Killing Eve actor Kim Bodnia has signed up for season two of The Witcher.
The Danish actor – known for playing Villanelle’s handler and father figure Konstantin – has been cast in the fantasy series as Vesemir, who’s said to be the oldest and most experienced Witcher in the series.
Based on a series of novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher stars Henry Cavill and centers on a group of “Witchers,” or beast hunters, who develop supernatural abilities at a young age to battle monsters. Season one launched on Netflix at the end of 2019.
“I am so thrilled to welcome Kim Bodnia to the cast of The Witcher,” showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich told Deadline. “I have admired his unique talents in shows like Killing Eve and The Bridge, and cannot wait for him to bring strength, tenacity, and warmth to the character of Vesemir, who is such an integral part of our upcoming season.”
In the meantime, you can catch Bodnia in season three of Killing Eve, which begins Sunday, April 26th at 10/9c on BBC America. Bodnia, who earned a BAFTA nomination for his performance as Konstantin, will star opposite returning favorites Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, and Fiona Shaw, plus new cast members including Dame Harriet Walter (Succession), Danny Sapani (Harlots), and Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones).
