Announced via social media, Adjoa Andoh, Cassie Clare, Liz Carr, Graham McTavish, Kevin Doyle, Simon Callow, and Chris Fulton are all joining the fantasy drama in new roles. The hit series starring Henry Cavill and based on the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski is currently in production.

The character is a sound advice giver and caretaker who has healed many with her elixirs over the years, among which include Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia.
Clare will take on the role of Phillippa Eilhart, advisor to Redania’s King Vizimir and powerful shapeshifting sorceress. Joining her on the Redanian team as part of the Intelligence secret service is Outlander and Men in Kilts star Graham McTavish. He’ll portray Sigismund Dijkstra, a man with a reputation for his physical strength as well as knowledge of kings and mages.

Downton Abbey‘s Doyle is taking on the part of Ba’lian, an elf seeking refuge on the Continent who is both brave and principled. Fulton, on the other hand, takes a more sadistic role as Rience, a mage who is partial to fire and is employed by a mysterious lord to hunt down a valuable jewel.
And Carr’s Fenn and Callow’s Codringher are considered “partners-in-crime;” they deal with the currency of information, wheeling and dealing when necessary. Stay tuned for more Season 2 details as production on The Witcher continues.
