History Channel's Vikings Cast Makes Sick Kid's Dream Come True

I had the privilege to meet this warrior today. Little Max has been battling stage 4 cancer and his big wish was to be King Ragnar for the day. Max, your courage inspires us all! 😘#aoibheannspinktie

(TMZ) -- The folks who play deadly vikings on the hit History Channel show are actually softies at heart -- 'cause they turned a sick little boy into their fearless leader for a day.

Many members of the "Vikings" cast and crew helped grant the wish of a 7-year-old in Ireland this week who's got stage four cancer. His name is Max, and he's part of Aoibheann's Pink Tie foundation -- a similar institution to the U.S.'s Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Production folks tell TMZ Max was told he only has a few months left to live, and his dying wish was to be Ragnar for a day -- the main character on the show. Some cast and crew caught wind of this, and decided to help him out by bringing him on set. 

MAX- 7 years old, fighting cancer for five years, still has the energy to kick my ass. Bjorn Ironside’s got nothing on you my dude! loved having you and your family on set and hope you’re getting ready for round two because I’m gonna be training!! #kingmax #realwarrior

Before long, Max was turned into a mini Ragnar -- with a whole "Vikings" costume and everything. TMZ was told his makeup and hair were actually done by the show's crew.

Max got to hang with a lot of the big players from the series -- which is currently filming in Ireland -- while Skyping with others. He also got to kick some ass, viking-style.

From what TMZ can tell, the real Ragnar would be proud.
