It’s fair to say that there has been a lot of television watched in isolation during this pandemic. Some of it good, some of it bad. A recent discovery, even though I started the first episode months ago but wasn’t in the mood, is The Last Kingdom. At first I wasn’t sure if I was up for Ye Olde Worlde political intrigue and warfare but towards the end of that first episode the timeline jumps forward and the main character goes from a young boy to a very, very handsome man.

The actor that plays that character is Alexander Dreymon, a 37 year old actor originally from Germany but grew up in the US, France and Switzerland. If you look on his Instagram account, he may not post much but he has a cheeky sense of humour and a twinkle in his eye.

He played a German gay prostitute in the film Christopher and his Kind but that movie bored me to tears. Apparently he also pops up in American Horror Story: Coven but I’m not good with scary shows so I haven’t seen it. It is apparent though that he goes from hot boy next door, clean cut to scruffy long haired Viking (we know I love a viking) very nicely.

The gif below is from The Last Kingdom but way back in 2015. He is still filming the series but it would sadly seem that he doesn’t get nude very often. What a shame. He is German so he can’t be that adverse to nudity, can he?
