German actor Alexander Dreymon played the lead character of Uhtred on The Last Kingdom, before wrapping the story up with the movie Seven Kings Must Die. What has he done since?

The short version is nothing, at least so far as movie and TV work is concerned. Since playing Uhtred one last time in Seven Kings Must Die, Dreymon had taken on no new projects, or at least none that he's announced publicly.

Part of that is because he's choosy about what he does. "I don’t have anything that I can announce right now, but I’m really looking forward to the next chapter of my career," Dreymon told Numéro Magazine in June of 2023. "I’m trying to be very thoughtful and picky about my next ventures, both as an actor and as a director. As a producer, I want to continue supporting the projects I believe in, whether there’s a role for me in them or not."

And then there's the matter of Dreymon spending more time at home.

Alexander Dreymon is focused on his new family

According to PEOPLE, Dreymon started dating Girls star Allison Williams in 2019. In 2021, they welcomed a child together. In 2022, Dreymon proposed. We don't know if they're married yet.

With a growing family at home, Dreymon is understandably occupied. "My passion at the moment is trying to figure out how to blow the perfect, giant bubble for my son in our backyard," he said during the Numéro interview. "Or cracking the mysterious code of what food he’s going to want to eat on any given day. Or just staring at him. Honestly, that’s really it. My other passions and hobbies are taking a breather, they’ve got some big competition."

Dreymon is 41 years old, so he has many years of acting ahead of him if he wants it. For right now, he's spending time with his family, but we may yet hear of a new project down the line.
