You've Never Seen the Vikings Cast Like This Before

The History Channel's hit show Vikings comes back for season four recently, introducing us to yet another love interest for Ragnar. The history-centric series has caught our attention, along with scores of devoted fans. A huge part of that is due to the camera-friendly cast, who tend to be caked in dirt, clothed in warrior garb, and rocking various era-appropriate hair on the show (but still looking sexy). That's why it's so fun to see the cast out of costume and all glammed up on the red carpet. Here is how the main cast cleans up on the red carpet — some are almost unrecognizable!
