The Witcher Season 2 adds Dolittle’s Carmel Laniado

According to Deadline, Dolittle actress Carmel Laniado has been tapped for a recurring role in the upcoming second season of Netflix’s Henry Cavill-led fantasy series adaptation of The Witcher. The new season will mark the British newcomer’s second TV show after making her acting debut in last year’s A Christmas Carol miniseries.

Set to appear in a minimum of three episodes, Laniado will be portraying the role of a young girl named Violet, whose playful and whimsical demeanor is a front for a smarter and more sadistic character. Laniado’s Violet is a new original character that doesn’t exist in Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher books.

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.

The series stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, 17-year-old Freya Allan as Princess Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Mimi Ndiweni as fledgling sorceress Fringilla, Sabrina as Therica Wilson-Read, Millie Brady as outcast Princess Renfri, Adam Levy as the druid Mousesack, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson as Queen Calanthe’s husband, the knight Eist and MyAnna Buring as Tissaia, head of the magical academy.

The Witcher series for Netflix is based on the stories and novels by Andrzej Sapkowski, of which there are eight, which themselves formulated the popular Witcher games franchise which has since spawned a comic book series and a tabletop game. The book series was previously adapted for television in Poland.
