Who is Amma in Vikings? What happened to Amma?

Amma was introduced to the show in season five, as a shieldmaiden who was ordered by Bjorn to look after Magnus (Dean Ridge), the false son of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) on their way back from England.

On the return to Kattegat, she overheard Magnus praying in fear to God, not the Viking God Odin.

Amma was the one to question him about his faith, but he denied to her he was a Christian.

Early in Vikings season six, Amma was seen caring for Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) before he was banished from Kattegat after killing the famous shieldmaiden Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick).

Amma would try to calm Hvitserk down after he began having hallucinations about his brother Ivar trying to kill him.
