The second season of Netflix’s The Witcher has undergone a shakeup of sorts, as actor Thue Rasmussen had to drop out of the sophomore season due to a scheduling conflict, and now we know who his replacement is.
Deadline reports that Victoria actor Basil Eidenbenz has come aboard to play Eskel in Season 2. Eidenbenz has been filming scenes for Season 2 since the production resumed again in August. Eskel, a new character for Season 2, is a Witcher from the school of the wolf.
The Witcher was one of the first major productions to be suspended in the UK due to COVID-19, after actor Kristofer Hivju tested positive for coronavirus.
