CD Projekt RED just announced that acclaimed actor Charles Dance, well known for his roles in The Last Action Hero, Alien 3 and Game of Thrones will provide his iconic voice to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, playing the part of the Emperor of Nilfgaard.

Lead Writer Marcin Blacha commented to accompany the announcement:

Charles Dance is the perfect candidate to play the mighty Nilfgaardian emperor in our upcoming title. It’s a dream come true for the team here at RED to be able to work with such an accomplished actor and magnetic personality.

I can definitely agree. I always loved Dance’s acting since I watched him playing the villain in “The Golden Child” with Eddie Murphy (yes, I know, I like cheap movies…Sue me) and I’ve been a fan since. I can’t wait to hear how he’ll portray the Emperor of Nilfgaard, who seems to be a key character in the upcoming game.

Incidentally, today we got to see the new cinematic trailer of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. If you missed it, you should check it out (even if Dance isn’t acting in it), because it’s really fantastic.
