Game of Thrones has become an incredibly popular TV series, building off the Song of Ice and Fire books. The show has a strong fantasy-medieval style, and a very deep story.

It isn't too hard to draw the parallels between Game of Thrones and The Witcher 3, and the similarities don't end there; even the actors are the same...

Tywin Lannister, Game of Thrones

According to developer CDProjektRED, Charles Dance, who plays Tywin Lannister in The Game of Thrones, will be the voice actor of Emhyr var Emreis: The Emperor of  Nilfgaard.

The Witcher 3's writer Marcin Blacha said that Charles Dance is the ideal candidate for the job. Dance is currently 67 years old, and has a broad acting career. Currently, he is still working on Game of Thrones, which is yet to enter its fourth season.


Dance is quite a catch for CDProjektRed, and the familiar voice will help to add a lot of weight to the character in The Witcher 3. Would you like to see other Game of Thrones actors joining the cast of The Witcher 3? Tell us below!
