Who is Graham McTavish?

Scottish actor Graham McTavish will be playing Dijkstra (Sigismund Dijkstra) who many will know from CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher as the slimy spy and head of Redanian Intelligence. If he looks somewhat familiar to you, McTavish has also stared as Dwalin in The Hobbit film trilogy, Dracula in Netflix’s animated series Castlevania, The Saint of Killers in the AMC series Preacher, and Dougal Mackenzie in the Starz series Outlander.

Who else is cast to join Season 2 of The Witcher?

Among the all-star cast, Liz Carr (Silent Witness) will play Fenn and Simon Dallow as Codringher, both partners in a detective agency, while Bridgerton star Andoh will play priestess Nenneke. Kevin Doyle who played the Irish valet Joseph Molesley in the TV series Downton Abbey is set to portray Ba’lian and Chris Fulton from Bridgerton will slip into the shoes of Rience, a major antagonist in the Witcher book series.

Cassie Clare is also added to the list who we already know as being cast as Phillipa Eilhart, a sorceress and one of the victims of the Witch Hunts, having been tortured and killed by Archpriest Willemer’s men.

When does Season 2 of Netflix The Witcher release?

The Witcher season two has faced numerous delays to its filming due to the coronavirus crisis and injuries. As season two is still being filmed, no official release date is planned right now but we are hopeful it’ll be this year!
