After the fifth and final series, Uhtred of Bebbanburg star Alexander Dreymon was praised by fellow The Last Kingdom cast. Father Pyrlig star Cavan Clerkin admitted it was “incredible” to watch Alexander because of the scale of the Netflix series and the task he undertook.
Cavan has starred alongside Alexander in all five series of The Last Kingdom and is therefore fully supportive of his co-star’s decision to step behind the camera.
Recalling what it was like to work with him as a director, the Father Pyrlig star commented, “There are so many characters, and so many settings, and we have all the battles, and there are multiple cameras.
“And then you have to think he was playing there too.
“So he was literally leading, stepping in, doing his bit, watching it on screen, coming back. Phenomenal.”

“Plus they’re so good, they’re really in top form. The sets are amazing, the film crew, the operators, everyone. I’m blessed, to be honest with you. It’s amazing .”
Alexander will soon be back on screens in the spin-off film, Seven Kings Must Die, which will hopefully air in 2023.
The film will be a two-hour follow-up to the Netflix series and Alexander will reprise his role as Uhtred.
It is likely that there will be a conflict between Uhtred and King Edward (Timothy Innes).
