Game of Thrones actor joins The Witcher 3

Magic Dance.

Veteran actor Charles Dance - best known as Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones - will be joining the cast of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, developer CDProjekt Red has announced.

In addition to Game of Thrones, Dance was in Alien 3 and Last Action Hero.

Dance will play Emperor Emhyr var Emreis, the ruler of Nilfgaard. "Charles Dance is the perfect candidate to play the mighty Nilfgaardian emperor in our upcoming title," said lead writer Marcin Blacha. "It's a dream come true for the team here at RED to be able to work with such an accomplished actor and magnetic personality."

One would assume Emperor Emreis isn't a particularly pleasant fellow as the new Killing Monsters trailer depicts a land under Nilfgaardian rule and it doesn't look like a very cheery place.

The Witcher 3 is due out next year on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
