THE WITCHER Season 2 Adds KILLING EVE & THE BRIDGE Actor Kim Bodnia As Vesemir

At long last, Netflix's The Witcher series, which stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, has found its Vesemir in Killing Eve and The Bridge vet Kim Bodnia. He's slated to play a key role this season.

As production gets started on The Witcher season two, Kim Bodnia (Killing Eve; The Bridge) has joined the massive ensemble cast as the fan-favorite Vesemir, who, as fans of the series will know, is a highly-experienced witcher who serves as a mentor and father figure to Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill).

He's being officially described as a "charming relic of the witcher Golden Age, Vesemir is the oldest and most experienced witcher in our series." A survivor of the Massacre at Kaer Morhen, which nearly exterminated the witchers, Vesemir is "fiercely protective of the remaining few, whom he sees as an endangered community who can find glory on 'the Path' slaying monsters."

Bodnia is the latest new face on the season two cast, joining Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones) as Nivellen, Yasen Atour (Young Wallender) as Coen, newcomer Agnes Bjorn as Vereena, Paul Bullion (Peaky Blinders) as Lambert, Thue Ersted Rasmussen (F9) as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross (The Danish Girl) as Lydia and newcomer Mecia Simson as Francesca.

Netflix also recently revealed the directors for the upcoming eight-episode season - Stephen Surjik (DaredevilThe Punisher) will helm episodes 201 and 202, Sarah O'Gorman (Cursed; Jamestown) will helm episodes 203 and 204, Ed Bazalgette (The Last Kingdom; Doctor Who) will helm episodes 205 and 208 and Geeta Patel (Meet the PatelsMarvel's Runaways) will helm episodes 206 and 207. 

Henry Cavill (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) will, of course, return to headline the cast as Geralt of Rivia with the show's two leading ladies, Anya Chalotra (Wanderlust) and Freya Allan (Gunpowder Milkshake), who will reprise their roles as Yennefer of Vengerberg and Ciri of Cintra, respectively. 

Other returning players include Joey Batey (Knightfall) as Jaskier, MyAnna Buring (Kill List) as Tissaia, Tom Canton (Good Karma Hospital) as Filavandrel, Lilly Cooper (Peterloo) as Murta, Jeremy Crawford (Titans) as Yarpin Zigrin, Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks) as Cahir, Mahesh Jadu (Marco Polo) as Vilgefortz, Terence Maynard (Cursed) as Artorius, Lars Mikkelson (House of Cards) as Stregobor, Mimi Ndiweni (Black Earth Rising) as Fringilla Vigo, Royce Pierrseson (Judy) as Istredd, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (Hunter Street) as Dara, Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter) as Triss Merigold and Therica Wilson Read (Young Wallender) as Sabrina.

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
