As an actor, sometimes you've gotta take the jobs that you may not want to do. It's so hard to work as an actor.

As a kid, my nickname was Tarzan. I never wore shoes, and I walked around and fished and camped out and just was a grub.

I'm a hell of a bloody good dancer.

George Blagden is a great actor.

Nobody wants to play a one-dimensional character.

Because the Vikings never documented anything - they couldn't read or write - the history is always gonna be a little up in the air.

Half of acting is you're very intimidated, overcoming your fears, letting yourself be vulnerable in front of people and that sort of stuff.

I've never worked out, mate. It doesn't interest me.

I'm not into 'things.'

There's a lot of sacrifices you have to make to be the boss.

I don't have a place anywhere but Australia; I just don't spend much time there.

It's a bit weird; everybody is trying to be different, but then they're exactly the same as whatever mob they hang out with.

'Vikings' has been a great experience. You get so many great friends. And I love Ireland and the people and crew. It's a beautiful place.

I've got Aussie country pride for sure. I just like where I grew up. I think you've got lots in common with the people who grew up the same as you.

I actually don't think Ireland has a summer. I never experienced a summer there. It was just so wet.

'Vikings' is filmed in Ireland, and 400 people get jobs from that show. Their economy is not that good, so I'm proud of what we've done and will do anything to help that show.

I grew up on a farm. We had 11 dogs and, like, 1,500 cattle.

Some actors are better with words than me. I prefer to play it rather than say it - and keep people thinking.

I'm always getting texts asking why I'm not responding on Instagram or Facebook, and I'm like, 'It's not me. You're writing to some stranger.'

Women are so complicated, it's unbelievable.

If I went on vacation, I'd rather go camping than stay in some four-star hotel... My friends treat me the same at home. They just want to sit down with you and have a beer.

I want a job where I work for eight months, then do nothing for four.

It's a good challenge as an actor to express feelings without saying too many words.

I don't like to be the only person talking in a room.

I'm always thinking I'm messing up. I did a lot of classes. I can't stand being on stage or the only one talking in a room, so class really helped me deal with that. It doesn't really get any easier, but it helps you focus on the acting.

The Vikings were the last people to fight with axes, which must have been horrible.

I love being an idiot, and acting lets you be an idiot.

I'm always just travelling out of a suitcase. You get used to it.

It's embarrassing standing in front of the camera and getting your picture taken.

I didn't know exactly what a hipster was until we were in Brooklyn. It's like a species. On first seeing it, I was like, 'Oh my God, oh my God...' Pre-tt-y fun-ny.

Religion is such a path with people.

I've always built furniture and done farm work.

A lot of people talk too much. They speak... except they don't.

True stories are way more interesting.

I'm comfortable in any situation. I don't have fears about a lot of things. It's not a survival thing, but on a farm, you always look after yourself. You're very independent, but you're still very family-oriented.

I hate speeches.

My dad and one brother are working the farm. They laughed when I said I wanted to act. We work very hard, but for my family, it's just another experience in life, y'know?

People take years learning how to act; it's a skill, not just a job. If I tried it out and thought I'd be OK, then perhaps I'd go for it, but it's not the kind of thing you can get into just because of your looks.

I dress like a bum all the time. I'm a pretty casual fella.

I haven't changed a bit. I go out with my mates, but I probably have to watch what I do a little more.

I've been lucky to do the job I do because I've travelled, and that's probably the best perk of the job... well, that and the free lunches.

I eat with my hands when I am home alone!

The landscape in Ireland is just - I've never been in such a beautiful place with the lakes and ocean and everything.

That's the only thing I'm jealous about 'Game of Thrones': they get to go to Spain all the time.

I'm way more attracted to character stuff and darker roles. It's just my personality, I guess.

Good shows tend to be more fun to do. If you feel like you are doing something good and making a good show, it is a lot more enjoyable.

I'm from such a little place, most people live and work there their whole lives.

I love Mel Gibson... I'd like to ask him for a job.

I think there should be comedy in everything; it doesn't matter what you're doing.
