VARIETY -Katheryn Winnick, star of History Channel’s hit drama “Vikings,” will lend her voice and likeness to the highly-anticipated Activision game “Call of Duty: WWII.”
“Call of Duty” is returning to San Diego Comic-Con this year, and Winnick will join the panel on Thursday. Winnick joins a long list of top talent that have worked on the game series, which also includes Kevin Spacey and Kit Harington.
Winnick will play a brilliant engineer and tactician named Marie, who attempts to help salvage stolen treasures and rescue her brother, Klaus. The “Call of Duty” series continues to be a monster franchise in the video game world.

On “Vikings,” she plays Lagertha, a woman who has chosen to fight as a warrior and shares her husband’s craving for adventure. Her other credits include “Love & Other Drugs” and “50 First Dates.”
Winnick is repped by CAA, Alchemy Entertainment, and attorney Jeff Bernstein of Jackoway, Tyerman, Wertheimer, Austen, Mandelbaum, Morris, & Klein.
“Call of Duty: WWII” is scheduled for release on Nov. 3.
3 days to go.
