The Witcher Season 2 Casts Vesemir
Kim Bodnia will play one of the oldest and most powerful Witchers.
Kim Bodnia, best known for playing Konstatin in Killing Eve, will play Vesemir in Season 2 of Netflix's The Witcher. Vesemir is Geralt's teacher and one of the oldest and most powerful Witchers. Part of the Witcher Golden Age, Vesemir survived The Massacre at Kaer Morhen, a haunting slaughter that nearly wiped out the Witchers. He is "fiercely protective of the remaining few, who he sees as an endangered community who can find glory on 'the Path' to slaying monsters."
"I am so thrilled to welcome Kim Bodnia to the cast of The Witcher," showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said. "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."
Vesemir will also receive a dedicated animated movie, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, which follows his journey "after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise." The studio behind The Legend of Korra is in charge of the project and The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and writer Beau DeMayo will also participate.
