Netflix’s Witcher series is marching ever closer to its second season, and today the studio has taken the time to confirm seven more cast members for the show. A few of those names had come up previously – including Philippa Eilhart – but now it’s official. Some of these characters will be at least vaguely familiar to you from the RPG games, but there are a few surprises among the cast.
Among those familiar characters, we have Dijkstra, the head of Redanian Intelligence (the in-universe organisation, not the fansite that’s brought us so many early reports of casting decisions like these). He’s played a substantial role in the games, and will be portrayed in the show by Graham McTavish.
We also have Nenneke (briefly mentioned in Witcher 3), a priestess of Melitele who’ll be played by Adjoa Andoh. We’ll see Chris Fulton as Rience, a major antagonist through the book series. There’s Cassie Clare as Philippa Eilhart, a casting decision that already broke out recently.
