada, she went on to successfully pursue an acting career in New York and Los Angeles.

“We first met Katheryn Winnick on the set of the fourth season of Vikings and immediately became inspired by her strength of character and innate beauty. She perfectly embodies our feminine collections and we are delighted to welcome her as our new Brand ambassador”, says Elie Bernheim, CEO of RAYMOND WEIL.

“I am very excited about this partnership as RAYMOND WEIL shares a similar passion in celebrating the Arts, strength and beauty in women. The Brand offers elegant timepieces, which reflect style and individual personality. I am an active woman, constantly traveling and on the go. I need a watch which accessorizes and can be worn with many different outfits. RAYMOND WEIL is that Brand – beautiful watches for the active, modern woman”, declares Katheryn Winnick.

RAYMOND WEIL unveils Katheryn Winnick as the face of the Brand’s feminine collections, including the noemiacollection, a range of timepieces that capture elegance and understated timeless style with a touch of contemporary. Innocent and delicate yet mature and extremely feminine. The noemia collection reflects the modern woman while preserving its values, a challenge that RAYMOND WEIL has once again successfully assumed.

Season two of Vikings is sailing onto the History Channel in 2014, and the number one new cable series made its first appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this year. Cast members Travis Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick, Clive Standen, Jessalyn Gilsig, Gustaf Skarsgård, and George Blagden were in attendance as well as creator Michael Hirst and senior VP of development and programming Dirk Hoogstra. They are in the midst of production for season two so almost all of them had beards.

Michael Hirst said characters really get to dig their feet in next season. “In season one of any show you’re establishing characters. By season two we know a lot more about who our characters are just as our audience does.” That gives them more freedom. He continued, “In season two all of the major characters have to make huge choices and huge sacrifices. They realize whatever dreams they have, whatever expectations they have will involve sacrifices, sometimes terrible sacrifices.”

He emphasized that it gets bigger and better. “The stakes get higher. The armies get bigger. There are more boats.” George Blagden said they’re even taking their viking ship out to the ocean for the first time next week instead of just filming in a lake or on set. Viewers can expect the scale to be on another level next season.

Katheryn Winnick’s character Lagertha has to a lot to recover from next season. She’s faced not only the loss of her children but also Ragnar’s betrayal. When asked about what her reaction will be she said, “You’ll have to wait and see when she finds out the news in season two. I do know it was hard for her. Her sense of identity will be tested and it will be interesting to see how these circumstances make her a better person or a different person in one way or another.”

Every character will evolve. Blagden’s Athelstan has to choose between life as a monk and a viking. He mentioned he’s learned some viking moves in preparation. Jessalyn Gilsig’s Siggy doesn’t have a love life, but she’ll keep busy. She’s ready to knock down whoever she has to in order to get back on the chair. Clive Standen’s Rollo has reached a point where he can no longer stand in his brother’s shadow. A lot is going to change.

Vikings will make a jump forward in time, but they’re not saying exactly how soon that will happen. It doesn’t seem like it will occur in the season premiere. Hirst knows there are loose ends. “I left a lot of cliffhangers at the end of the last episode. Those were immediate issues that needed fairly immediate resolution and that has to happen before we can move forward in time.”

Michael Hirst talked to Huffington Post about season 2 of “Vikings“.

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read on unless you have seen the Season 1 finale of History’s “Vikings,” titled “All Change.”

The season finale of “Vikings” saw Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) embark on a quest to negotiate peace in a land dispute between King Horik (Donal Logue) and Jarl Borg (Thorbjørn Harr), leaving wife Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) in Kattegat where a sudden and deadly plague claimed many lives — including their daughter’s. On his trip to Gotaland, we saw Ragnar tempted by the mysterious Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland), and the chemistry between them now threatens to undo Ragnar’s family completely.

The Huffington Post spoke to “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst about the surprising events of “All Change” and where our characters might go from here, since “Vikings” has already been renewed for Season 2. Tread lightly, there are potential spoilers for future seasons ahead.
