Tywin Lannister’s actor to appear in The Witcher 3

The-Witcher-3-Wild-Hunt

(From Kotaku) One can already make a great deal of comparisons between the dark fantasy world of The Witcher and the arguably darker fantasy world of Game of Thrones. Now there’s one more.

Actor Charles Dance, best known for his outstanding work as the cruel, calculating ruler Tywin Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, will be joining the cast of CD Projekt RED’s upcoming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

He’ll be playing an emperor. Not just any emperor, Emperor Emhyr var Emreis of Niflgaard, head of a mighty empire that is one of the major players in the story of the first two Witcher games and will likely be a central presence in the third game.

This sounds like more than a glorified cameo—with a role like that, Dance will probably play a major part in the story. And given how well he plays a brutal Lannister ruler, a brutal Nilfgaardian ruler should fit right into his wheelhouse.

Meanwhile The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a brand new CG trailer, and geez, it’s looks good.

CD Projekt RED, of course, is developing The Witcher 3; this trailer, however, is from Oscar-nominated visual effects studio Platige Image.

Slated for the Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and the PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be out next year.
