Although some have resorted to desperate measures to keep themselves occupied during the ongoing coronavirus lockdown, one star of hit series Vikings took to Instagram with some much needed positivity. The latest post was met with overwhelming approval from fans.
Gustaf Skarsgård immediately became a fan favourite when he was introduced as Floki in the first season of the iconic History Channel series, Vikings.
Although the eccentric boat builder was considered the backbone of the series by some fans, Floki hasn’t been seen on the show since season five.
This is because the Viking hero seemed to have met a grisly end when he was crushed beneath an active volcano.
However, despite this brutal death scene, many fans are still convinced Floki will make his highly anticipated return to the series before the season six finale.

In the meantime, Gustaf has been keeping fans’ spirits up with his recent post on Instagram, in which he lays down some incredible verses he wrote during lockdown.
Accompanying the post, Gustaf commented: “Trying to stay creative even when everything is shut down. Wrote this little poem reflecting the current crisis. Hope you are all safe and well.”
As well as taking shots at world leaders’ poor handling of the coronavirus pandemic, Gustaf voices his own personal frustrations during the poem as well as echoing the fears of populations around the globe.
One particularly poignant line said: “I just hope we don’t resort to chaos and calamity, now we’re finally forced to face our own mortality.”

Many members of the Vikings cast showed their appreciation for Gustaf’s new post, including Bjorn Ironside himself, Alexander Ludwig, who commented: “DUDE!!!! Unreal!!!”
Hopefully this could become a more regular occurrence for the Vikings star, with many other actors choosing to focus their creativity on additional projects as the global lockdown puts their acting careers on hold.
In addition to Gustaf’s poetry, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown recently confirmed she has been focusing on recording new music as she isolates with her brother in Georgia.
Meanwhile, the One World: Together at Home live stream concert pooled together a huge roster of celebrities, managing to raise $127m for coronavirus relief.

Gustaf’s increased social media presence has caused some speculation for the actor’s heavily tipped return to Vikings in season six.
Lagertha star Katheryn Winnick recently took to social media with a series of snaps with Gustaf, prompting many viewers to lament the absence of two of the show’s biggest stars.
As Bjorn Ironside was dealt a fatal blow in season six midseason finale, fans have theorised the final episode could show a glimpse of the Norse afterlife, Valhalla.
The appearance of the spiritual realm would allow several killed characters to make a thrilling return for the series’ final season.
