Alexander Ludwig Covers BELLO mag in Dolce & Gabbana February 4, 2015 The latest issue of BELLO mag #67 is out. On the main cover of this Hollywood edition actor Alexander Ludwig from Vikings wearing Dolce & Gabbana, photographed in Los Angeles by Aleksandar Tomovic. this new issue is available to download worldwide on digital devices via Google Play, iTunes App store and Amazon Kindle. Measuring 6’2″, Alexander Ludwig is over six feet of man, but only 22 years old. He’s not a small guy by any means, but neither are his co-stars on his History Channel series. They measure quite evenly to him. Perhaps it was fate that landed him on Vikings, now entering its third season. Whether Hollywood fate or simple chance, Ludwig refers to his involvement on the show as “the best choice [he’s] ever made.” The Canadian actor never imagined working on a television show, he admits, but recent years have shifted his stance. “The truth is that there’s been such a revolution in the industry lately that in the context of television, it’s not that unlike film as it was before. So, when the opportunity of being on Vikings presented itself, I thought, to be consistently working with great people and already having been a fan of the show, I had to.” Ludwig plays Bjorn Lothbrock, the coming-of-age son of Ragnar Lothbrock (Travis Fmmel). One would guess that a guy the size of Alexander Ludwig is on the active side…and one would be correct. As if filming a medieval show multiple months out of the year in Ireland didn’t do enough for your figure, Ludwig is also a ski enthusiast. Having just recently returned from a pleasure trip to Japan, he enjoys, as he puts it, “some of the best snow in the world,” adding that “it has really good quality in powder, so it’s great for skiing.” His love for the sport rings through his chosen words. “I actually grew up competitive freestyle skiing and racing as a kid. I’ve always been such an adrenaline junkie and I love big mountains and skiing and jumping off cliffs, and stuff like that.” When filming, his techniques for releasing that energy are a little less icy. But based on any given shot of Alexander Ludwig at the beach, whatever they may be, they are working. “Going to the gym is also an outlet, and like meditation time for me,” he says. “Just zoning out and listening to music and just getting some time to tune everything out…I usually go early in the morning, before I leave for work. It’s very therapeutic for me. I think that’s the most important thing, though, for my own mental help. You know, to be great, I need to take care of myself first. I make sure that I make some time for that.” Read more in this month’s Hollywood issue #67 – February 2015 – of BELLO mag.
