WATCH: The Witcher recently returned to Netflix for its second season

Frida Gustavsson is one of the leading stars of Vikings: Valhalla, taking on the role of Freydís Eiríksdóttir, the daughter of the founder of Greenland, Erik the Red. Frida appears alongside other actors including Sam Corlett, Leo Suter, Johannes Haukur and Caroline Henderson.

But fans of The Witcher will recognise Frida thanks to her role in the Netflix fantasy show as Ma/Visenna, the mother of Geralt of Rivia. She played the role in season one of the drama, which was released in 2019.

"As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings begin an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields," the synopsis for Vikings: Valhalla reads.
