We have more casting news for The Witcher season two from Netflix.
Kim Bodnia (Killing Eve, The Bridge) has been cast as Vesemir. The official character description is: a charming relic of the witcher Golden Age. Vesemir is the oldest and most experienced witcher in our series, as well as a father figure to Geralt. As one of the survivors of The Massacre at Kaer Morhen, a haunting slaughter that nearly exterminated the Witchers, he is fiercely protective of the remaining few, who he sees as an endangered community who can find glory on “the Path” slaying monsters.
On the casting news, Executive Producer and Show Runner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich stated “I am so thrilled to welcome Kim Bodnia to the cast of The Witcher. 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.”
If you have yet to watch The Witcher and have no idea what it is about, I’ll bring some clarity for you. The official longline of the series is based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher. It is an epic tale of fate and family. The story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified.
