According to a new rumor, Game of Thrones alumn Natalie Dormer may be joining Henry Cavill in the second season of The Witcher.
Production on the second season of The Witcher is currently underway and multiple new cast members have joined Henry Cavill for the series’ sophomore outing. Now, Redanian Intelligence claims Natalie Dormer may have also joined the cast of the series based on evidence found online.
As the outlet explains, Natalie Dormer has been mentioned and seen on the social media accounts of The Witcher crew members. For example, the site says Natalie Dormer was spotted riding horses near a filming location for the second season with a crew member who is said to work with Henry Cavill. Afterwards, a member of the casting department mentioned Natalie Dormer by name in a social media post reading, “when you remember every day is basically a Saturday on The Witcher. Bring [crew member] and Natalie Dormer laughing, dancing and riding horses!”
While nothing official has been confirmed, if true it would not be Natalie Dormer’s first foray into the fantasy genre. In addition to her role as Margaery Tyrell in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Natalie Dormer recently provided the voice of Onica in Netflix’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
Here is the official synopsis for the first season of Henry Cavill’s The Witcher:
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.
