Katheryn Winnick On 'Vikings' Early Renewal And Passionate Fans
As Lagertha on History's Vikings, Katheryn Winnick has the enviable job of playing one of TV's toughest women while also being plenty cool herself. With the series currently airing its longest season yet and recently renewed for another, Starpulse checked in with Katheryn to discuss how doing 20 episodes changed the pace of the show - and the most interesting things that have come out of Lagertha having incredibly passionate fans.

25 Celebrities Who Have Black Belts
Achieving a black belt involves a lot of hard work, focus, and dedication. Several stars in Hollywood have put in the necessary time and energy to obtain the rank -- and some may surprise you.

Sarah Michelle Gellar has studied kickboxing, boxing, and gymnastics and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Her experience came in handy while she filmed the popular cult TV series "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" from 1997 to 2003. Of course, a stunt double did most of the work.

Gellar has also appeared in the films "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "The Grudge" and "Cruel Intentions." She most recentl...

'Vikings' Star Katheryn Winnick: 'Lagertha Is A Free Woman'
Katheryn Winnick doesn't just kick people's behinds as Lagertha on Vikings; she can do that in real life, too. Actress, martial artist and generally strong woman, this is a lady who doesn't have to pretend to be cool - she's as impressive off camera as she is in front of it.

What makes her so inspiring? We caught up with Katheryn last week to discuss where Lagertha is headed in the new season of Vikings, her memorable guest stint on TNT's Transporter: The Series, and how she became the woman audiences know and love today.

"It's a bit surreal," she said, when we asked her about the fantast...

'Nikita' Recap: 'Partners' (2.04)

10/15/2011 12:09am EDT
This week's Nikita continues to dig up the past - but this week it has a specific name and a face, and a whole lot of festering anger.

We're in Turkey this week, and Kelly (Katheryn Winnick) is trying to make a quick escape. When that doesn't go as planned, she starts shooting and steals a getaway van. Yay for generic white vans.

This big, loud escape brings her to the attention of Amanda at Division, who decides to send a cleaning team - and Alex, because Kelly happens to be Nikita's former partner, presumed killed in action on the operation during which Nikita escaped Division. ...
