Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju is likely to appear in the second season of Netflix series The Witcher.

In Game of Thrones, Hivju played the role of Tormund Giantsbane, a great and brave Wildling with a big beard and an even bigger axe.

The website Redanian Intelligence, which previously had correct information about upcoming Netflix shows, claims that Hivju will play the role of ‘Nigel’ according to callsheets. This is possibly a code name of the character Nivellen, from The Witcher book The Last Wish. This would be a “charismatic, witty man”.

Hivju’s role within The Witcher has not yet been officially confirmed. The second season of the popular series around Geralt or Rivia should be on the streaming service next year.
