Newly renewed for season two, Netflix’s The Witcher arrives on December 20. While the main focus has always been on Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan so far, Australian actor Mahesh Jadu plays the powerful and cunning mage Vilgefortz of Roggeveen, someone who will be very significant in the seasons to come.
For now, though, his role won’t be very big as he will appear only in two episodes in season one. Jadu confirmed this in a brief chat with Omegascorpio. He also revealed that he mostly did his own stunts and hurt his shouder once performing in an action scene.
This is checked out by IMDb, which has been surprisingly reliable for The Witcher so far. Mahesh is listed there under episodes 7 and 8, indicating he will be seen during the big action sequence that could be the show’s interpretation of the Battle of Sodden Hill.
