Cast members of Netflix series ‘The Last Kingdom’ wish Bucks well

Jrue Holiday pulls a

Did you notice Jrue Holiday’s “sword” celebration after hitting a three-pointer this season? The gesture comes from a popular TV show produced by the BBC and available on Netflix, and the cast of the show are rooting for the Milwaukee Bucks in their quest to repeat as NBA champions.

It turns out that one of the main cast members of the last two seasons of “The Last Kingdom,” a historical fiction drama set in medieval England, says he’s been a lifelong Bucks fan. He shared this with Holiday and his teammate Sandro Mamukelashvili in a message tweeted by the official Bucks account on Saturday.

Iceland-born Eysteinn Sigurðarson has played a starring role in the show’s final two seasons and noticed the celebration being explained by Bally Sports Wisconsin broadcaster Zora Stephenson during the regular season finale. Sigurðarson posted his reaction on Instagram.

“When you love a team and watch every game for years, find out they’re watching back,” Sigurðarson wrote with a “stunning” emoji after showing his reaction to a clip from the Bucks’ regular season finale against Cleveland.

Based on a bestselling novel, “The Saxon Stories,” by Bernard Cornwell, “The Last Kingdom” debuted on the BBC in 2015, and all of its five seasons can be found on Netflix.
