What is Sexy: Katheryn Winnick

Near the top of our sexy list is actress Katheryn Winnick. You probably recognize her from the critically acclaimed History channel hit Vikings where she plays the fierce shield maiden Lagertha, wife of Ragnar Lothbrok. The character has been hailed as a feminist hero, something which we can overlook since she is so drop dead gorgeous. Winnick was born Katerena Anna Vinitska in Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada on December 17th, 1977 (making her a Capricorn if you're into that stuff). She grew up speaking Ukrainian and didn't even learn full English until she was 8 years old. Her stats are impressive: standing in at 5'6" tall, she fills out her frame with curvy yet trim 34-24-34 measurements. The blonde haired, blue eyes actress has an estimated net worth of $5 million. Katheryn plays a pretty bad ass character on Vikings, but she can back it up in real life: Winnick was kicked out of summer camp for "reckless behavior" when she was 14. She began studying martial arts at age 7 and then won silver medals at the Canadian National Tae Kwon Do finals. Her prowess in martial arts lead to her opening her first martial arts studio at age sixteen. Called Win Kai Martial Arts, the studio expanded to include branches in New York and Toronto. She currently holds a 3rd-Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, a 2nd-Degree Black Belt in Karate, and can defend herself since she is a licensed bodyguard. Needless to say, Katheryn Winnick definitely deserves to be this weeks featured girl in the What is Sexy series. Click here for her official website, Facebook Fan Page, or follow her on Instagram.
