Netflix’s Witcher collection is marching ever nearer to its second season, and immediately the studio has taken the time to substantiate seven extra forged members for the present. Just a few of these names had come up beforehand – together with Philippa Eilhart – however now it’s official. A few of these characters will likely be at the very least vaguely acquainted to you from the RPG video games, however there are just a few surprises among the many forged.
Amongst these acquainted characters, we have now Dijkstra, the pinnacle of Redanian Intelligence (the in-universe organisation, not the fansite that’s introduced us so many early studies of casting choices like these). He’s performed a considerable position within the video games, and will likely be portrayed within the present by Graham McTavish.
We even have Nenneke (briefly talked about in Witcher 3), a priestess of Melitele who’ll be performed by Adjoa Andoh. We’ll see Chris Fulton as Rience, a serious antagonist by the guide collection. There’s Cassie Clare as Philippa Eilhart, a casting determination that already broke out not too long ago.
One other forged member who was revealed early was Kevin Doyle, and right here Netflix confirms that he’ll be taking part in Ba’lian, an authentic character for the present. Ba’lian is an elf on the run after “violent round-ups within the North”.
Then we’ve obtained Codringher and Fenn, a pair of shady detectives. Simon Callow will likely be taking up the Codhringher, whereas Liz Carr will likely be taking part in Fenn. The latter casting is a little bit of a change from the books, since Fenn is a male character, however between Fenn and Ba’lian it seems like Netflix is open to some inventive license – and hey, after the success of season one, there’s not a lot cause to argue.
