Khaled Aboul-Naga, Egypt's multi-award winning actor, took to twitter on Saturday to announce his anticipated-appearance on the next episode of the popular Canadian/Irish historical drama Vikings. News about Aboul-Naga's participation in the show were made popular last April and reported on by local and international news publications

Aboul-Naga's character seems to be of an Eastern king, our guess is an Arab, who makes a dramatic intro to the already wildly thrilling History Channel production.

Vikings has been running since 2013 to widespread critical acclaim. Before its 5th season premier, the show was renewed for an additional 20-episode season to be aired next year.
