'The Last Kingdom': Fans React to an Official Look at Haesten: 'I Like This Look on Haesten'

Fans of The Last Kingdom probably know by now, but season 5 will be the final season of the series. It’s still a hard pill to swallow for some fans. However, there’s still one season to go before it’s all really over. 

The official social media accounts for the series have been sharing official looks at some of the characters ahead of the new season. Even Haesten (Jeppe Beck Laursen) has been shared, and fans recently reacted to his official look.

Haesten in ‘The Last Kingdom’

Haesten is a Dane, and he plays both sides when it suits him. He causes some trouble over the years. In season 4, he abducts Lady Aelswith (Eliza Butterworth) along with King Edward’s (Timothy Innes) son, Aethelstan, and Uhtred’s (Alexander Dreymon) daughter, Stiorra (Ruby Hartley). Haesten even tries to have Uhtred and his men killed, but that of course doesn’t play out how he expected.

On August 18, 2021, the official social media accounts for the series shared a look at Haesten in season 5. The image has the name of the series in the upper left corner. Then in the middle is a good look at Haesten. He still has his tattoo near his eye, but his hair is now different and shaved at the sides. He has some hair in the middle, which is up and out of his face. He still has a beard, and he looks off while he wears furs and dark-colored clothing.

Below is a quote from Haesten. “’I spy on everyone…’ – Haesten.”
