Gabriel Byrne stars in "Vikings" on History Channel as Earl Haraldson, the most important ruler in Ragnar's district. A man of limited vision, the Earl suspects Ragnar's ambitions and goes head to head with him in a struggle for power and glory. Once a mighty warrior, the Earl, a mighty political leader in his own right, will take on Ragnar, his opposite in every way: a lowly farmer; a young man thirsting for knowledge, and a descendant of the gods.

Byrne previously starred in HBO's "In Treatment" as Dr. Paul Weston. In 2009, Byrne won a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama for the role.

Gabriel Byrne has worked with some of the cinema's leading directors, including the Coen Brothers, Win Wenders, Jim Jarmush, Ken Loach, John Boorman, David Cronenberg and Bryan Singer. Moving between independent and studio films, in addition to producing three pictures and writing two, he has starred in 35 pictures, including "Miller's Crossing," "The Usual Suspects," "Into the West," "The End of Violence," "Dead Man," "Vanity Fair" and "Spider." Recently Mr. Byrne starred opposite Miranda Richardson in Richard E. Grant's directorial debut "Wah-Wah"; opposite Laura Linney in Ray Lawrence's "Jindabyne"; and in "Emotional Arithmetic," also starring Susan Sarandon, Christopher Plummer and Max Von Sydow.

Byrne was nominated for a 2000 Tony Award for Eugene O'Neill's "Moon for the Misbegotten" and made a welcome return to Broadway in 2005, winning glowing reviews for his performance as Cornelius Melody in another O'Neill play, "A Touch of the Poet."
