CD Projekt RED has announced that Game of Thrones and Last Action Hero actor Charles Dance will be lending his vocal talents and gravitas to the role of the Emperor of Nilfgaard in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

“Charles Dance is the perfect candidate to play the mighty Nilfgaardian emperor in our upcoming title. 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,” said Marcin Blacha, Lead Writer on The Witcher 3.

Dance will play Emperor Emhyr var Emreis, who ravaged the Northern Kingdom in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, and continues to spread terror and despair across the land under Nilfgaard rule. In case you were wondering, he's a bad guy. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out in 2014.

Funny how Game Of Thrones, which is his recent work, is mentioned after Last Action Hero, which is years old. Has he not done anything in between?

Way too early in the books to say for sure, but seems to me like Nilfgaard isnt as bad as everyone says. Sure Geralt has been hanging out with their rivals, but seeing as he always try to be neutral for him it's as much evil as anything else. Glad to hear he's on board=D

Witcher 3 is shaping up to be fantastic! The back-and-forth between Tywin and Joffrey about meetings was one my favorite scenes from last season. "We could arrange to have you carried." Dance's character was also one of the only good things about Alien 3.
