“A sorceress is never late, nor she is early. She arrives precisely when she means to.”

Known The Witcher news leaking site Redanian Intelligence has shared the new Witcher season 2 casting news. According to the source, Cassie Clare has been cast as Philippa Eilhart in the new season of the series. Clare has worked in stage performances of Beauty & The Beast and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, as well as television series like Ransom, The Bisexual and Brave New World. It is not known yet when Clare will appear in the new season, but given that this news comes towards the end of filming of season 2, it may not be until later in the season.
For those unfamiliar with the character, Philippa Eilhart is one of the most powerful sorcerers in the world of The Witcher who has the ability to turn into an owl. Her character is around 300 years old, and is also one of the more prominent LGBTQ+ characters in the entire franchise. Eilhart has been one of the biggest villains in the Witcher lore, and it’ll be great to see her in live-action facing off against Henry Cavill’s version of Geralt. Hopefully The Witcher has had enough coins tossed at him to earn an extra life. He’s going to need it.
